Brew at the Zoo!!!

Don’t miss the seventh annual Brew at the Zoo! This beer-tasting event offers guests the opportunity to walk on the wild side as they sample offerings from local breweries and restaurants. The entire zoo will be open for this event, with the exception of the seasonal Butterfly Landing exhibit. Sip some delicious brews and visit with western lowland gorillas, ring-tailed lemurs, ocelots, pygmy hippos, and other species in the Zoo’s Tropical Forest Pavilion, as well as giraffes, zebras, kangaroos and many other animals. Don’t miss a visit to Aussie Aviary, a seasonal free-flight aviary featuring brightly-colored budgies!
