Brew at the Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo

2016 Date TBD

Thank you to everyone who attended 2015's Brew at the Zoo and made it a huge success! Stay tuned for updates regarding 2016's event!

This is a 21+ event.

Brew at the Zoo is our annual beer-tasting event featuring stations hosted by local breweries and restaurants. 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. Guests will also have the opportunity to visit Aussie Aviary, a seasonal free-flight exhibit featuring brightly-colored budgies!

Proceeds from Brew at the Zoo support the operation and continued growth of Zoo New England, its education programs and conservation initiatives.
