Brew at the Zoo


THANK YOU to everyone who celebrated Brew at the Zoo 2014 with us!

2014 Event details:

Event Layout and Schedule (pdf)


Don’t miss our fifth annual beer-tasting event featuring stations hosted by local breweries and restaurants (scroll down for complete list).

This is the first year the entire Zoo will be open for the event! 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!

Banana Weizen, anyone?
Last month, our beloved gorilla, Okie, turned 21. To celebrate, our friends at Hopster's brewed a special Banana Weizen brew in his honor! The beer will be available exclusively at Brew at the Zoo, and on-tap at Hopsters in Newton, MA, following the event with 30 percent of proceeds benefiting Zoo New England!

This is a carbon neutral event!
Brew at the Zoo's electricity has been matched with 100% local wind power through Mass Energy Consumers Alliance. Learn more about greening your own electricity at massenergy.org.

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