Brew at the Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo

Saturday, August 20, 3:30 - 7:30 p.m.

This is a 21+ event.

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. Complimentary hot dogs and french fries will also be provided.

The entire Zoo will be open for this event, with the exception of the seasonal Butterfly Landing exhibit and the Bird's World building. Sip some delicious brews and visit with western lowland gorillas, ring-tailed lemurs, ocelots, and other species in the Zoo’s Tropical Forest, 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! There will even be added fun for Pokemon trainers, as lures will be set throughout the event at various Pokestops throughout the Zoo!
