Brew at The Zoo is a fundraiser at The Zoo in Forest Park featuring unlimited craft beer samples from local breweries, a home brew competition, live music, food trucks, games and, of course, animal interactions. The fundraiser supports the general operating costs of the 225+ animals that call The Zoo home, many of which have been deemed non-releasable by a wildlife rehabilitator for reasons relating to injury, illness, permanent disability, habituation to humans and other factors. Come enjoy a day of brews at the zoo!

*Must be 21 or older to attend. No one under 21 will be allowed into The Zoo on Aug. 5*
