Unhosted: Brew at the Zoo

If you remember Cyndi Lauper, Guns N' Roses, Bruce Springsteen and Beastie Boys than you are not going to want to miss this Brew at the Zoo as we take you back to a great decade and spin some of your favorite records. Enjoy some of the area's best breweries Summer Ales. Rock out to music by "the ultimate eighties dance band," Big '80's. Enjoy a casual beer tasting from local breweries as you stroll through the zoo.

Tastings are included and full-size beers will be available for purchase at $4 each. Additional tasting cards are $10. Listen to music and check out our animal exhibits at this special after-hours party. Limited tickets available so make your reservations now!

Registration is a bit convoluted, so I am going to make this easier. You MUST have an account on their site before buying tickets. The easiest way is to register on their site first to create an account, rather than trying to purchase tickets right away. I received and error after creating my account, but I was able to purchase tickets.

Tickets are MAILED, so allow time to receive them.

If you already have an account, you may skip the Registration.

Once you've created an account and password, then continue to the site below and click the "Click here to register" link on the event page, and follow the prompts to select your tickets, login, and complete your purchase.

      I've never been to one of these, so I don't know the layout. I'll hand out around the beer area until 7:00 or until everyone is there. I'm wearing a red shirt, hard to miss!

    How is this event now? I went a couple years ago and it was an absolute mess. +20 minute lines for each beer. Everyone ran out very early.

      I have no idea, I've never been to one. Was that one of the first Brew at the Zoo events? There's four of them this summer alone. Hopefully they have learned from past experience. Has anyone else been to one of these in the last year or two?
