Brew at the Zoo One Week Away

Animals, entertainment, local food trucks and more than 100 craft beers are all on tap for the seventh annual Brew at the Zoo set for Friday, June 1 from 6:30 to 11 p.m.

Brew at the Zoo, voted the best beer event by Nashville Scene writers in 2017, allows guests the opportunity to wander the Zoo trails while sampling beer from more than 60 craft breweries from around the country. Many of the Zoo’s animal exhibits will be open until sundown with keepers available to answer guests’ questions. Other available activities include rides on the Wild Animal Carousel and the Soaring Eagle zipline, dinner from food truck favorites, live music and special animal encounters. 

General admission tickets for Brew at the Zoo are $65 a person, and VIP tickets are $125. VIP tickets include specialty beer tastings, food pairings, animal encounters in a private lounge, as well as unlimited access to the Conservation Lounge.

For a $10 donation ($15 at the door) the Zoo is once again offering the Conservation Lounge; a swanky lounge with specialty beers, games and animal encounters. All proceeds from the Conservation Lounge benefit this year's field conservation intitative: The Bongo Surveillance Project (BSP).

Designated driver tickets are also available for $30 and VIP designated driver tickets are available for $60. Brew at the Zoo is for adults ages 21 and over, and children will not be allowed to attend the event.
