Houstonians will once again save animals in the wild by drinking beer at the Houston Zoo. After a sell-out event in 2018, the zoo will host the second annual Brew at the Zoo on Thurs., April 25. This year’s event offers a larger layout, VIP access, and an expanded beer menu for guests to sample a variety of beer and cider as they explore the zoo.
Entertainment, including live music by local musicians, unique animal encounters, fun photo ops, and lawn games, will delight event-goers throughout the evening. Pub-style grub will also be available for purchase during the event.
Tickets go on sale to the public on Wed., March 6. General admission tickets are $45 and include six four-ounce samples, a souvenir sampling mug, and an evening filled with music, entertainment and special animal experiences. A designated driver ticket is also available for $25 to encourage responsible driving.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $60 each. This VIP ticket includes the same benefits as general admission, plus early entry into the event and a larger souvenir beer sampling mug.
The zoo is proud to offer local beers and support local breweries at Brew at the Zoo. The conservation-based organization also helps save local species, like the Houston toad and Attwater’s prairie chicken, in the wild. The zoo manages conservation breeding programs for both the Houston toad and Attwater’s prairie chicken and releases the animals into the wild to help increase populations.
