Where would you rather hangout, the lion’s den or the monkey bar? On Friday, September 16 from 6 – 10 pm, you can choose at the Houston Zoo, where you can have a howling good time playing games, listening to music, and sipping on some of the finest ales the city of Houston has to offer.
Last year, Brew at the Zoo featured not one, but two live artists with a live band staged at their reflection pool and a DJ in the Lonestar Game Room. Additionally, the event featured a ton of games including skee-ball, pool, darts, and foosball, as well as a photo booth, caricature artist in addition to the ground’s many lush photo back drops.
Attendants could also take a spin on the carousel, make their own license plate, and even catch a live ice carving experience at 9 pm – that’s right, ice carving in Texas summer.
If that doesn’t get your bees buzzing, Brew at the Zoo will feature tastings from Saint Arnold Brewing Company, 8th Wonder Brewery, Galveston Island Brewing, Eureka Heights Brew Co., Tupps Brewery, No Label Brewery, and Karbach Brewing Co.
But that’s not all, Brew at the Zoo allow visitors to go puppy eyed at the new baby elephants, feed the giraffes, check out the Reptile House and Natural Encounters Building, and hear of the special keeper talks.
Tickets to this wonderful event go on sale for members on August 8, and to the public on August 10 on the zoo’s website. For $45, attendants can purchase a Texas Beer Pass which includes a commemorative souvenir cup, six 4-oz beer samplings from the breweries of their choosing.
For those not looking to boogie with the bear, event passes will be available for $35 that do not come with beer samples or a souvenir mug, but do include access to the rest of the festivities. Ice mugs – yes, made of ice – are also available for $15.
