When you go to the zoo, you don't normally go there just to drink. You go to see the great animals and have a blast among nature but having a beer usually isn't really at the top of your list. Well, that is about to change because the Dallas Zoo is having Brew at the Zoo on Sept. 13 where you will be able to sample from over 30 breweries among your favorite furry pals.
During the event, you will not only be able to sample from both local and national breweries, but you will also be able to enjoy unique animal encounters. The encounters include animal-themed talks with the zookeepers to learn more about and interact with the wonderful creatures at the zoo. The event will be held in the Wilds of Africa section of the zoo which means you can visit the lions, elephants, and giraffes.
You will find games through this section of the zoo and since the event is adult-only, you can feel free to let your competitive side show a little more than usual. If you feel like just hanging out, you can enjoy music from the DJ that will be playing throughout the night. You will find food options such as Serengeti Grill, Bantu BBQ, Coop on the Fly, and Kilimanjaro Kones on the chance you need a tasty snack to pair with your beers.
Tickets for the event start at $30 and work their way to $80 depending on what ticket package you choose to get. Your tickets include admission to the event, a beer card, parking, and plenty of animal encounters. Visitors will be able to purchase additional beer cards at the event for only $10. Each beer card gets you six samples of four ounces each.
The Dallas Zoo always has incredible deals, events, exhibits, and new animals popping up in their amazing establishment. You will never experience the same Dallas Zoo twice, for there is always something new to experience, like their Backstage Safari Tour! Also, be aware of their incredible One Dollar Sale days that happen every once in a while that gives you $1 admission plus super cheap animal encounters and more!
Brew at the Zoo will be from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Dallas Zoo located at 650 S. R.L. Thornton Fwy., Dallas, TX 75203. For more information on the event, you can visit the event Facebook page here.
