Big Cats and Bold Flavors – Oct. 24
Pair the boldness of big cats with the bold flavor of many beers, and you get one aspect of Zoo Brew, a Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) fall fundraiser. This evening event for adults on Oct. 24 takes place in three locations within the Milwaukee County Zoo: the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country (which includes a beer garden), the Peck Welcome Center and the U.S. Bank Gathering Place. In its fourth year, Zoo Brew is a fun way to sample new brews, try new foods, meet new friends and support the ZSM’s 2013-‘14 annual appeal. From the micro to the macro, guests can sample beers from about 30 different brewers and munch on snacks and desserts from more than 20 area vendors. You must be at least 21 years old to attend.
