Wines and Beers of the WorldGreat wines, good eats, great apes and primates await you at this year’s Wines and Beers of the World event on March 5, 2015. This Zoological Society of Milwaukee fundraiser features libations from around the world and mouthwatering appetizers from Milwaukee-area eateries. Enjoy cheese with your wine and pizza with your beer. Finish the savory stuff with sweet desserts. Then take your treats with you as you stroll past the animals in the Primates of the World and Stearns Family Apes of Africa buildings.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the 2014-15 annual appeal. Last year’s event raised more than $28,000 for the 2013-14 annual appeal. You must be at least 21 years old to attend.
