Do you like good beer? Do you like big cats? If you answered yes to either question—or even one—then come to Zoo Brew, a Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) fall fundraiser. Beer and big cats are just one part of this adult event, which includes savory foods and sweet desserts. This evening soiree for adults takes place in four locations within the Milwaukee County Zoo: the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country, the Peck Welcome Center, the Flamingo Patio (beer garden), and the U.S. Bank Gathering Place. In its fifth year, Zoo Brew is a fun way to sample new brews, try new foods, meet new people and support the ZSM’s 2014-‘15 annual appeal. From the micro to the macro, guests can sample beers from a wide variety of brewers. You must be at least 21 years old to attend.
