Pair the boldness of big cats with the bold flavors of many beers, and you’ll get just one aspect of Zoo Brew, a Zoological Society of Milwaukee (ZSM) fall fundraiser. This evening event kicks off with the tapping of a ceremonial firkin, and takes place in four locations at the Milwaukee County Zoo: the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country, Flamingo Patio 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 drinks, try new foods and meet new friends. It’s also a great way to support the ZSM’s 2013-14 annual appeal. So soak your taste buds in beer suds and come to Zoo Brew! You must be at least 21 years old to attend.
