Beer sampling in the beer garden at Zoo Brew

Event Details

Enjoy a pilsner near a penguin or a lager by a lion. Zoo Brew is the Zoological Society’s annual beer- and food-tasting event inside the Milwaukee County Zoo. There are three zones around the Zoo for you to try something new or stick to your favorite brews. Sip a stout in the beer garden surrounded by a campfire. Swish around an IPA in the big cat building while watching the lions, tigers and jaguars. Then savor a microbrew in the Peck Welcome Center while listening to live music. Get a jump start and order a VIP ticket to enter the event one hour early! Or, purchase a designated driver ticket and enjoy the food samples, entertainment and a fall evening in the Zoo.

Special thanks to entertainment and beverage sponsor Molson Coors. Thank you to our 2023 participating breweries and foodies.

Please join us at next year’s Zoo Brew on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2024!
