Brews at the Zoo: A Babysitter-worthy Fundraising Two Night Event

Brews at the Zoo proceeds will go to the expansion of the Children’s Petting Zoo

May 26, 2021

On June 11 & 12 from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM the annual Brews at the Zoo fundraiser will return as an in person event to Miller Park Zoo. Participants will enjoy beer tastings from local and regional breweries, hearty snacks from local restaurants, wildlife encounters, and more. Buy tickets HERE.

This year’s event will be split over two nights to better accommodate social distancing. Tickets are available now for the Friday, June 11th and Saturday, June 12th sessions, with each lasting from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M. Tickets are $35 per person or $60 per couple for each evening, and may be purchased only at MPZS.org. Each ticket includes a commemorative glass, four beer samples, and two food samples. Additional sample tickets may be purchased during the event. Presented by Miller Park Zoological Society, Brews at the Zoo proceeds will go to the expansion of the Children’s Petting Zoo, including the addition of Mule Foot Hogs.

“Last year, when we couldn’t host large events at the zoo, Brews FOR the Zoo was a big success thanks to our brewery partners and those beer lovers who purchased the special batches at the breweries,” says MPZS Development Director Paula Pratt. “Though it will look a little different, we’re thrilled to bring Brews back to Miller Park Zoo this year.” To maximize safety and optimize animal viewing, capacity for each evening is limited to 300 ticket holders, and you must be 21 or older to attend. Tickets are available online only and are non-refundable. Guests will be asked to have their ticket codes handy upon entry so they may be safely scanned at the door. Guests will also be asked to maintain a six-foot distance, and masks will be required while not eating or drinking.

The Miller Park Zoological Society (MPZS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the rich history of Miller Park Zoo through fundraising, education and community outreach.
