The Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s annual Zoo Brew, sponsored by Sazama Design Build Remodel – Sept. 29, 2016
There’s nothing quite like enjoying a cold one next to an exotic animal. You can do just that at the Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s seventh annual beer tasting fundraiser, Zoo Brew, happening Sept. 29. While sipping on your stout, you’re directly contributing to wildlife conservation, education, and support of the Milwaukee County Zoo and its animals. Enjoy beer and food samples in various locations around the Zoo, including the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country, the Peck Welcome Center and the Flamingo Patio Beer Garden. Sponsored by Sazama Design Build Remodel, Zoo Brew is a fun and delicious way to meet new people, savor some refreshments, and support your favorite animals at the Milwaukee County Zoo. VIP ticket holders get early admission to the event and are entered into a drawing to win a behind-thescenes tour of the Zoo. You must be at least 21 years old to attend, and designated driver tickets are available.
