Friends of the Louisville Zoo is excited to welcome a sold-out crowd on Saturday, August 24 for the 10th annual Brew at the Zoo. Ticketed guests will enjoy unique brews from dozens of local and regional breweries, as well as a selection of locally produced wines and delicious tastings from local restaurants. Food samples are available between 4-6:30 p.m.; beer/wine will be available until 8:30 pm. This is a rain or shine event. All proceeds benefit the Louisville Zoo. Please drink responsibly.

  1. Your ID. All guests musts be 21 or older and have a valid ID to enter the event. No exceptions will be made for any reason.

  2. A print out of your ticket or present the ticket barcode on your smart phone to gain admission. Each ticket barcode allows only one use per scan. The first valid scan voids the ticket. Unauthorized duplication or sale of your ticket may prevent your admittance to the Louisville Zoo.

  3. Lawn chairs and blankets to lounge on the lawn while listening to the 70’s and 80’s inspired tunes of 100% Poly.

  4. Cash and/or credit cards so you can bid on great silent auction items or visit the Zoo’s satellite Gift Shop, which will be located near the event space. From 7-9 p.m. you’ll also have the opportunity to grab a snack to munch on before you leave for the night.

Everyone is encouraged to drink responsibly. In the event that you need an alternate ride home, there will be a “Call a Cab” station near the exit of the Zoo. Volunteers will be available to help you call a cab so everyone in your group/party arrives home safely.
