Whether you prefer sours or stouts, pale ale or porters, IPAs or imports, Zoo Brew has the perfect pick to please your palate. The 21 and over crowd can sample craft brews from several local microbreweries and distributors in a new progressive tasting format with stations in both the Malawi Event Center and the Lodge! There will be live music from local acoustic guitarists in both facilities. Additional sample tickets will be available for purchase and concession stands will be open throughout the park.

Parking is complimentary for Zoo Brew ticket holders. Guests must park at the main entrance, off the Anthony Wayne Trail. An attendant checking IDs, collecting tickets, and directing guests will be present at the main gates. Each guest will receive 12 drink tasting tickets, along with a souvenir light up tasting glass.

All individuals attending the Brew event must be age 21 or older. Valid ID will be required. The Toledo Zoo reserves the right to refuse entry to any individual or party who does not comply with this policy. Refunds will not be issued for tickets purchased for any party that is under age 21 or can’t provide valid ID at the time of entry.
