The 5th Annual Brew at the L.A. Zoo, one of summer’s most popular events for guests 21 and over, returns on Friday, August 7, 2015, 7 to 11 pm, featuring an after-hours visit to the Zoo with beer samples from 55+ local craft and microbreweries and an eclectic music lineup including “the best of the worst of the ’80s” with The Spazmatics; The Noble Gasses surf band; The Black Canyon dance band; live karaoke with Casual Encounters; and something completely different from Der Burgermeister Boys, a German Polka band.

New this year is a special VIP Lounge with complimentary food, including a bountiful buffet offering early 6 pm access, hors d’oeuvres, snacks, specialty cocktails and exclusive access to several breweries.

Other highlights are dancing with DJ Johnny Hawkes, an array of “pub grub” food for purchase, photos with the celebrated “Beer Girls,” zookeeper talks, up-close encounters with some of the Zoo’s smaller residents and visits to animal habitats.  Adding to the brew mix is Wreck Check, which will be on standby to provide breathalyzer services.  With sell-out crowds at the four previous Brew at the L.A. Zoo evenings, advance ticket purchase is strongly suggested.
