Safety Precautions

In order to host a fun and safe event for our guests, we have made a few changes to Brew this year:

  • Sanitizing stations and 6ft queue lines will be at each brewery throughout the zoo.
  • Compostable tasting cups will be at each station to avoid touch points and cross contamination.
  • Staff and volunteers will be wearing face masks and gloves for your safety.
  • We have limited the event capacity to 350 guests to ensure ample space for social distancing.
  • Indoor buildings and play areas will remain closed.

Limited VIP Tickets

Ticket includes early entrance at 6 p.m., four additional tastings and a full size beer ticket.

VIP tickets are available for the July, September and October Brews ONLY. 

*To ensure guest safety, indoor buildings, including the reserved VIP seating area, remain closed and VIP food has been removed. Prices have been reduced to reflect these changes
