Brew at the Zoo

Saturday, Aug. 30


Beer has been paired with practically everything. From food and bike races to running and indie movies at the Flicks, the world's most popular alcoholic beverage has woven itself into the fabric of everything else. Boiseans have long been sipping suds while admiring wildlife, but for the first time ever, they'll be able to drink at the zoo.

That's because Idaho Brewers United and Zoo Boise have teamed up for Brew at the Zoo, which goes down Saturday, Aug. 30. From 5:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m., attendees can nosh on appetizers--additional food is available for purchase--listen to live music, check out the animals and, of course, drink. Wander by the warty pigs or peep the penguins: Nobody will stop you for having a beer in your hand.

This event is for adults 21 and older, so no kiddies, please. Designated drivers get in for $10.
