Ever want to knock back a few delicious craft brews and roam around the Los Angeles Zoo? A special nighttime 21+ event next month is the inaugural annual beer tasting festival taking place right where Angelenos can visit their favorite friends in the animal kingdom.

"Brew at the Zoo" will have 20 California craft breweries on tap, and guests to the ticketed event will have 12 tasting tickets to put to use during the three-hour event. Among the breweries are Eagle Rock Brewery, The Bruery, Left Coast, the So Cal Beer Co., and many more. There will be pub-style food to taste, and live music from KROQ Locals Only bands Heartstop, The Steelwells, The Fling and Upstream to help rock the zoo for a unique evening.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, supporting the Zoo in its mission to nurture wildlife and enrich the human experience.night away.

Tickets are $40 per person (and "designated driver" admission, without beer tickets, are available for $25) and all attendees must be 21 or older.
