Brew at the Zoo 2017 - Sold Out

Brew At The Zoo 2017 is completely SOLD OUT!

Thank you for your support!


Palm Beach County's most unique craft beer festival is back!

Advance tickets required.

Celebrate South Florida's amazing beer with samples from 25-30 of our local brewers.  The breweries are spread through out the Zoo with 2-3 different brews each.  That means 60+ different beers that you could try.  Brewery reps are on hand to answer your questions about their products.  Plus, you'll get to see amazing wildlife and many are highly endangered species.

Since all the beer is brewed within 200 miles or less of the Zoo, this is the lowest carbon footprint beer festival in the Southeast.  Plus, local breweries create local jobs.  Both important considerations in living sustainably!  Also, many craft brewers are very conservation oriented in their daily operation.  That's good for you and for wildlife!

Scroll down for the ticket purchase link, brewery list and food vendor list.

This is a great opportunity to try out some phenomenal craft beer, so you know what you want to buy at your favorite watering hole or grocery.  Please remember, this is a sampling event, with 2 oz samples in your collectable mug.  And while your admission includes unlimited samples we know that you'll drink responsibly!  BTW, if you try to sample every brew available during the event you would probably blow a 0.15 BAC or greater...twice the legal limit.

Here's what's included:

General Admission $35.00
