Brew 2 at the Zoo 2017 - NEW DATE

The NEW DATE is set!  Brew 2 At The Zoo 2017 will happen on Friday October 13th.

If you've already purchased tickets, they will be good for that date!

Thank you for your patience and 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 at least 25 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.

General Admission $37.50 + service charge

Thank you for your cooperation.

Event entry information: Have your legal, government issued ID (showing that you are 21 or older) and your printed bar code ticket or mobile device ticket handy.  Our ticketing team will go down the line checking ID's, scanning & collecting tickets, and issuing wristbands.  We strongly recommend that your entire party enter the line together.  If your driver has dropped you off and parked in Dreher Park South, joining you in line after your party has been wristbanded, be sure they see one of our ticketing team to get their ticket scanned.  Wristbands will only be issued to people presenting a valid ticket and ID.  Any pereson without a wristband will not be admitted and in fairness to those who follow the procedure any issues will be resolved after all wristbanded guests have entered the event. If you exit the event, no re-entry is permitted.
