Don’t miss our fifth annual beer-tasting event featuring stations hosted by local breweries and restaurants.

This is the first year the entire Zoo will be open for the event! Sip some delicious brews and visit with western lowland gorillas, ring-tailed lemurs, ocelots, pygmy hippos, and other species in the Zoo’s Tropical Forest Pavilion, as well as giraffes, zebras, kangaroos and many other animals. Guests will also have the opportunity to visit Aussie Aviary, a seasonal free-flight exhibit featuring brightly-colored budgies!

This is a carbon neutral event! This event’s electricity has been matched with 100% local wind power through Mass Energy Consumers Alliance. Learn more about greening your own electricity at massenergy.org.

Proceeds from Brew at the Zoo support the operation and continued growth of Franklin Park Zoo, its education programs and conservation initiatives.

Entertainment

DJ BK

Andrew Geano is a Boston-based singer-songwriter who has been performing his unique style of deep, enigmatic acoustic pop-rock throughout the metro area since 2011. Engaging melodies laced with poignant lyrics and rich acoustic textures, Andrew's style of music is just as much influenced by the anthemic sounds of rock bands such as Radiohead, Pavement, Brand New and R.E.M., as it is the intimate stylings of solo artists such as John Mayer, Liz Phair, Jeff Buckley, and Loudon Wainwright III.

Transportation
