Lions and tigers and brews, oh my!

Brew Lights is a one night only, 21+ event where guests get to experience all the lights of Zoo Lights while sampling beer and cider from regional breweries. Join us on Thursday, December 1st from 6:30pm - 9pm to experience the Zoo in a whole new light! You must be 21+ to attend Brew Lights. Children and infants will not be permitted to enter.

General Admission - $65

General Admission includes a commemorative drinking glass and unlimited beer samples from all of our participating vendors. 

Designated Driver - $30

We encourage everyone to have a plan for transportation to and from Brew Lights. Designated Driver tickets will only be served non-alcoholic beverages.

VIP Tickets - $100

This year, we are also offering several VIP ticket options. All VIP tickets include a special animal encounter and early entrance in to the Zoo. VIP Animal encounters begin at 5:30pm. Please note that alcohol will not be served until after your animal experience.

VIP TOUR OPTIONS:

  • *SOLD OUT* VIP Polar Bear Training Session - join our keepers for a chance to see how we train our largest bears and learn about why that training helps them participate in their own healthcare. This demonstration takes place outdoors.
  • VIP Aviary Tour - come in from the cold and get a guided tour of our Aviary. See where our sloth hangs out, learn about our unique bird species and get the chance to meet one of our feathered friends. 
  • VIP Wreath Making - browse enrichment is something that many of our animals enjoy! Start this experience with an animal encounter where you get a chance to see how your wreath might be used. Then join our horticulturalist and make your very own animal enrichment wreaths. Your wreaths will be given to our animals throughout the winter. 
  • VIP Seal Training Session - did you know that we brush our seals teeth? Did you know that our seals recycle? Come learn about how we work with our harbor seals. This demonstration takes place outdoors.
