October 4, 2019
6pm to 10pm - VIP
7PM to 10PM - General Admission

Friends of the Baton Rouge Zoo is hosting its sixth annual Brew at the Zoo on Friday, October 4! As summer temperatures wane and the leaves begin to change colors, guests (21 and older only) are invited to the Zoo for an evening of food tasting, beer tasting, live music and more. Come and sample dozens of craft beers and munch on
pub favorites, or show off your “safari chic” style while listening to the sound of live music.

Pre-purchased tickets are required for entry. Event will go on, rain or shine. Sorry, no refunds.


What's NEW for the 2019
Brew at the Zoo?

Our 6th annual BREW at the Zoo promises to be the best one yet! We’re offering VIP tickets again this year. There will be 200 total available at $100 each & when they’re gone, they’re gone. The VIP experience includes: 

  • An hour early access to the event

  • Skip the lines at express check in

  • Access to the VIP Tent

  • Specialty food and drinks

  • VIP only air-conditioned bathrooms

The animals will be more involved this year! We’ll have even more of our animal ambassadors on hand throughout the night to greet you and be a part of this magical night. After all, it’s BREW at the “Zoo” and we want you to walk away with an experience like no other!

Finally, we know you love the beer, but also know the food is a must too! As such, we’re adding new eateries with scrumptious tastings to satisfy your every craving!
