Brew To Be Wild
Craft beer, live music, and zoo animals: that's the recipe for Brew To Be Wild. The event, held at Lincoln Park Zoo, corrals a wealth of brews from more than 35 breweries in Chicagoland and the nation, then serves them up throughout the zoo's verdant gardens. Guests can sample ales, porters, pilsners, and lagers from both established and fledgling beer makers such as Michigan's Bell's Brewery, Minnesota's Surly Brewing Company, Chicago's Blue Nose Brewery, and Lombard's Noon Whistle Brewing Company. As they sip and wander the grounds, they can play lawn games and boogie to tunes spun by DJs and zebras dressed as DJs.
