On Friday, August 25, from 7 to 11 pm, “L.A.’s most unique brew fest” returns to the Los Angeles Zoo for its 11th installment and will feature more than 40 breweries and cideries, along with pub-style grub, live music, a DJ dance party, and of course, wildlife.
Brew at the L.A. Zoo gives guests the opportunity to try a wide range of styles from a variety of breweries, including ales, pilsners, porters, and stouts to the more obscure. Beer lovers will sip and stroll amidst the beauty of nature as they enjoy engaging keeper talks and animal feedings.
Live music includes high-energy performances by ‘80s classic cover band Flashback Heart Attack and electrifying Latin music cover band The All the Vibes Band playing alternating sets throughout the night. GEC Events’ DJ and Street Team will be hosting a heart-pounding dance party.
Pub-style food and food truck offerings including Baby’s Badass Burgers, Cousin’s Maine Lobster, Burnt to a Crisp Texas BBQ, Border Grill, Kings Wings, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Wetzel’s Pretzels, and more will be available for an additional charge. Adding to the Brew at the L.A. Zoo experience is the special exhibition Wildworks: Illuminating Conservation Stories, on display through August and featuring 15 large-scale animal paintings by Denver-based contemporary artist Russell Ronat.
During evening events, these strikingly colorful paintings are illuminated to spectacular effect. The exhibit includes custom works of a California condor and peninsular pronghorn, created specifically for the L.A. Zoo to highlight two of its most successful conservation initiatives. These works of art were created specifically for display in zoo settings to drive conservation efforts and awareness. Each piece highlights the beauty and fragility of species represented at the Zoo, including many that are endangered.
