Zoo Brew Adds Another Date7/21/2017
DES MOINES, Iowa — Lions, tigers and beers, oh my. Iowa’s Blank Park Zoo announced today that Zoo Brew is adding another date to the schedule for 2017 to make up for a Zoo Brew that was cancelled in June because of severe weather. On Friday, August 4, Burnin’ Sensations will perform and the theme for the evening will be “Around the World.” In addition, the theme and band for the August 9 Zoo Brew has been changed to 60’s Night featuring the band Rocky Raccoon.
“We are thrilled that we are able to reschedule the cancelled Zoo Brew, and accommodate another Zoo Brew evening this summer,” said Jenny Harmeyer, chief brew master. “This will be the first time we have had Zoo Brew on a Friday and the first time we have had two Zoo Brews in one week.”
Each Zoo Brew offers live music, fun, a variety of beverage sampling and a cash bar featuring beer, wine, and hard cider. Food is also available for purchase at the Safari Grill and a Hy-Vee food stand. Zoo Brew is presented by Hy-Vee.
