FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is included with my ticket?

General admission tickets include event admission, 7 tasting tickets, and a compostable tasting cup.

Premium tickets include early admission at 5:00 p.m., extra tasting tickets, access to additional animal exhibits until 6:00 p.m., a souvenir tasting glass, complimentary buffet, and a Family Fun Pack of general admission tickets to come back to the zoo.

Brew at the Zoo tickets do not include admission to the zoo. If you’d like to visit the zoo during operating hours (9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.), you will need to purchase a regular zoo admission ticket. However, if you bring your Brew at the Zoo ticket to the zoo between October 5 and December 31, 2018, you will receive $3.00 off a regular zoo admission ticket.

What if I will not be drinking the beer? Do I still need to buy a ticket?

Yes, a ticket and an ID are required for everyone attending the event. There are no discounted tickets for those who will not be drinking beer, but tasting tickets are transferable.

Are tickets available the day of the event?

If not sold out, Brew at the Zoo tickets will be available at the door, but we have sold out well in advance of the event the last few years. You may purchase tickets online by clicking the “BUY TICKETS” button above.

Can I purchase a bottle or case of beer at this event? Can I drink it at the event?

No, other than the samples, beer will not be sold at this event.

Will there be food available at the event? What kind of food?

Yes, food will be available for purchase from Lancer Catering, and will include grill items, pizza, snacks, sandwiches, etc. Food is cash or credit card only (no checks).

Can I bring my own food?

Because this event is being held inside Lancer Catering’s Food Pavilion and is not a picnic-style event, outside food is prohibited.

Are the items available for purchase at the event cash only, or will you accept credit cards?

Items for sale at this event may be purchased with cash or credit card.  There is an ATM located inside the event for convenient cash needs.

Where do I park? How much does parking cost?

The best parking for this event is in the zoo lots located along Phinney Avenue N. and N. 59th Street. The lot accessible on N. 50th & Fremont Ave. N. will also be open, but the West and North lots are recommended (first come, first served).

Pay-for-parking kiosks are located at each lot. Parking is $6 for cars, and $18 for buses, RVs and other oversize vehicles.

Disabled parking is available in all zoo lots.

If you must park on streets surrounding the zoo, please be courteous and do not block driveways.

What should I wear? What happens if it’s raining?

This is a casual event that takes place in both indoor and outdoor spaces. The event will be held rain or shine, so please dress appropriately.

Can I walk anywhere in the zoo with my beer?

Legally you must stay within the event perimeter (Food Pavilion, West Plaza, Zoomazium, Penguins, Jaguar Cove, walking path, etc.) during event hours. Please be respectful of the barricades and signage that will be in place during the event. Open containers or cups of beer will not be allowed off zoo grounds. 

No drinks allowed in Tropical Rain Forest at any time.

Do I need to bring my own glass, like I did for the zoo’s Tasting Flight wine event?

No. For Brew at the Zoo, compostable cups for general admission ticket holders and souvenir tasting glasses for Premium ticket holders will be provided for sampling the beer and ciders. A limited supply of souvenir glasses will be available for purchase.

Is this event raising money for the zoo?

Yes! Ticket sales, fundraising games or raffles, and extra tasting tickets all raise money to benefit Woodland Park Zoo. Since this is an after-hours fundraising event, regular zoo membership admission does not apply.
