Time Out says

Sip craft brews while staring up at zoo animals at this annual beer extravaganza hosted by Brookfield Zoo, where guests over the age of 21 are invited to try beer and drink samples from more than 80 vendors—including big-name producers like Sam Adams and Guinness as well as local purveyors such as Maplewood Brewing & Distilling and Right Bee Cider. Choose from a full or half session (which grants you access to the event for four and two hours, respectively) or spring for a VIP ticket to enjoy specialty brew and food sampling as well as a visit with the zoo's animal ambassadors. 


$40 half session, $60 full session, $95 VIP
