Zoo Brew & Wine Too

Saturday, June 16, 2018

The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park invites you to raise your glass for conservation! On Saturday, June 16, 2018 the 15th annual Zoo Brew & Wine Too craft beer festival will be held at the Binghamton Zoo from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

Zoo Brew & Wine Too takes place inside the Binghamton Zoo! Breweries and wineries will be set up throughout the park so guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of the zoo while sipping on local and regional beer and wines!

This event is limited to guests 21 years of age and over. General admission and designated driver tickets are on sale now at the link below.

All proceeds from Zoo Brew & Wine Too go directly towards supporting the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park’s conservation efforts. If you have any questions, please call the zoo’s Development Department at (607) 724-5461 ext. 231.

BEER LAUNCH: In 2017, Galaxy Brewing Company partnered with the Binghamton Zoo to offer a brand new craft beer, IPA for Animals! We are excited to announce IPA for Animals 2.0 will launch at this year’s Zoo Brew & Wine Too! After the launch, $1.00 from every pint sold at Galaxy Brewing Company will come back to support the Binghamton Zoo’s conservation efforts!

Zoo Brew & Wine Too is sponsored in part by Rocco J. Testani Inc., Galaxy Brewing Company, Magic 101.7, and 102.5 The Vault.
