Brew at The Zoo!

We are so excited to be going to the Brew at The Zoo!

THURSDAY, JULY 11, 2013, 6-9 P.M.

The National Zoo wants you to raise your glass to conservation and join FONZ at our annual Brew at the Zoo, where you can sample the best beers from more than 60 craft and microbreweries. The best part? Proceeds from this festive event go towards animal care and conservation at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and around the world. Now that’s something worth toasting to.
