Join Us for the Zoo Brew Release Party on May 21

May 4, 2018

Fernson Brewing Company is thrilled to present Zoo Brew 2018 in collaboration with the Great Plains Zoo and Hy-Vee. A portion of each can sold will directly benefit the new African Lion exhibit at the Great Plains Zoo. Join us on May 21 as we unveil this year's can and the new beer inside. 

The Event: Spend an evening drinking brew at the Zoo! Hy-Vee will have food available for purchase and Zoo Brew cans for sale. Learn more about this fun collaboration and take a peek at the Snow Monkey and Asian Cat exhibits. The event is free.

The Beer: Last year, Zoo Brew was a bright, golden ale at 5% ABV. This year, it's something new! Stay tuned for more details.

The Collaboration: Zoo Brew is a one-off beer benefitting the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls. The beer is a limited release, so it won't be around long. Try it first at the release party, then take a pack home from any Sioux Falls Hy-Vee location, as well as Hy-Vee stores in Brookings, Yankton and Vermillion.

The event will be held in the Plaza at the Great Plains Zoo. In the case of inclement weather, the party will be moved inside the Delbridge Museum of Natural History.

The Zoo Brew Release Party is intended for Zoo guests 21 years and older.

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
