Zoo Brew is just around the corner! This year, Zoo Brew will be held on Saturday, May 6th, so you need to get tickets, NOW.

Maybe you don't have any idea what I'm talking about when I mention the phrase "Zoo Brew". If this is you, pay close attention, because it's actually a pretty neat event to check out - for the 21+ crowd, at least.

Zoo Brew is an annual fundraiser put on by the Friends of Ellen Trout Zoo, where people can come sample different beer (wine and appetizers from local restaurants, too!), listen to live music, and just have an awesome evening in the zoo!


Yes, I did say fundraiser. The money raised from Zoo Brew benefits future zoo projects. This year, the funds will go towards bringing a gorilla exhibit into the Ellen Trout Zoo!

Here are some of the specifics of Zoo Brew this year:

  • Date: Saturday, May 6th
  • Time: 7PM to 10 PM.
  • Place: Ellen Trout Zoo, Lufkin
  • Price: $50/ticket
  • Who: Adults, ages 21 and older [ID is required]
  • No admittance after 8:30 PM.

Zoo Brew looks to be an awesome event once again this year. For more information, you can check out the Zoo Brew Facebook page.
