Sunset Zoo Hosts Brew At The Zoo

By  | 

MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Sunset Zoo was packed Friday night for its 2014 edition of Brew at the Zoo.

Nearly 450 patrons were on hand to enjoy seven different beer samples from Tallgrass Brewery, as well as unlimited food samples from Hy-Vee & the Friendship House.

Over the past few years the event has moved inside the zoo’s Nature Exploration Center, but this time around, by the request of those attending, Brew in the Zoo has returned outside.

"The first few years we were actually inside the main zoo and then a couple years ago we moved it back up here when we opened up this new air conditioned facility," said Marketing & Development Officer Ella Casey. "And then we heard, you know, let’s take it back down below again. So this year we are experimenting again and we are back inside the main zoo. All of our stations are sprinkled out, more like Wine in the Wild."

Proceeds benefited the Friends of Sunset Zoo's Conservation Team and their wildlife conservation efforts.
