From 6 to 7:30 pm grizzly bears, giraffes, lemurs, sea lions and more will be on exhibit. Stop by and see your favorite animals and then join in all of the Brew fun.

We’ve got all your favorites throughout the park. Swing by the retro arcade, or enjoy a live band and DJ entertainment. Test your animal knowledge with animal trivia, play a round of animal bingo or see how you measure up to some of our animal athletes. VIP guests will enjoy exclusive activities including mind reading & hypnotist shows, Disney-themed karaoke and a Brewty Bar, aka and dress up photo booth to bring your animal inspirations to life!

At 7 pm we'll start pouring samples of over 100 varieties of beer, wine, cider and more, so you can find a new favorite or enjoy a classic. When you're drinking beer, you need food, and we'll have plenty of options. Sample from numerous food trucks or enjoy classic bites at one of our zoo cafes, there will be a wide array of treats available for purchase throughout the zoo.

Round up the troops and join us for the wildest party in New York City.

Can't wait to come back! We had a great night! Sea lions are awesome.”
