Step into Kipp Aquarium, Carruth Natural Encounters, and the Reptile & Amphibian House for Meet the Keeper Talks Presented by Phillips 66.

Music and entertainment will delight you as you sample a variety of refreshing beers. Additional beer sample passports will be available for purchase during the night.

At Brew at the Zoo, we are proud to offer local beers and support our local breweries. The Houston Zoo also helps save local species, like the Houston toad and Attwater’s prairie chicken, in the wild. The Zoo manages captive breeding programs for both the Houston toad and Attwater’s prairie chicken, and releases the animals into the wild to help increase populations. Simply by attending Brew at the Zoo, you, too, help save local species in the wild!
