Per ABC regulations, Zoo Brews will operate with a “Penny-A-Pour” system! Each sample will be worth one penny. Guests will drop their penny into a bucket at each booth in order to receive a sample. If you don’t have pennies lying around, we will have a penny redemption booth at each vendor station, where you can cash in larger coins for pennies! All pennies collected will be donated to our Animals Fund. Guests can purchase full-size beer and wine for an additional cost at Flamingo Cart on Henley Lawn.
