A wide variety of beers from regional brewers will be featured at the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park's annual Zoo Brew event.

Organizers say the zoo pavilions will be transformed into a beer garden to allow people to sample some of their favorite brews from a half-dozen producers.

The Zoo Brew will be held from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the zoo on Binghamton's South Side.

Tickets will be available at the door. The cost is $30 for zoo members and $35 for non-members. Participants will be able to sample beverages and freshly-grilled foods. They'll also receive a souvenir mug.

Tickets for designated drivers will be available for $10.

The Zoo Brew event is open to those who are at least 21 years old. There's more information available at the zoo's website.

The zoo's Melissa Grippin and Rachel Davenport visited WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program to discuss the event. They brought Rex, a Savannah monitor, with them as a "surprise guest."
