Los Angeles Brew at the Zoo

The Los Angeles Brew at the Zoo is an event put on by the zoo itself, and is on its 5th year. If this line tells us anything, it’s that this event is sought out by beer lovers across Los Angeles, and that you should probably attend next year before the event gets overrun.

Zoo Brew line

This was the general admission line, where the VIP ticket allows you an hour early entry, typical to most beer festivals. I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.

Brew Zoo Map

Before we even got to the front of the line a zoo employee was walking around handing out maps. (nice touch) Unbeknownst to me, this event was basically spread almost throughout the ENTIRE Los Angeles Zoo. There were zones labeled with specific breweries…

Zoo Brew 1

VIP lounges spread throughout (which I did not have access to), game stops, and pub food spots too.

Brew at the zoo cup

Of course upon entering you get a wristband corresponding with your ticket, a map if you didn’t get one already, and a little tasting glass to get your drink on. Most beer fests, like the Surf ‘n’ Suds beer festival for instance, had glass cups. The Zoo was smart by giving you a plastic one with a handle. Easier to hold, and not as dangerous when the drunk people inevitably drop their glasses. Because it will, and always does happen.

Zoo Brew game zone

The game stop my sister and I found bestowed a giant game of chess, giant Jenga, giant connect four, and then smaller versions of each with tables. No one was enjoying the festivities until my sister and I wandered in to play some connect four…then everyone started to drink a little more and enjoy playing child games with adult beverages. Always makes for a fun night. I thought this was a super cool touch to an already awesome event!

Zoo Brew Angel City

Of course, there were awesome breweries strewn across the entire zoo, Angel City Brewery being one of them. Angel City is cool because they’re local! They’re located in downtown LA. It’s nice to have breweries native to Los Angeles right here where we can try them!

Most of the breweries featured their IPA’s because they’ve become wildly popular in the last few years. I also think this is a good way for patrons to get their buzz on even when they’re only getting 2 oz pours at a time. And the lines were no joke. VIP is definitely the way to go for this event.

Zoo Brew Amp

There were also radio stations (Amp Radio, KROQ) and cover bands all over the place keeping the vibe going with good music. This is something I haven’t experienced at a beer fest before. There’s generally a DJ or one band, but Brew at the Zoo had a ton so you’d never miss out on the music no matter where you  in the zoo you were.

Zoo Brew 2There were also typical zoo attractions like this zoo employee holding this little snake giving the guests facts and tidbits about the animal. That was a nice touch. It stayed true to the zoo while still being a place for beer lovers to come and try new brews.

Zoo Brew Painting Station

There were also some not so traditional attractions like this painting station. This was so much fun because it kind of felt like those wine and art nights where you and friends can bring a bottle of wine and get your paint on. They hung them up to dry and then you could come back and take them home with you before you left!

Zoo Brew goodbye

Ultimately Brew at the Zoo was typical in the way of the breweries, but so different when it comes to what you can do there. Whether you want to just hang out and listen to music and grab a snack, paint and play games with friends, or get some interesting facts on the animals…this is the beer fest for you!

  1. Howdy very nice site!! Man .. Beautiful .. Amazing .. I’ll bookmark your site and take the feeds also…I’m happy to search out numerous useful information here within the put up, we’d like develop more techniques on this regard, thank you for sharing. . . . . .

  2. naturally like your web site however you have to test the
    spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I to find it very troublesome to tell the truth however I’ll
    surely come again again.

  3. I like the helpful info you provide on your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check once more here regularly.
    I am moderately certain I will be told many new stuff right right here!
    Good luck for the following!

  4. I seriously love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.

    Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own website and would like to know where you got this from or
    what the theme is named. Thanks!

  5. Together with everything that appears to be developing inside this specific area, many of your points of view are generally very radical. However, I appologize, because I can not give credence to your entire suggestion, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to us that your opinions are generally not totally validated and in fact you are your self not thoroughly confident of the argument. In any case I did take pleasure in examining it.

  6. A different issue is really that video gaming became one of the all-time largest forms of excitement for people of nearly every age. Kids have fun with video games, and also adults do, too. The particular XBox 360 is amongst the favorite video games systems for folks who love to have a lot of video games available to them, plus who like to learn live with others all over the world. Thanks for sharing your opinions.

  7. Hey there! I’ve been reading your site for some time now and finally got the bravery
    to go ahead and give you a shout out from Lubbock Texas!
    Just wanted to say keep up the great job!

  8. I have realized some important matters through your website post. One other subject I would like to express is that there are lots of games on the market designed specially for preschool age kids. They involve pattern identification, colors, dogs, and shapes. These typically focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This will keep a child occupied without sensing like they are studying. Thanks

  9. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  10. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  11. Thanks for revealing your ideas. I’d also like to convey that video games have been ever evolving. Modern technology and inventions have made it simpler to create sensible and enjoyable games. These entertainment video games were not that sensible when the actual concept was being tried out. Just like other forms of know-how, video games as well have had to develop by way of many years. This itself is testimony on the fast continuing development of video games.

  12. Nice post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I’m impressed!

    Extremely helpful info specifically the ultimate section 🙂 I care for such information a lot.
    I used to be looking for this certain info for a long time.
    Thanks and good luck.

  14. Thank you for the good writeup. It if truth be told was once a leisure account it.

    Glance complex to far brought agreeable from you!
    By the way, how could we communicate?

  15. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  16. Oh my goodness! an amazing article dude. Thank you However I am experiencing issue with ur rss . Don?t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anyone getting identical rss problem? Anyone who knows kindly respond. Thnkx

  17. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours nowadays,
    yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours.

    It’s pretty value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet will
    likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

  18. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  19. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service? Thank you!

  20. Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this informative article together. I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  21. I happen to be writing to make you know of the remarkable discovery my princess found checking the blog. She mastered such a lot of details, with the inclusion of what it’s like to have a very effective coaching mood to make others very easily know various complicated issues. You really did more than visitors’ expectations. Many thanks for providing those beneficial, trustworthy, educational and as well as cool tips about the topic to Kate.

  22. Excellent items from you, man. I have take into account your stuff previous to and you’re simply extremely magnificent. I really like what you have bought right here, really like what you’re saying and the best way during which you assert it. You make it enjoyable and you continue to take care of to keep it wise. I can’t wait to learn far more from you. That is really a wonderful web site.

  23. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  24. Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve consider your stuff previous to and you are just extremely wonderful. I really like what you’ve bought right here, really like what you’re stating and the best way by which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you continue to take care of to stay it smart. I can’t wait to learn far more from you. That is actually a terrific web site.

  25. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
