In this week's "98 Seconds" video, Naomi Lynn features a special brew Woodland Farm Brewery has made just for "Brewfest" at the Utica Zoo.

This is the second year in a row that Woodland Farm Brewery has created a special beer just for "Brewfest." This year's beer is called "Zoo York State IPA," and has a piney taste with a hint of wildflowers and citrus. The really cool thing about this delicious adult beverage? Well, 100% of the ingredients are sourced from right here in New York. Be a little more careful with this craft beer though, it has 6% Alcohol By Volume.

Of course if we're going to be talking about this new "Zoo York State IPA," we had to have a little sample. So what did Naomi Lynn think of it? You can watch the video at the top of this page and find out.

Again, "Zoo York State IPA" will be available for sampling at the Utica Zoo's Brewfest, which is this Saturday (August 5th) from 6pm - 9pm. Tickets are still available for this event. They are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Your ticket includes admission into the zoo (so you can wander around and check out all the animals while sampling your beer, wine, ciders, and other adult drinks), live music, food, and of course all the sampling you can handle for 3 hours.

If you can't make it out to Brewfest this weekend, "Zoo York State IPA" will be available on tap at Woodland Farm Brewery in Marcy for a limited time. And when we say "limited time," we mean it. They only created 10 barrels of this special brew (which is about 300 gallons). Now, that may sound like a lot, but trust us, it will go fast.
