Put your drinkin' pants on and get ready to party. The Utica Zoo has announced their annual Brewfest event is back for the summer of 2021.

Back in 2020, Brewfest was canceled due to the pandemic. After discussions between Utica Zoo staff and the event's committee, a date has been set for August 7.

Brewfest is an event that many in the Utica/Rome area attend each year. It generally features over 120 craft beers, ciders, seltzers, and malt beverages, along with wine samples and wine slushies. Along with beverages, many local restaurants set up tables for food samples and attendees get a great experience all while enjoying the sights and sounds the Utica Zoo has to offer.
