Enjoy the twinkling magical wonderland of Zoo Lights—without any kids! Join us for our fifth annual Brew Lights, a Zoo Lights brew festival experience just for the 21-and-over crowd with more than 55 Northwest breweries and cideries to sample from.

Dance to live music from Dance Hall Days, Ian James, DJs, enjoy local food carts, and more.

Brew Lights tickets include a souvenir cup and 10 beverage tastings (3-oz beer/cider) throughout the zoo. Guests can choose from 110 beer, seltzer and cider options from 55 Northwest breweries and cideries while strolling through colorfully-lit trees and dazzling 3-D light sculptures. For grown-ups interested in the lights without the beer sampling, a nondrinker ticket will be available as well.

Festivities begin at 4 p.m. for early entry ticketholders; event general admission begins at 5 p.m. Taps close at 9:30 p.m., with the zoo closing at 10 p.m.
