It's one of the most popular fundraisers that the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park has and it's happening next Saturday, June 16th. It's the 15th annual Zoo Brew & Wine Too that benefits the Binghamton Zoo's conservation efforts.

Many of our local breweries are already involved including my favorite Awestruck Hard Ciders from Sidney. Other breweries and wineries include Galaxy Brewing Company, Binghamton Brewing Company, Brown's Brewing Company, Southern Tier Brewing Company, Lakeland Winery, Sovereign Vines, Victourianbourg Wine Estate, Yellow Barn Winery with more to join in.

There will be other activities including cornhole, ambassador animal meet and greets and more. The event is from 5:30 to 8 p.m. with live music from Double Shot (how appropriate) from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

General admission and designated driver tickets are on sale here. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend and all proceeds from Zoo Brew & Wine Too support the Binghamton Zoo's conservation efforts.

Get your dad an early Father's Day present and enjoy your favorite brews from our region while enjoying a night inside the zoo with the animals. America's 5th Zoo is located at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton

Last year, the Galaxy Brewing Company got together with the Binghamton Zoo and offered a band new craft beer, IPA for Animals. This year, they are launching IPA for Animals 2.0 and $1 from every pint sold at Galaxy Brewing Company will come back to support the Binghamton Zoo too.
