I started my brewing journey in Columbia, seemingly decades ago (though I’ve only been alive for three). Though I left three years ago, it will always hold a special place in my memory.
This prodigal beer son will be making a return this Saturday, August 7, for Brew at the Zoo at Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia. The event is from 7 to 9:30 pm and costs $30 for members, $40 for non-members.
I’m helping Thomas Creek pour beer for a shift. Since it is a relatively short event, Thomas Creek will only have bottles on hand, so don’t be disappointed if I can’t make a Midnight Train, BlitzCreek or Grandma’s Pearls without their full compliment of draft beer available.
I hope to see some old friends Saturday night. Come out so I can pour you a beer!
Ummm, the tickets for Designated drivers are $15. Zoo Members are $30, non-members are $40 in advance, $50 the day of the event.
Two years ago, Ingrid and I had difficulty finding places to get the “free, unlimted sodas” that we’d be promised with our (at the time) $10 DD Tix.
I hope that there are also water stations this year, so that (in the immortal words of the Magister), “Every suds cycle is followed by a rinse cycle.”
That sounds like a wonderful setting for an outdoor beer event like this one. Just stay away from some of the monkey pens where they like to fling “things” ;)
Otherwise…sounds great actually. Especially if you can tour the entire zoo with a few great craft brews in hand. Wish I was in the area. But Dallas is far from “in the area”!
