The moment you've been finally waiting for has arrived: more details regarding the Utica Zoo's largest fundraising event. Brewfest is returning this August for another year of beer, food and fun.

Brewfest is an event that many in the Utica and 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.
