Utica Zoo Brewfest a smash hit for beer lovers of all kinds

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - It was a rain or shine event, but mother nature did hold out for Brewfest at the Utica Zoo, Saturday night.
 
More than 100 beer and food samplings were enjoyed alongside creatures from around the world. 
     
A few local brewers also participated such as Saranac, Ommegang and Johnny Appleseed. 
     
For the more worldly beers, there was Guinness, Carlsburg and many more choices. 
     
There was also live music to top it all off.
 

"It's our largest adult fundraiser," said Gary Mundschenk, Brewfest Chairman. "It's a good opportunity to get people who wouldn't normally come to the Zoo, see it and hopefully come back to visit it."
