UTICA, NY – The Utica Zoo’s Brewfest turned 21 Saturday.

Thousands of people flocked to the zoo to celebrate and see all of the changes that are taking place there.

Brewfest is the zoo’s largest fundraiser and offers those 21 and over samples of more than 100 craft beers from around the world.

There were also wine samples as well as hard cider for those who don’t like beer.

“All of the proceeds raised here will benefit the animals.” Said Utica Zoo Marketing Coordinator Mark Simon.

“Things like their food, their vet care, exhibit expansions, and upgrades. Basically caring for the animals in general. We’re so grateful that so many people were able to come out and enjoy Brewfest.”

The Utica Zoo continues to grow after receiving its AZA accreditation, with many new exhibits currently under construction.
