Have you ever been walking around the zoo and thought to yourself, ‘I could really use a drink’? If you have, then this is just the event for you!

Niabi Zoo is hosting their annual Pints for Preservation this Friday Aug 25 from 6-10 p.m. This fundraiser will help benefit the expansion of current exhibits and addition of new exhibits.

Drink stations will be available for participants to discover new beers and wines. There will be samples from Lionstone Brewery, Front Street Brewery, Geneseo Brewing Co, Goose Island, Great River Brewery and much much more! Food stations will be provided by Granite City, Hy-Vee and City Limits. You can also enjoy some live music while you are exploring the zoo at night!
