Residents have a chance to experience the zoo in a new way this weekend.

Friends of the Ellen Trout Zoo will be hosting their annual Zoo Brew event, which will allow guests the chance to see the zoo at night while enjoying some adult beverages.

This year's event has over 80 types of beer and multiple food stations. 

However, what gets people excited every year is the unique craft beers that are served at the event.

"They are different. They are not things that you grew up with," Rebecca West, the event coordinator for Zoo Brew. "They are not things that you can go to every convenience store or grocery store to get. It is a specialty item and people like that." 

The event is Saturday and tickets are $40, and they can be bought at the zoo. But you want to get them early since the tickets are already going fast.

Zoo Brew is scheduled for Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. No one will be admitted after 8:30 p.m.
