Oglebay Good Zoo to Host 10th Annual Good Zoo Brew

IPAs, porters, and ales — oh my! Sample more than 50 unique, finely crafted brews and other adult beverages at Good Zoo Brew — the Ohio Valley’s largest microbrew festival — from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at Oglebay’s Good Zoo.

Cuisine from a variety of local restaurants including Ye Olde Alpha, Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers & Beer, Texas Roadhouse, Eat ’n Park, and Route 88 BBQ & Brew will be available.

Guests are also invited to ride the Good Zoo railroad, stroll through several animal exhibits and interact with animal ambassadors. Live entertainment will be provided by Bridges, featuring Kim Butler, Doug Pettit and Dave Pettit, who will entertain guests with classic rock hits from the Beatles, the Eagles, Van Morrison, the Zac Brown Band and more. New Age Adenas will also take the stage, performing an eclectic mix rooted in folk, bluegrass and old-time country through the three-part harmonies of Eric Wellman, Mary Blake and Greg Pawlack.

“We are excited to host our 10th annual Good Zoo Brew,” said Dr. Joe Greathouse, Good Zoo director. “As one of our largest annual fundraisers, Good Zoo Brew allows adults to enjoy their zoo in a new way, while also supporting the care and conservation of the animals they visit throughout the year.”
