But the 2011 gathering will definitely be bigger than last year's. Fifty-eight tents will serve beer, up from 30 last year. And Otis Day & the Knights will perform, as well as opener the Blues Brothers. And if that isn't enough, 14th Street corridor icon Notorious Nastie will play host to the drunken (remember to get a designated driver) crowd.
In fact, Nastie has concocted a video teasing Brew at the Zoo, where he channels John Belushi inviting you to the event. Tickets are still available -- $30 for general admission and $70 for VIP. For more information, visit newtimesbrewatthezoo.com.
