We know most of you have your tickets in hand and are busy planning for an evening of sudsy fun -- ironing your best beer-related T-shirt, making pretzel necklaces, and polishing the beer goggles.
But some of you procrastinators haven't made plans. In case you're on the fence, allow us to give you the top five reasons why you should go to Brew at the Zoo:
5. The Weather
It's been raining all week but (finally) the forecast for tomorrow evening is a cool 67 degrees with only 10 percent chance of rain. You're already getting cabin fever so you owe it to yourself to get out in the fresh air -- beer in hand!
4. The Animals
Unless you've been to India, there's a reasonable chance you've never enjoyed a craft beer so close to tigers before. And in past years, Zoo Miami's own Ron Magill has brought out big cats and giant snakes to say hello. We're not sure what he's taking as his date this year -- but be prepared!
3. The Music
We'll just ask one musical question..."You down with O.P.P.?"...Yeah..we thought so. That's right people...Naughty by Nature, Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell, and Christopher Da'Great and the Pangea Tribe. All live. All for you.
2. The Beer
Over 100 of the world's best beers will be available for your tasting pleasure including some rare finds from Most Wanted Brewery, Brew FIU, Green Flash, and Miami Brewing Company. Check out the Home Brew Alley, featuring The Paul and Young Ron Home Brewers competition winners, Angry Union Brewing. Everyone -- from beer snobs to just fans of a good brew -- will find something they love.
1. The Discount
If you've been waiting to buy tickets, hoping for some kind of mega deal -- here ya go! Voice Daily Deals is offering half-off a four-pack of General Admission tickets. A four pack, regularly $140 -- is now only $70! That means that you and three friends can each enjoy unlimited beer samplings, live music, wild animals, and good weather -- all for $17.50 each. Dude -- that's cheaper than a few beers at the local bar on a Saturday night!
To take advantage of this offer, visit voicedailydeals.com/miami now. But hurry -- because BATZ is tomorrow and a deal like this is limited.
See you at Brew at the Zoo!
