Another idea behind the beer list should be showing you all the information you need to know about the beer you’re looking at. The name of the beer, brewery, location, style of beer, abv, size of beer, and price should be apparent. You should know what you are purchasing, who makes it, where it’s from, what style of beer it is, how large is the bottle, and how much is it going to run you. Sounds like a lot of information but without having everything available, you won’t understand what your about to taste.
Moderation is the key here, like it is in everything else we eat, enjoy or look forward to. And next to water, beer is the best thirst quencher ever invented. Fact is, there is ample medical evidence to actually support moderate beer drinking, in order to get the many health benefits of beer. Here is a buy the best beers from Belgium at The Belgian Beer Company.
There has never been a better time for the world of beer than today. The choices you have when it comes to what you want to drink is limitless. This is a renaissance for the beer industry and one where craft beer drinkers help sway what breweries produce. Since the movement of craft beer is grassroots, it’s taken nearly 30 years for beer drinkers to have a choice in what they choose to drink. While choice remains mainly in liquor, wine, and spirit stores, many establishments are opening up that allow beer drinkers to continue to enjoy their craft beer in a public setting.
A beer tasting is an opportunity to sample a wide variety of import and micro-brew beers. Chances are, with all the vendors that usually frequent beer tastings, you’ll have a lot of beer to consume. Unless you happen to be Hank the Tank, you will probably experience the full effects of inebriation. Remember though, a beer tasting is a gathering of gentlemen (and ladies) and your behavior should in turn be gentlemanly. A beer tasting is not the place to whip out your homemade beer-bong and pound an Irish Stout. Save that for another night.
Each carefully crafted box has everything for your wild night, including: three bottles of wine (1 red, 1 white, 1 rose), two 4-packs of beer, two wine glasses featuring the Zoo’s logo, two wine glass lanyards, two individual Zoo passes (good for 2021), and pre-recorded Zoo tour to watch while you sip. Whether it’s for date night or a weekend social-distanced safari with friends, this is one wild night you don’t want to miss. Cost is $200 per party box.
All boxes must be pre-ordered and picked up from the Zoo at the specified time range in your confirmation email.
Please note we are unable to make alcohol substitutions for your box.
