Brew at The Zoo

A memorable Memorial Day weekend certainly starts with drinking beers alongside lions and tigers and bears, oh my.

General admission tickets will grant you access to unlimited beer and alcohol (be responsible, though!), a commemorative tasting glass, animal demonstration and more. Upgrade to a VIP ticket and gain access to an exclusive preview party, a special animal encounter, an air conditioned VIP lounge and more.

Tickets range from $45-100 and will sell out, so get them now while you still can.


National Brisket Day

Sunday, May 28 | 1pm | Gate City Brewing

Nothing brings a community together quite like brisket. On National Brisket Day (and how amazing that we live in a country where National Brisket Day is a thing!) join Carne250 and Gate City Brewing for Texicana barbecue and some good ol’ Georgia craft beer.

There will be a limited number of whole briskets available to go, weighing in at around 7 lbs. and enough to feed 12-16 people. Whole briskets come with a brewery tour and a complimentary 6-pack. On-premise tickets will get you a delicious brisket sandwich: a 1/2 lb. of sliced barbecue brisket with ancho-slaw, pickled jalapeños, and barbecue sauce on a Brioche bun, as well as six 6 oz. tastes of Gate City beers.

On-premise tickets go for $27 and the Whole Brisket tickets are $125. Buy yours online.
