As dusk set in, animals at the zoo began to retire for the night. Gorillas climbed into their grass beds, vultures perched on their roosts. Meanwhile, another breed of animals began to migrate around the entrance of the zoo to willingly be taken into the confines of captivity. The "Party Animal" or Drinksalota Brewskis is a common species that imbibes in plentiful drink.
Miami New Times Second Annual Brew at the Zoo was an enormous event. Thousands of guests poured through the gates to sample a variety of beers. B.R.E.W. FIU definitely showed up to the event. Our line up included a vienna lager, 2 irish red ales, Single Malt and Single Hop, peanut butter chocolate stout, brown ale, IPA20, and an oak aged golden ale. Our crowd pleaser
had to be the hoppy wheat beer in which we ran through a Randall stuffed to the top withamarillo hops. This infused a fresh hop aroma in the final product.
All in all, the 2nd annual Brew at the Zoo was a huge success. Much to our surprise we ran through 45 gallons of homebrewed craft ales within 2 hours! We plan on brewing more beer next year to hopefully quench the masses. One problem that faces the Drinksalota Brewskis is waking up the next morning.
