Set inside the zoo after hours, this popular beer tasting festival uniquely showcases over forty of Michigan’s finest craft microbreweries (ciders, meads and wines, too). Event–goers will enjoy a menu of “beer-centric” small bite food pairings included in the ticket price. As part of the admission price, each guest receives a souvenir Bonteboktoberfest tasting glass, 12 drink tickets and “small bite” food pairings. Additional drink vouchers are available for purchase if your glass runs dry as well as food truck menu choices for the bigger appetites.
Bonteboktoberfest is a fundraising event named for the bontebok, a rare species of antelope found in the Western Cape Area of South Africa and in Wild Africa at Binder Park Zoo. The bontebok is a Species Survival Plan (SSP) animal through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Proceeds from Bonteboktoberfest help support zoo operations. Binder Park Zoo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that receives no tax funding.
