Brew Contest

Friends of the National Zoo is giving away two general admission tickets to Brew at the Zoo 2013! To score these sweet tickets, we want you to put on your creative hats and celebrate what Brew at the Zoo is all about: wildlife and beer!

Here are the details

Create a wildlife or conservation-themed beer name for a special brew generously donated by Port City Brewing Company! Port City Brewing Company will design a special beer tap handle for the brew to commemorate your creative genius and the winner will also win two free tickets to Brew at the Zoo! The name of the beer should incorporate animals we have at the Smithsonian's National Zoo. Check out our National Zoo species list and photos on our Facebook page for inspiration!

We'll debut the newly named Port City Brewing Company beer for the night at Brew at the Zoo! Guests will have the chance to sample the beer that you named and you'll get to have an amazing time on us!

Contest Rules

To enter, tweet your inventive beer name to @FonzNationalZoo using the hashtag #BrewZoo.

You must be 21+ to attend and enter the contest. Contest begins June 7th. On Friday, June 28th the top five names will be revealed on FONZ's Twitter and Facebook page and the public will be asked to vote on their favorite! The winner of the public vote on FONZ’s Facebook and Twitter accounts will be revealed on Friday, July 5th! (Please note if a specific beer name is entered by multiple people, only the first person to enter that name will be considered for the contest.) The winner will be contacted by Twitter's Direct Message and asked for a name to leave the tickets under. The winner may claim their tickets the evening of the event at the will-call desk.
