BrewLights Member Tickets on Sale Now

  • guests holding light-up tumblers at BrewLights

Every winter, the Smithsonian's National Zoo stays open late and lights up with holiday magic during ZooLights, powered by Pepco. And there's nothing better than a brilliantly lit winter wonderland at the Zoo.

Except beer.

From 6 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 30, join us for BrewLights at ZooLights, a craft beer and microbrew event during the most festive time of year. With your ticket, you get unlimited beer tastings all night, a souvenir light-up tumbler, snack stations, and exclusive access to areas that are usually closed during ZooLights.

Best of all, proceeds benefit the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute's mission to save species.

Tickets are on sale for members right now. Be sure to grab yours before non-members get the opportunity one week from today—Brewlights usually sells out, so don't wait too long!

Not a member? Join today to get your tickets early (and at a $10 discount).
