Lincoln Park Zoo hosts BrewLights

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Try some great beers and help the Lincoln Park Zoo on Dec. 2 as part of the 2nd Annual BrewLights. The one-night event offers a tasting of a dozen different beers.

Adults 21 and older are invited to join the holiday fun by visiting animal exhibits illuminated by the 2 million holiday lights on display, while sipping on beer samples on tap throughout the zoo.

Tickets for BrewLights are $50. The money raised helps keep the Lincoln Park Zoo free and open to the public year-round. In 2014, BrewLights raised more than $114,000.

Eric Kobus, with Louis Glunz Beer, Inc., joined ABC7 live from the Lincoln Park Zoo to give us a small taste of BrewLights.
