Try as she might, Mother Nature could not pull the plug on this one.

 

Saturday, August 23rd was marked by torrential downpours, lightning, thunder, humidity, and beer.  Wait…beer?

BatZ 5

Yup.

Brew at the Zoo and Wine, Too was held at the Louisville Zoo, and played host to dozens of craft and national brewers and wine makers as well as local eateries and restaurants.   Despite the ankle-deep mud and frequent rains, attendees laced up their boots, pulled on their ponchos, and drank their weight in craft beer.  While it seemed the bulk of people clustered inside the tents for shelter, there were quite a few ignoring the weather and lounging near the live music stage, amidst the trees in their own chairs, or wandering the area in search of their next pour.  It has become an absolute must-attend event for the Louisville area.
