Walk a little on the wild side next Wednesday at the Racine Zoo’s first Roar and Pour beer tasting to benefit the care of the zoo’s animals.

For $30, attendees can enjoy unlimited samples from Ballast Point Brewing as well as two drink tickets, a commemorative Roar and Pour glass, hors d’oeuvres, and the opportunity to talk with zookeepers.

“We’d like to think of Roar and Pour as our own little Octoberfest right here at the Zoo,” said Beth Heidorn, Racine Zoo Executive Director, in a written release. “What a fun way of getting everyone together for a good time while raising money and awareness for a great cause, the animals.”

Roar and Pour runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Racine Zoo, 200 Gould Street. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at, at the Zoo, and at Timer’s Beverage Center, 3800 Northwestern Avenue.
