The Philadelphia Zoo welcomes their Beer Garden
Debuting in July 2016, Philadelphia is welcoming a great new addition to the Philadelphia Zoo. There will now be a beer garden! Yay, something for the adults to enjoy! There is no extra cost to enter the beer garden, access is included with the admission price. This event on Thursday July 21st, 2016 was a preview for the zoo’s beer garden, The Watering Hole. It was hosted by Cashman & Associates and sponsored by Victory Brewing Company.
That evening, there were many things to taste off of their light fare menu. Attendees enjoyed a grilled roasted turkey cheddar bacon flatbread with chipotle mayo, a toasted 3 cheese flatbread (cheddar, swiss and provolone), pulled pork sliders, filet sliders (they were very delicious), crudité shooters with wusabi dip (veggies with a spicy creamy dipping sauce), and grilled bratwurst.
To top the evening off, we were served house made ice sandwiches, SO GOOD! They had cookie dough ice cream sandwiches, chocolate chip with vanilla and coconut (my personal favorite) and then there was the mint chocolate.
The Water Hole is a great place for the adults to sit back, enjoy a few drinks and relax for bit. There’s a nice selection of beers, as well as some on tap. And for the individuals who aren’t beer drinkers, there is a small selection of wines available like chardonnay, cabernet and pinot grigio. Check out The Watering Hole. It’ll give you another great reason to visit Philadelphia’s Zoo more often!
