The event will start with a series of live animal presentations paired with samples of six different beers from local breweries Talisman Brewing and Roosters Brewing Co., and samples 2 spirits from local distillery New World Distillery. Fancy a sample of a red ale while learning about a Red-tailed Hawk? Or perhaps a sip of gin while you learn about the Western Screech owl – whooo just so happens to nest in juniper trees. Even Stevens will be providing a plethora of tasty food for your enjoyment, including 3 different types of sandwiches (meat, vegetarian and vegan options), roasted peppers with ginger & maple glaze, roasted Brussel sprouts with bacon, pretzel breadsticks with house-made beer cheese, and fresh pita and hummus plates.

Once the samples and animal presentation portion is complete, all three beverage vendors will have open bars where you can purchase pints of beer and cocktails for $5 and $8.  The second half of the event is a pub-style, bird-themed trivia competition, hosted by local 4-time Jeopardy champion, Tim Kutz. Form teams with your friends and loved ones and test your avian knowledge, competing for prize baskets for 1st and 2nd place.  

Held in the gorgeous  glen behind the Visitor Center.
