Brew at the Zoo is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

And instead of four beer tastings this year, the Akron Zoo will host five: June 22, July 20, Sept. 7, Oct. 5 and Dec. 12. The Sept. 7 date was added.

"We talked about how to make this year special," zoo spokeswoman Elena Bell said. "These are always well-attended events and we decided it'd be a good addition for our calendar."

The events attract anywhere from 800 to 1,000 people.

The June 22 tasting will showcase 16 breweries — the most ever for the event, Bell said. The participating breweries are: Bookhouse, Canton, Hoppin' Frog, Ignite, JAFB, Lock 15, Maize Valley, Missing Falls, Mucky Duck, Paradigm Shift, Platform, R. Shea, Sandy Springs, Shale, Two Monks and Thirsty Dog. The tasting also will feature The Cookery Food Truck, Pierogi Joe's, A Twist of Leona and EntIcing Cakes.

The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., with special VIP tickets allowing early admission at 6 p.m. Tickets are $27 for zoo members and $33 for non-members. VIP tickets are $50 and $40.
