DryHop/Lincoln Park Zoo 2nd Beer Collaboration Release Party – 5/13
April 29, 2015
The second consecutive DryHop Brewers/Lincoln Park Zoo beer collaboration publicly debuts Wednesday, May 13 at 6pm with the release of “Take Me To Your Lemur” a 5.5% Cantaloupe & Clementine Wit. In 2014, we brewed a Red Saison to support the Red Panda Wish List Fund.
This year, $1 from each pint sold will go toward the Lincoln Park Zoo’s Crowned Lemur Wish List Fund.
“Take Me To Your Lemur” is inspired by ingredients from the crowned lemur’s diet and will help purchase essential enrichment items, including foraging feeders, hammocks, and boomer balls, which all help keep the lemurs engaged, active, and healthy on a daily basis.
According to Lincoln Park Zoo’s Curator of Primates Maureen Leahy, “Lemurs are not as destructive as some other primate species, so enrichment items purchased with DryHop’s generous donation to the Wish List Fund should last for many years.”
Stop by the brewhouse and chat with Head Brewer Brant Dubovick to learn more about the beer. His sister, Veterinarian and Lemur Expert Tracy Wynder, will also be available to answer questions about the lemur based on her experience living in Madagascar. Lincoln Park Zoo Zookeepers will be free to discuss the Zoo’s crowned lemurs as well.
