BREWLIGHTS IS BACK: LOUIS GLUNZ BEER, INC. AND LINCOLN PARK ZOO PARTNER UP FOR THE FOURTH ANNUAL EVENT
Since the inaugural BrewLights in 2014, the Chicagoland distributor and Lincoln Park Zoo have raised over $450,000 to keep the zoo free and open to the public
(Lincolnwood, IL; August XX, 2017)— Louis Glunz Beer, Inc., Chicagoland’s premier craft and specialty import beer distributor, presents the fourth annual BrewLights in collaboration with Lincoln Park Zoo’s Auxiliary Board. On December 7 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., attendees can support Chicago’s free zoo with a craft brew in hand, while more than 2.5 million lights dance from illuminated animal exhibits. Guests are encouraged to explore the expanse of the Lincoln Park Zoo, and make their way through 12 local craft, seasonal and import beers, located at eight stations throughout the zoo’s grounds. All proceeds from the fourth annual event go towards the Auxiliary Board’s commitment to support Lincoln Park Zoo’s The Pride of Chicago campaign.
The light behind BrewLights, Glunz Director of Marketing Jennifer Faulk, holds a special place in her heart for the event, which was created out of the company’s desire to give back, “Our family has a deep connection to Chicagoland and the surrounding communities. The zoo has been so gracious in allowing us to use this platform as a way to raise money for the Auxiliary Board, and also let beer enthusiasts revel in a newfound tradition.”
BrewLights features a dozen local craft, seasonal, and international beers distributed by Louis Glunz Beer, Inc. on tap throughout the zoo. This year’s all-star lineup includes: Begyle Brewing Company, Brauerei Hirt, Breckenridge Brewery, Brouwerij Huyghe, Noon Whistle Brewing, Saugatuck Brewing Company, Stiegl Brewery, Temperance Beer Co., Unibroue, Baderbräu, Hofbräu, and new to the list, cider from Pacific Coast Cider.
After the most successful BrewLights yet in 2016, Louis Glunz Beer, Inc. and Lincoln Park Zoo look forward to continuing their partnership to help support the Chicago landmark zoo. Additional sponsors of the event include the participating breweries, Aurelio’s Pizza, and WGN Radio. BrewLights is a ticketed event exclusively for guests 21 years and older. Tickets start at $40 and can be purchased online. For those not looking to imbibe, designated driver tickets are also available for $20.
