Timbo, the Dallas Zoo's oldest gorilla, died yesterday in surgery at the age of 49, and we're still bummed by the news. Even though we didn't know her personally, we still plan to mourn her the same way we've marked the deaths of friends, family members and celebrities alike: with booze.
Specifically, beer. We'll probably lift a toast to her before then, but we'll definitely have one in her honor next Saturday, September 10, at Brew at the Zoo.
Quick refresher: Tickets are $30 in advance, VIP entrance is $60, and it runs from 7 p.m. (6:30 for VIPs) to 10 p.m. Tickets include zoo admission, a souvenir taster glass and refills at the discretion of the servers -- who probably wouldn't want you to end up stumbling into the crocodile pit.
We already shared the details and the preliminary list of available beers; following is the full list. New additions -- including a few we're quite excited about, like Boulevard's Tank 7 and Dark Truth and New Belgium Belgo IPA -- are marked with asterisks.
