ST. LOUIS — This fall, you can drink beers with the bears at the Saint Louis Zoo.

The zoo is hosting Zootoberfest for two weekends in October. The free family-friendly event will feature live entertainment, fall-related kids’ games and crafts and Oktoberfest-related foods.

For the 21-and-up crowd, several German bars will serve a variety of local and national Oktoberfest beers. The specialty beers will be available at beer tents throughout the zoo. To make the experience feel a little more authentic, you can get your drink in a specialty Zootoberfest stein that gets you discounts on refills.

Root beer will be available for the kids.

Festivities run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Live entertainment starts at noon on the following days:

  • Saturday, October 5: Terry Thompson’s Bavarian Stompers
  • Sunday, October 6: Joe Pollach’s St. Louis Express
  • Saturday, October 12: Terry Thompson’s Bavarian Stompers
  • Sunday, October 13: Good Times Polka Band
