ST. LOUIS — A brew for the zoo.
In an effort to raise awareness and funds for animal conservation, the Saint Louis Zoo is partnering with Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. to release its first official beer.
Every case sold of Grizzly Ridge Kölsch, which will be available at St. Louis-area grocery stores and beer retailers June 22, will include a $3 donation from Urban Chestnut to the zoo in support of its animal care and conservation work.
Jeffrey Bonner, president and CEO of the Saint Louis Zoo, said the collaboration provides more opportunities for the zoo to protect wild animals.
“The zoo’s mission is to care for animals and conserve their habitats through animal management, research, recreation and educational programs to encourage support from and enrich the experience of the public,” Bonner said in a statement. “Our collaboration with Urban Chestnut provides an opportunity for adults to enjoy a refreshing and delicious craft beer while supporting the zoo’s conservation and animal-care efforts.”
