Crosstown Brewing Company’s Hop for Hippos Event!

Crosstown Brewing Company is partnering with the Memphis Zoo for a special event that combines great beer, live music, and a worthy cause! Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 22nd, from 3 to 9 PM, and join them for “Hops for Hippos,” an exciting fundraiser to support the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) and their mission to provide exceptional care for zoo animals.

A Fundraiser for a Great Cause

The Memphis Zoo’s dedicated keepers are always looking for innovative ways to enhance the lives of the animals in their care, and this fundraiser is a fantastic opportunity to support their efforts. The event will feature a silent auction with unique items, including one-of-a-kind art pieces painted by the zoo animals themselves on Crosstown Brewing Company glassware. This is a rare chance to own a piece of art created by some of the zoo’s most talented residents!

Enjoy Live Music by Bryan Hartley

Adding to the festivities, local musician Bryan Hartley will be performing live throughout the event. Bryan’s soulful tunes and engaging performance style are sure to create a lively and enjoyable atmosphere. Whether you’re a fan of live music or just looking to relax with friends, Bryan’s set will provide the perfect backdrop to your afternoon and evening.
