Starting on Saturday, patrons will be able to enjoy a cold brew when they visit the Zoo.

The Louisville Zoo now has a license to sell beer to visitors, and they can start selling it tomorrow.

Officials have said they may also use the license to sell cocktails at special evening events.

It's a move that Zoo leaders hope will bring in a little extra money, and bring in a different crowd.

They say that the nearby Cincinnati and Columbus zoos have both had a lot of success with beer sales.
