Riverbanks Zoo elephant helps pick ingredients for Conquest’s Brew at the Zoo release

conquest logo_revised

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Columbia’s Conquest Brewing Co. was aided by a Penny, an African elephant, from Columbia’s Riverbanks Zoo, in picking ingredients for a beer that will be exclusively brewed for the zoo’s upcoming Brew at the Zoo beer festival.

To help pick the ingredients for the beer, Conquest’s Joseph Ackerman brought three different types of malt and four different types of fruit. Whichever Penny picked (and ate) first would be used for a new beer being released at the festival on Sunday, Aug. 7.

(Spoiler alert: She was a fan of chocolate malt, Vienna malt, mangos and blackberries.)

Watch a video of the selection process below, and try Penny’s Porter exclusively at the event. Tickets are $35 for zoo members and $45 for the general public and can be purchased here.
