Gather your fun-loving friends and head to the Ogden Nature Center for an evening filled with tasty bites, local brews, spirits, bird trivia and games, and live birds. Enjoy drinks from local favorites like Talisman Brewing, New World Distillery, Roosters Brewing Co. and Mountain West Cider, marvel at live animal presentations, and get competitive with a pub-style trivia match! Must be 21 or older to attend.
The event will start with a series of live animal presentations paired with tastes of different beers and spirits. Fancy a sample of a golden hard cider while learning about a Golden Eagle? Or perhaps a sip of gin while you learn about the Western Screech Owl – whooo just so happens to nest in juniper trees. Beehive Cheese and other tasty appetizers will also be on the menu.
Once the samples and animal presentation portion is complete, all four beverage vendors will have open bars where you can purchase glasses of beer and cider for $5 to $8, or cocktails for $10.
The second half of the event is a bird-themed pub-style trivia competition, hosted by local 4-time Jeopardy champion Tim Kutz. Form teams with your friends and loved ones and test your avian knowledge, competing for prize baskets for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
