For the second year in a row, the Utica Zoo's Brewfest will feature a beer made specially for the event by Woodland Brewery in Marcy. Here's a sneak preview.

When you visit Woodland's booth at Brewfest on Saturday, you'll be able to sample their newest creation, 'Zoo York State IPA.'

Zoo York State IPA is made with 100% New York State ingredients including malt from New York Craft Malt and Hops from Brandow Farms.

The beer has tastes of pine, wildflowers, and citrus, and is really smooth with a crisp citrus-like finish.

Watch the video above to see how Dave Wheeler, Polly Wogg and myself liked it!

If you're a lover of light, flavorful IPA's make sure you get to the Utica Zoo Brewfest, because that's one of the only places you will be able to find it.

Woodland Brewery only makes a limited amount of the brew for the Zoo, and when it's gone, it's gone.

You'll also be able to sample it at Woodland's Brewery for a limited time if supplies last through Brewfest.
