John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids (MI) partners with Harmony Hall to celebrate Red Pandas. For the entire month of October the brewery is offering a Red Panda Ale, a malty beer with lots of ginger and – of course – a lovely red coloring.

The ale is a homage to Wyatt, John Ball Zoo’s Red Panda. For every order of the Red Panda Ale he will get a dollar.

On Sunday, October 15 the brewery is also hosting a John Ball Zoo day. On that day 10% of all food purchases and $1 of any and all beers will be donated to John Ball Zoo’s Wildlife Conservation Fund. According to the zoo the guests will also have the chance to win some “unique Zoo prizes”.
