Pints and Predators

Join your local wildlife rehabilitation community at First Magnitude Brewing Co. for the 9th Annual Pints and Predators educational festival and fundraiser featuring live birds of prey, creatures of the night, and more!

Wildlife rehabilitators do the hard work of rescuing sick and injured wildlife. Many of those birds and other animals live through their trauma but are not healthy enough to be released back into natural environments and become educational ambassadors that rehabilitators and educators care for indefinitely. Pints and Predators is an opportunity for you to see ambassador birds of prey like Bald Eagle, Barred Owl, Red-tailed Hawk, and creatures of the night like Virginia Opossum and bats. There are always a few snakes including a venomous rattlesnake in a fully-locked safety enclosure and, for the second year in a row, a spider exhibit!

All proceeds from the event benefit participating wildlife organizations, and 18 taps of beer, 2 wines, 2 ciders, and some non-alcoholic options at the bar will be offered throughout the night for guests to enjoy! Check out First Magnitude’s Facebook Page for more information about the event!
