Busch Gardens Williamsburg will once again offer a cold, complimentary brew to Members and Annual Pass Holders who visit from June 17-August 14, 2022, as part of the Summer Celebration event.

Guests ages 21 and up can enjoy one complimentary seven-ounce Bud Light beer each time they visit the park, and add a second beer for 50 cents.

The Ireland village area of the park will offer the free and discounted drafts.

“We are eager to offer our Members and Annual Pass Holders complimentary beer this summer at Busch Gardens,” said Kevin Lembke, president of Busch Gardens Williamsburg. “This reward is a fan-favorite, and after listening to our Member’s feedback, we couldn’t wait to bring back free beer this year. Additionally, we are thrilled to extend the excitement by offering discounted drafts for all our guests [ages 21 and up] to enjoy.”

Sip on a free brew while experiencing the park’s Summer Celebration event, including headliner concerts every Saturday, daily “America’s Got Talent” performers, and the Summer Celebration Fireworks Spectacular each Friday-Sunday, then try the park’s new multi-launch coaster, Pantheon.

Busch Gardens Tampa will also offer a complimentary beer, now through August 7, 2022.

SeaWorld San Antonio’s free beer offer for Season and Annual Pass Members begins today, June 9, 2022, as part of the Electric Ocean celebration. A complimentary Yuengling, Blue Moon, Shiner Sea Salt & Lime, or East Cider Blood Orange beverage will be offered to visitors ages 21+ when they visit the Lone Star Lakeside Bar, now through August 7, 2022.

“The summer is going to be a hot one,” said Byron Surrett, president of SeaWorld. “Allowing our pass members to have a cold and refreshing brew on us while enjoying all of the other fantastic attractions that SeaWorld has to offer is a way of expressing our gratitude for being loyal supporters of our park, its conservation and rescue initiatives, and its events.”

SeaWorld Orlando gets in on the act, too, with rotating domestic and seasonal tap beers at the Waterway Grill Bar. All guests ages 21 and up can enjoy one free seven-ounce pour each day they visit, now through August 4, 2022, starting at 10:30 a.m. and running until one hour before the park closes.

Among the featured breweries are Anheuser-Busch InBev, Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co., JDUBS Brewery, and Sweet Water Cove.

Kyle Miller, SeaWorld Orlando park president, said of the perk, “It’s a fan favorite and a core part of our park and our history.”
