Seaworld Orlando's beer mojo is completely
neutered. It's the same story at Busch
Gardens. The beer scene is a near 100% total
loss. I fail to understand that even as the
Euro biz influence of InBev trashes the
wonderful beer history of Seaworld and Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay they never percieved the
perhaps aging solar flare of craft brewing
that is still growing by most accounts. Why
when even Anheuser is testing a growing list
of specialty drinks would they limit these
parks to this nearly vacant list of brews:
Bud, Bud light, Bud light with lime,
Michelob, Mich. light, Tennants, and
Landshark Lager... I really would only even
try the Tennants and the Landshark out of
the list... But it's so wasted compared to
the FREE tasting area they had when they
would put such acceptable creations as
'Winter's bourbon cask ale', World Select,
and others. I could not find anything other
than the above list of 7 in the whole park.
One employee told me there was a list of 8
beers and they are the only ones being sold
in the park.
Seaworld is a much less inviting place to
Gone is the beer school, special beer
tasings, other beer classes, and all the
prior free tastings they offered. I get it,
charge for the beer; Why take away the
variety. So sad. I only half enjoyed the
park. It's a new Seaworld Neutered of it's
rich brewing history.
As one column mentioned it's got to be a
prep for sale. So they don't have to sell a
park with beer as a focus perhaps. It's so
wierd though as the park highlighted what
A.B. does, and was a perfect venue for them
to test new brews and new ideas. They never
even used it to it's fullest potential.
