Beer Returns to Busch Gardens

Starting today, Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay puts beer back on its menu of adventure.

Tampa Bay's hometown theme park is opening its Brew Club and, from today through August 5, restoring the decades-long tradition of two complimentary beer samples at the Garden Gate Cafe (formerly the Hospitality House). Every two weeks, the park will feature different brands of beer, starting with Corona to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Also on the rotation over the summer will be Bud Light, Founders All Day IPA, M.I.A. 305, Miller Light, Shock Top, and Yuengling.

Serious beer lovers can job the Busch Gardens Brew Club, reserving a stein in their name and receiving $5 refills from more than 20 beers that will be on tap all year.

Busch Gardens will launch its first Bier Fest, running August 25 through September 16, featuring 100 beers from around the world along with German food and music. Bier Fest admission will be included with entrance to the park.
