SeaWorld Orlando offers free beer this summer

Free beer is back at SeaWorld Orlando.

The summertime promotion has rules and limitations, of course.

Visitors receive one complimentary 7-ounce beer per visit, served from 10:30 a.m. until one hour before closing time daily at the theme park’s Waterway Grill Bar. The taps will rotate. Among the featured breweries will be Anheuser-Busch InBev, Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co., JDUBS Brewery and Sweet Water Cove.

Participants must be at least 21 years old.

The party’s over Aug. 4.

“It’s a fan favorite and a core part of our park and our history,” Kyle Miller, president of SeaWorld Orlando, said in a news release. The park was owned by Anheuser-Busch Cos. from 1989 to 2009, and brew giveaways were common, particularly in the now-closed Hospitality Center.

The summer’s promotion overlaps with SeaWorld’s Electric Ocean festivities, which are held on select dates through Sept. 5. The park’s Craft Beer Festival runs Aug. 5-Sept. 5.
