No more free beer at Busch theme parks. Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer, will no longer offer free beer at its theme parks, which include Busch Gardens and SeaWorld, due to the “limited appeal” of free beer.
— Incorrect: Anheuser-Busch Thinks “Free Beer” Has “Pretty Limited Appeal”
The consumerist is of the opinion that they’re wrong about this, but really, it seems like Anheuser-Busch is right on the money.Â If they have a family friendly theme park, why have a section that kids will never see?Â Mind you, I did enjoy the beer the last time I went, but you can never get enough of the ‘free’ beer 😛Favorite This!

I’m trying to remember if it was Busch Gardens (in Florida) that had the hospitality house. Hubby and I enjoyed the beer tasting. Geez it was so long ago. I think they had different nationalities’ beer. Or am I totally off? Family friendly has a different meaning today than it did 2 decades ago. Now, alcohol is not served where it’s likely that there will be a lot of kids. Chuck E Cheese is learning that the hard way.
If you’re talking about the one if Tampa, Florida, yes they did have beer. They even had/have a bottling and distribution plant there. I remember that I couldn’t go into the hospitality section of the hospitality house because of the over 21 requirement, and that my dad made my mother go get him a couple beers, cause they had a 2 free drink limit.
So he had four. What good times.
