On Monday, the park announced that beginning Tuesday through Aug. 5, visitors can get two free 7-ounce beers from a rotating list of brews. Calling it a return to its roots, the park also unveiled a club for craft beer fans and a new Oktoberfest-themed festival.

Does Williamsburg still do brewery tours? I miss the days when they had a monorail that took you from the park to the brewery...and then offered free samples at the end of the tour.
In other news, Busch Gardens Tampa bringing back me on a trial basis.

Reminds me of a local band in my area in the 90s called Free Beer. Made for some great marketing on clubs' event calendars.
Tonight: Free Beer
Just asking the obvious question here, but are there really any "links" to the beer business, besides the word "Busch" in the park name? I may be missing a step, but didn't the company and family sell off all interests in the parks several years ago?
Is this purely a licensing deal (much like allowing Time Share people into your Vegas casino to assault your patrons)?
I don't even know if it's a licensing thing. Busch Gardens is SeaWorld Entertainment, and that's that. I mean, if they were smart, they'd get some kind of sponsorship or co-marketing deal out of it, I would think.
Well, yeah I know the two are synonymous, and that there's a long "history" tied to the beer company. However, in 2018 there is no such ownership relationship right? Didn't the family take the parks from AB-Inbev, then take the parks public, and as such sold majority of the parks business to Blackstone and then eventually to some Chinese entity that isn't a beer company.
So this is just samples of random beer brands? That's what I'm getting at, I just assumed these were "AB" family brand beers, but it appears to be just simply free effing beer.
I guess taking a cue from the hobo with the vaudeville act in "One Froggy Evening", instead of capital improvements: http://www.intanibase.com/gac/looneytunes/censored-n-o.aspx
SEAS is its own public company. I think it's just free beer. Don't overthink it, just drink it.
