Beer Info
The beer selections changed a bit from day-to-day at last year's festival, and we suspect the same thing will happen at this year's festival. So rather than publish a specific list of beers available, Busch Gardens has provided us with a list of Breweries, and those Breweries can then feature whatever they would like to at the festival!

Last year there was a giant board at the start of the festival area that listed all the beers for that day and at which booths they were at. Because selections can change quickly… be sure to check out the board first when you enter the festival area, if you're searching for something specific.
