If you are a fan of Pilsners, Pilsner Lagers, Dark Lagers, German Bocks, Brown Ales, Pale Ales, India Pale Ales, Porters, Stouts, Belgian-style ale, Wheat Beer, Wild and sour Ale, or Specialty Beers… listen closely. The Craft Beer Festival is making a triumphant return to SeaWorld Orlando, offering guests access to more than 100 craft brews in a modified, limited-capacity setting.

Side note, if that first paragraph didn’t make you thirsty, I don’t know what will, my friend.

Guests are encouraged to sample a wide variety of domestic and local Florida brews, besides a bevvy of food items paired with their preferred beverages. In short, if you’re a foodie who adores craft beer… welcome to heaven!

Capacity for the festival will be considerably limited to help generate open space and maintain proper social distancing guidelines.

Additional safety measures include modified food and beverage serving procedures, expanded seating areas, touchless transactions at all festival locations, and spaced-out food and beverage locations.

Guests will be invited to sample and save by purchasing a Craft Beer Festival Tasting Lanyard valid at 18 stations located throughout the park.

“We couldn’t be happiest to host our annual Craft Beer Festival, modified to reflect enhanced health and safety protocols, including limited capacity, to give guests the chance to delight their senses,” said Kyle Miller, park president of SeaWorld Orlando. “By spreading the festival booths out across the entire park, guests can safely enjoy all of the amazing beer and beer-inspired food, along with our award-winning attractions, while maintaining proper physical distancing.”

All guests with existing tickets, Fun Cards, or Annual Passes must make a reservation to visit in advance in order to manage park capacity and maintain physical distancing. Requiring reservations allows the park to limit the number of guests on the property each day, further enhancing the park’s vigorous safety protocols. We strongly encourage you to make your reservations as early as possible.
