Having a Great Time at SeaWorld Orlando’s Craft Beer Festival
Offering over 100 craft beers and some of the best festival food in Orlando, we were so grateful to be invited out by SeaWorld Orlando to try some of the offerings and show you what fun you can have during the summer time happenings here at SeaWorld Orlando. The fun is brewing Fridays, Saturdays, & Sundays, plus Labor Day, August 13 – September 12 only at SeaWorld.
Now if you follow my channel, you know that I am an IPA kind’a guy. Beer is my thing and I was super excited to be able to try out some of the mind boggling selections here at the Craft Beer Festival. As I mentioned, there is over 100 different 100 crafts brews, wines, seltzers, and cocktails from local and Florida breweries and honestly, this could absolutely become a multi-weekend journey and I would highly recommend it.
First off, I went for the “Tupac Shaporter” from Ivanhoe Park Brewery right here in Orlando, Florida. I feel in love with this award winning, dark brew and if you like rich, dark beers, this is one I would definitely recommend. We were hosted during the event and told about some of the newest offerings as well as being able to sample some of the food.
Now let me say this. If you are not a drinker of adult beverages, do not think that this festival is not for you. The food that we had here was the best festival food that we have had anywhere in Orlando (sorry EPCOT). So, after hearing about all the cool things, meeting some friends that were also at the event and trying out some samples, we were ready to hit the park.
With our lanyards ready to be punched, we checked out some of the booths to see what kind of food offerings there were. Again, if you know your boy’ when I spotted the Smoked Brisket Macaroni and Cheese, we had to try it. I give it a 100%. Of course, it was incredibly hot, and not only was the stream trying to survive the heat, so were we. But despite that, it was still delicious. Alessa went for the Beer Battered Popcorn Rock Shrimp and Stout Glazed Tuna Lollipops where I went for the HoneyRacha Buttermilk Fried Chicken, which I have to say was some of the best quick service chicken I have had in a long time!!. We also had the Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and they were very good!! Be sure and check out my highlight story at Spokesmayne on Instagram to see a close up look at all the fun we had.
After all that great food, which was a tad spicy on some, along with the heat, it was time for us to grab another drink. We chose the Jack Daniels (Honey) Jack and Coke which also came in a souvenir cup and was only one hole punch on our lanyard! Now that was a great deal!
Don’t forget, besides the Craft Beer Fest going on, which you can check out with your regular park admission, there is all of the things that you love about SeaWorld Orlando plus more. We took a break from beer for a bit to wander through Sesame Street and say hello to the Cookie Monster and Elmo at the meet and greets. Although there is still social distancing with your favorite characters, we were still able to have a great conversation and take pictures. Our favorite roller coasters were amazing and I still believe that SeaWorld and Busch Gardens are the best theme parks when it comes to the most amazing variety of roller coasters. Along with Shamu, the dolphins, our dapper dressed friends in the Penguin Encounter, beautiful baluga whales and even the pink beauties at the flamingo area, there is so much to see during your visit.
On top of all of the above, Electric Ocean is still going on at SeaWorld Orlando through September 6th, offering a spectacular, exotic worlds of light and music. With this weekend only event, playful, glowing sea creatures and world-class DJs for a family-friendly dance party beneath the waves. Then end the night with Ignite, a fireworks and fountains spectacular that brings the brilliance of the sea to the sky above.
We had a wonderful time at the event and would highly recommend you making SeaWorld Orlando a must do stop during your vacation or if you are a local, a great daytime or nighttime adventure.
