It’s no secret to anyone who reads this blog that I love festivals at SeaWorld Orlando.  So I am excited for the next one that is on the schedule.  And that is the Craft Beer Festival!

I really love this festival, and for a lot of reasons.  First of all, what is neat about this festival is that it goes on at the same time as another popular SeaWorld festival.  And that is Electric Ocean, SeaWorld’s summer festival.

See, the Craft Beer Festival takes place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in August and Labor Day Weekend (including Monday that weekend, or Labor Day).  It starts on August 5th and runs through September 5th, 2022.  Electric Ocean also runs through September 5th.  So you can enjoy two festivals at once!  For more information about Electric Ocean, see our Electric Ocean Guide.

But the festival is also great because of the drinks and foods they serve.  Now, with the name Craft Beer Festival, I am sure you expected them to serve great drinks.  And they do.  In fact, they have over 100 imported and local Florida favorite beers!

But did you know they also have a special menu including food?  You’d be impressed with all the great recipes that include beer!  My family had a lot of fun making a meal out of food we got there last year.  We enjoyed sitting outside, looking out at the water, and relaxing while eating and drinking.

Speaking of last year’s festival, you can see it for yourself in our video.

Now, they often change up their menus.  But it looks like there’s a good one this year, too.  I’ll go over what’s on the menu.  And then, as always, I’ll tell you how you can save some money!

How to Save Money

So now, as promised, let me tell you how you can save money here!

One way is with the Craft Beer Festival Sampling Lanyard.  This is a great purchase if you are going to try multiple drinks here.  And with so many drinks to try, I am sure you will want to!

If you buy a Craft Beer Festival Sampling Lanyard, then you can save money.  You can buy either an 8-sample lanyard or a 12-lanyard sample.  And will save you money as opposed to buying 8 or 12 drinks individually.  Click here to get started purchasing one of these lanyards.

The other way you can save money is with admission tickets yourself.  Now, luckily, the SeaWorld Orlando Craft Beer Festival is not a separate ticket item like Howl-O-Scream is.  So admission to the event is included in the cost of your ticket, just like it is with Electric Ocean.

This means you can visit for free any day of the event if you have an annual pass (unless you have a Bronze Pass, and then September 3rd is a blackout date).  We talk about the benefits of getting an annual pass here.

This also means you can visit for free if you have a 2022 Fun Card, except for August 6th and September 3rd (those are blackout dates).  Click here to get a fun card.

And you can go if you buy a general admission ticket.  And now is the time to buy a ticket.  They are currently having a great BOGO sale.  If you buy one ticket, you get another ticket 50% off!  Click here to take advantage of this great sale.
