They say the best things must come to an end.  And sadly, Electric Ocean at SeaWorld San Diego will be ending soon, on August 14, 2022.  Make sure you visit there while you still have a chance; click here to check out our SeaWorld San Diego Electric Ocean guide.

But luckily, when one door closes, another opens.  And in this case, the end of Electric Ocean means that SeaWorld San Diego’s Craft Beer Festival will soon begin!

SeaWorld San Diego’s Craft Beer Festival begins on Friday, August 19, 2022.  It then runs on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through Sunday, September 11, 2022.  It also takes place on Labor Day Monday, September 5, 2022.

And this is going to be a great festival.  Especially if you love craft beer.  Because this craft beer festival features over one hundred craft brews!

How to Save Money

There are multiple ways to save money at the Craft Beer Festival at SeaWorld San Diego.

One of these ways is with a Craft Beer Festival Sampler.  It gives you a select number of tastings that you can use at any of the food or beverage menu items at any of the Craft Beer Festival stations.  You have a choice between an 8-tasting sampler or a 12-tasting sampler.

Purchasing the sampler saves you money because the sampler costs less than buying drinks and food individually.  If you end up purchasing eight total drinks and food items during your visit, then you’ll pay more than you would have if you had bought the sampler.

So if you love trying new drinks and foods and you want to save money, then you should buy the sampler.  You can click here to buy the sampler.

Admission to the festival, by the way, is not included in the sampler.  You need general admission to SeaWorld San Diego to attend the Craft Beer Festival.

And that is the other way you can save money.  They have a great end-of-the-summer sale going on right now.  You can save $25 on your ticket plus get an additional day at SeaWorld for free!  This is great if you want another day to explore all these menu items!  Click here to take advantage of this ticket sale.
