Try some of our favorite Craft Beer Festival brew and chew pairings.
ICYMI: SeaWorld Orlando's Craft Beer Festival has been extended, now happening every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through November 1. That gives you even more time to enjoy our selection of over 100 local and domestic craft beers, 20 unique food flavors, and countless other wines, cocktails, and beverages. Florida "sweater weather" is here, and there is no better way to enjoy the cool(er) air than with a visit to Orlando's premier beer, food and wine festival.

Do you know what goes great with an ice-cold brew? An expertly paired “chew!” Here are our top three pairing recommendations, straight from the culinary masterminds at SeaWorld.

That takes care of your taste buds, but your safety is still our top priority. In addition to our already-enhanced health and safety measures, SeaWorld’s Craft Beer Festival will feature food and beverage festival locations appropriately spaced throughout the park, modified serving procedures, expanded areas of seating and high-top tables, and the ability to make touchless transactions at all festival locations. You can learn more about our enhanced health and safety measures here.

Our Craft Beer Festival runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through November 1. The best way to experience all the flavors this year is with a Craft Beer Festival Sampling Lanyard. Not only is it convenient, but it can also end up saving you a lot of money! Pass Members can save up to 20% on sampling lanyards by logging into their accounts to purchase.

We hope to see you out at the Craft Beer Festival this year. Be sure to stay in the loop on everything happening at SeaWorld Orlando by following us on FacebookInstagram, and right here on the SeaWorld Orlando Blog.
