We have more offerings this year than ever before at SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival! With over 200 mouthwatering options including 75+ craft brews, 50+ unique eats, and 75+ wines and spirits, it can be difficult to choose what to try first. But craft beer fans can rejoice, because we're bringing you a local brew guide to Seven Seas. Whether you're a fan of lagers, sours, or IPAs, we have something for you to enjoy. Follow along as we highlight just a few of the great local Florida breweries featured around the park.

First up on the list is Ivanhoe Park Brewing Company, a local brewery found here in Orlando and featured at Hut 9 by our lakeside. If you’re a fan of sours and IPAs, this is a stop for you. Ivanhoe Park Guavacation (sour/Berliner) is a cloudy spur beer with low bitterness and great vibrant tart colorations (and makes a perfect picture for "the Gram," as you can see below). We're also featuring the Ivanhoe Park Joyland IPA, which is a well-balanced American IPA with a dry finish and ample bitterness.

Next up are Crooked Can Brewing Company and Motorworks Brewing Company. Both of these Central Florida breweries offer great beer selections, and they're located at a brand-new feature for this year's festival: an open-air beer garden perfect for enjoying a refreshing brew outside in the Florida sunshine.

Speaking of sunshine, one of the featured brews from Crooked Can is its Florida Sunshine Lager. This is a clean, crisp, all-pilsen malt lager with a soft bread malt profile and a faint hop bitterness to create a perfect balance. For IPA fans, we're also featuring the Crooked Can High Stepper IPA (American IPA), which is a citrus-forward, multiple-hop ale with a nice, clean finish.

Now it’s time to try one of the offerings from Motorworks Brewing Company, including a lager, an American IPA, and a red ale. The Adoptable Lager is sure to win over your heart and taste buds with its crisp, refreshing taste. If you're looking for bold flavors, you'll want to try the Pulp Friction (American IPA), a grapefruit IPA that boasts a massive, freshly squeezed grapefruit aroma. Last but not least is the Rollcage (red ale), a strong yet balanced ale with caramel hints to create a nice, dry finish.

With 75+ great brew options to choose from at this year's festival, these only scratch the surface. As always, we recommend grabbing a sampling lanyard here so you can try any combination of unique food and drink samples from any of our Seven Seas Food Festival locations.

We have gone to great lengths to make your visit a safe one, including 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.
