ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - There are no free lunches in life, but one could always count on free beer samples at Anheuser-Busch theme parks. Until now.
The brewer has put the kibosh on the free beer samples at hospitality centers at its SeaWorld theme parks in Orlando, San Antonio and San Diego and its Busch Gardens parks in Tampa and Williamsburg, Va. In their place, the brewer plans to build restaurants, or other food-related venues, which have a broader appeal to children and families, said Fred Jacobs, vice president of communications for Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks.
No word on whether those venues will sell beer.
Jacobs says: "This was something that had pretty narrow appeal. We were looking to expand it into something that had broader appeal."
