The public relations folks at Sea World Orlando have been nice enough to share with us the names of the beers they will be serving at this year's Band's, Brew's, and BBQ. This year's festivities will run on Saturdays and Sundays from February 9th to March 17th. Hall and Oates fans who enjoy good beer will be beside themselves when they get a look at this year's lineup of both bands and beers!
Local folks familiar with Orlando's craft beer scene will likely note that pretty much all of the beers on this list are distributed by Orlando's City Beverage. Orlando Beer Guide friend Gerard Walen pointed out a similar occurance a couple weeks back in his blog discussing the beers being served at the same event that will take place at Tampa's Busch Gardens.
You can check out the Sea World website for additional details on the list of bands who will be performing as well as the different packages available to get some food and drink some beers! American craft beer selection for Bands, Brew, and BBQ is listed below. Cheers!
