Bier Fest at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

Another one of Busch Gardens Tampa’s seasonal events, Bier Fest is an assortment of food and drink recipes from around the world on display along with the local cuisine.

This event also occurs in the summer on select dates and lasts till Labor Day. 

Guests can enjoy the delicious food and wash it down with the drinks available more dominantly than food.

The most recent Bier Fest also features new additions, such as delicacies inspired by German flavors.

You will have to purchase the food and drinks on offer separately.

A variety of beers and meals is available, with over 60 kinds of brews for you to take a sip of. 

Lagers, IPAs, Stouts, Ciders and many more – there is something for everyone’s tastes.

That is not all; for a VIP experience at Bier Fest, you can also purchase the Bier Fest Elite VIP Tour. 

Not only do you get to receive VIP treatment in Bier Fest with this, but you also get front-of-the-line access to three coasters in the park.

If you do not wish to spend money on a VIP Tour, you can still get extra services cheaper if you buy an item sampler or hold a membership pass.
