— What could make a theme park trip more fun? How about free beer this summer!

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in Florida announced Monday that the park, originally owned by Anheuser-Busch, will get back to its roots by offering complimentary beer from May 1 through Aug. 5.

According to a press release on the park’s website, all park goers over age 21 can visit the Garden Gate Café to receive two complimentary 7 oz. beers during every visit.

Every two weeks, a new featured beer brand will be highlighted, park officials said.

Unfortunately, beer lovers in North Carolina will have to make the longer journey to Florida to enjoy the offer, as park officials for Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va. have not announced a similar promotion.

Parks in both states previously offered free beer for guests, but the promotion ended in 2009.
