Published: July 25, 2008 at 11:29 AMI had to vote for the free beer because that was my Dad's favorite thing about going to the original Busch Gardens in Van Nuys Ca. and what he talked about after going to Sea World with my mom a few years ago. I was too young for the beer, but I got all of the 7-UP I could handle.
Published: July 25, 2008 at 2:11 PMAhhh yes, free beer! I am nowhere near being an alcoholic but the sight of free beer is still a sight for sore eyes...especially on a hot, humid florida summer afternoon. I can take comfort in the fact that if I had a Busch/Seaworld annual pass and I go on a day when I am so broke that i couldnt even afford a bottle of water, I can always get those 2 cups of cold beer for FREE *tear*
Published: July 25, 2008 at 2:17 PMFree Beer is the best. We go back several times a day. Get a beer, go on rides, get a beer, go on rides, and so on…….
We were never told only two per day. If you stay right in the hospitality area they will only give you two or so… But if you leave walk around ride\see attractions, return every hour or so, you will not get drunk and have many nice free cold beer’s….
Published: July 25, 2008 at 2:30 PMThese would be my #1 and #2 actually, but in the end I went with the free beer. While I generally dislike most Anheuser Busch beers, (And generally speaking all Miller/Bud/Coors Macro produced swill) after a long day at the park - Nothing beats being able to belly up to a bar, and getting two *FREE* refreshing beers. At the parks they even sometimes offer some acceptable selections with their Bare Knuckle Stout and Skipjack. Nothing I'd drink on my own at home, but for an amusement park? Wonderful.
Only sad thing is that the Ribs may go down in the first round, and they are easily my favourite Theme Park "Food."

Published: July 26, 2008 at 6:38 AMTo everyone who is not a fan of Busch Brands.
Go do beer school, see what Busch actually make, under "Micro Brewery Names" and other labels.
Landshark is Busch, Rolling Rock even. Don't underestimate what they put out there. You may not be fans of Budweiser, Bud Lite, Bud Select etc etc, but see what else they offer before you call it Horsepee.
So my vote obviously goes for free beer.
Try the Wild Bluee when you get the chance, along with the Shock Top, Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm!
Published: July 26, 2008 at 10:23 AMI am not a fan of beer and those ribs are hard to beat. I am kicking myself now Robert. I should have submitted the "Pot Pie Ya-Ya" from Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen at DLR. It is amazing and last night I was spent an hour describing the ambiance to my mother. She couldn't get how excited I was over a restaurant and food.
Published: July 26, 2008 at 7:10 PMI have to go with the ribs. Besides how did the free beer get into this contest? The beer is not exclusive to just the theme parks, it is out in stores so it should not even be in the contest.
