Well, not really, but getting rid of the free beer samples at the hospitality areas in both parks is tantamount to killing at least two kittens. While it has been a while since I’ve been to either park–this happens when you live too close to them–the free beer samples were a nice way to take a break from the screaming kids and other tourons.
I’m guessing that this is part of the A-B/InBev deal and the Busch Entertainment properties are positioning themselves for the inevitable sell-off. Still, I always liked the free beer. At first, I liked it for the obvious reason but then, as I came to appreciate beer more, I liked it because the hospitality areas had information about the beer, the brewing process, and A-B history.
