Last weekend was the kickoff of Bier Fest at Busch Gardens Tampa. Steve and Jen were on site to try all the tasty drinks and food which all looks amazing.
And they happened to take a look at a tiny little project going on at the park too. =)

Bier Fest is back Busch Gardens and we’re to check out this year’s offerings!
This year’s festival map, most of Gwazi Park is blocked off for obvious reasons. More on that later!
Love the giant menu board at the festival entrance that lets you know what’s on tap at each location.
Plenty of food options available to soak up all the beer!
We tried the Spicy Mango Wings and Sweet Potato Fries, both delicious! And of course a Rosé Float for dessert!
Don’t worry, it’s not all beer at Bier Fest. There’s plenty of options for everyone! We can’t wait to go back for more. Weekends through 9/8
Bier Fest continues weekends through September 8th. You can find out all the details here.
Oh, and there is this other thing going on at the park too!!
It looks pretty amazing
Today we're back at Busch Gardens, but the one that is 835 miles north of the one we were at yesterday.

But today we're in Williamsburg with Renée who spent the weekend riding some amazing rides and drinking some amazing beer (bier?). Let's check out one of the best parks in the country!!

All weekend we were at Busch Gardens Williamsburg for Bier Fest. And some awesome coasters, too.
Might as well get started on the beer! Here is just some of what Busch Gardens VA has to offer for Bier Fest.
Alpengeist is still so good!!
Well. Battle for Eire is... a ride?
Happy 40th, Loch Ness Monster. You get even better with age!
I found my new home.
You can’t go wrong with any of the coasters Busch Gardens VA
Ended the night with some amazing rides on Apollo’s Chariot!
Back at Busch Gardens VA for some more coaster fun! First train of the day on InvadR, and the whole train to myself as well.
Got a few more rides in on Griffon before things get busier.
Delayed opening for Verbolten. The only new coaster for me left on this trip, so I’ll wait it out.
I’m seeing signs for these all over the park. I guess I’m out of touch with this fad. Are these the new fidget spinners?
Verbolten was a surprise hit for me! There seriously are zero bad coasters at this park.
t’s the final day for Bier Fest. Gotta get another sampler card to try some more!
Getting some gorgeous views on the Rhine River Cruise.
Giving out fanny packs to riders for loose articles on Tempesto is something I’ve never encountered on a coaster before, but hey, it’s fast and it works.
The theming on all of the Busch Gardens VA rides are really top notch. Escape From Pompeii is short and sweet with just enough fire and water for an awesome ride.
My face when I’m trying to sample all the beers on the last day of Bier Fest and it’s 90+ degrees outside and I only have 3 hours left.
The park is gearing up for Howl O Scream in a few days.
The last performance for the Happy Dutchman, closing out Bier Fest. Auf wiedersehen!
Views from the Sky Ride.
For Bier Fest they also had some brewery talks, which I always find interesting to attend.
This Busch Gardens doesn’t have quite as many animals as Tampa, but there are a few. Here are some random sheep.
Prost! Had such a fun weekend
This year both Busch Gardens parks brought us the awesome Bier Fest. And we have reports from both of them this week.
We'll be starting off with the event at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay with Steve and Jen.

Welcome to Bier Fest!!
Lots of great booths throughout the park
Always a good idea on a Florida Summer Day
Some amazing food, all the way from California even!!
Steve doesn't trust anybody who's taller than him
You can even take some Beers (Biers?) home with you
Awesome summer salad
So much to enjoy, will we be able to try them all?
Seriously, look at all those options!!
Of course we got all of our punches done, and had an amazing time doing it!!
Bier Fest was so great and we're looking forward to seeing it again before it's gone.
Bier Fest runs until September 16th. You can find all of the details here.
