The tour will include samples of AB products directly from a "finishing tank." Then again, you can probably have the same experience drinking tap water.

I'm on board with this. You could do a lot with a leprechaun theme...

or sell BGW and BGT to the Guinness people. Ramp up the beer selection. Call the ride "Drowning Shamrock"
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

Here is some more info in the brewery tours:

News link

They are calling it "pop-up" tours and are on a first come first serve basis on select days.

Public tours are available on the following weekends:

June 1
June 2 – June 3
July 7 – 8
August 4 – 5
September 1 – September 2

On Fridays, tours are at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Then on Saturdays and Sundays tour times are 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Guests will be able to have a unique behind-the-scenes look at the art of brewing Budweiser. The tour includes visits to brewing, the lagering and finishing cellars, packaging, and a sample directly from a finishing tank for those 21+.

The cost of the tour is $25 for guests 21 and over and $10 for guests aged 13 to 20. Anyone under the age of 13 is not permitted to join the tour.

The Anheuser-Busch Williamsburg Brewery opened in 1972 and brews beer enjoyed by residents in Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Georgia.


(I was hoping for 5 golden tickets hidden in select cases throughout the summer)

I wonder if you can choose what you want to sample. All of this is piss except Shock Top and Landshark, although I'm not above Hurricane Malt. :lol: :lol:

Oh who am I kidding. With Alpengeist & Griffon so close I'll probably never do this. :lmao:

I'd rather spend my beer money in the park's Brauhaus enjoying a nice craft brew.

BGW needs a headlining attraction more than they do a watered down spinning coaster. They already got their family ride in Invadr.
The ride never ends. The exit is just another enterance. Whoop whoop.
