ORLANDO, Fla. — Free beer is returning to SeaWorld Orlando sooner than initially announced — and passholders will be able to get their free brews first.

From May 25 through September 2, one free beer will be available to park guests 21 or older from 10:30 a.m. to an hour before the park closes. Visitors can pick up the free 14-ounce brew at Mama's Pretzel Kitchen Patio Bar.

Annual passholders will be able to get their free beer starting Friday.

Earlier this week, SeaWorld had said the free beer promotion would return in June.

In the past, SeaWorld Orlando visitors ages 21 and up were able to get two free 7-ounce samples.

Over at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, SeaWorld Orlando's sister park, free beer is being offered all year long as part of the park's 60th anniversary. The only exception is during Howl-O-Scream nights.
