An Exclusive Member Event: Sneak Peek Day March 17February 16, 2018
Celebrate all things Irish this St. Patrick's Day at Busch Gardens®. Join us March 17 from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m for our first-ever Sneak Peek Day. The festivities include Irish food and drinks, music and of course your favorite coasters and attractions.
Indulge in Irish Food and Pints
Enjoy traditional Irish dishes like Scottish eggs and shepherd's pie. Or try a grilled banger sandwich and grab a Guinness® mousse for dessert. There will be plenty of green kettle corn, too.
Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about the beverages. You can warm up with a cup of Irish coffee or cool down with a light beer (colored green, of course). But an Irish snack wouldn't be the same without a pint to pair it with. Guinness (dry stout) and Kilkenny (red ale) are our imported beers of this event.
If a good brew isn't your... cup of tea (so to speak), there will be whiskey, scotch and bourbon flights available for purchase.
To add to the Irish flair, O' Tators and Grogan's Pub will be open during this event.
If you have ever attended our craft beer festival, Bier Fest, then you may be familiar with our Brewery Talks.
Williamsburg's local brewery, Alewerks Brewing Company, will be at Grogan's Pub in Ireland to talk about their brewing process.
