Perfectly paired with these drinks are more than 15 food items. Popular dishes from previous festivals like the Banana Foster Beignets and Walking Taco will be returning, while new items like Short Rib Poutine, Street Corn coated in Cotija cheese and Flame Cheeto crumbs, and a Churro Cheesecake will also be on the menu. 

And if that wasn’t enough, the Craft Beer Festival is taking place at the same time as the SeaWorld Summer Spectacular. That means you can end a day full of eating and drinking with live music at Club SeaGlow, free concerts at the Nautilus Theatre and the spectacular Ignite fireworks display.
