Anheuser-Busch InBev's theme park division is halting free beer samples at park hospitality centers.
Busch Entertainment Corp. announced an end to the decades-old practice of offering free tastings of Budweiser and other brands. The unit operates 10 theme parks around the country under the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens banners.
The theme parks are rumored to be potentially on the auction block as the Belgian company looks for cash to help pay for the $52 billion acquisition. In the meantime, park visitors will still be able to purchase beer in park restaurants.
