Wine and Beer Tastings

A fin-tastic way to whet your whistle!

Bring a date or bring a friend and mix and mingle among sharks, stingrays and seahorses without getting wet. Adult Swim events feature after-hours Aquarium access as well as a sampling of adult beverages accompanied by light hors d’oeuvres. Each one-of-a-kind tasting is themed (wine or cider/beer) to be seasonally appropriate and to accommodate guests’ differing palates. Guests are encouraged to purchase early as the event has a history of selling out. Promotional support provided by Scene magazine.

  • 20 tasting tickets (for general and Passholder levels)
