Since Annie's Cafe has closed for the rest of the main season, the Pub is now serving some of the coffee-type drinks.

That's good to hear! I imagine that they moved some of the equipment from Annie's up to the bar? I can't see them making the drinks in the back and bringing them up front.

Waking up fresh every mornin'; Openin' up for you; Waitin' for your laughter; With so much new to do! Busch—Gardens! Busch—Gardens! Come to Busch Gardens and come to life! Come to Busch Gardens and come—to life!

Why did Annie's close?

there was a need for glitter, tinsel, and dollar store props STAT! They really had no other choice. It was that or shut down Alpie.

Just out of curiosity. When did the pub start showing regular TV channels inside? Went in today and found ESPN on.

Guess they can't show videos of Scott anymore?

"Annie Grogan's Irish Stout"

Image

Looks like Alewerks and Busch Gardens teamed up for a very unique/cool beer collaboration at Grogan's/Annie's. According to Untappd it was first available on March 18th (preview day), so I'm guessing that was the first day it was ever available or introduced to the public.

I was talking with bartenders (I know, I know, never trust an employee) on Friday night and they mentioned that there will be some improvements and changes to the pub to tie in with Battle For Eire. they plan to expand the taps and offer more beer choices. There will also be some internal changes (cosmetic) changes to the interior.

That sounds exciting, and I feel inclined to believe that. I hope they don't go overboard, though. Battle for Eire's theme is Ireland's "otherworld", whereas Grogan's Pub represents BGW's "real Ireland". If there is any crossover, it should be very subtle, in my opinion.

That said, Killarney takes a more unconventional and fanciful approach to what is real than most of the parks' villages. That fact has long been the topic of heated debate, as to whether or not they should use such storytelling in their countries represented. In Killarney, "magic" and "the luck of the Irish" can be found almost anywhere in the village. The more obvious examples are things like the enchanted tree and the pot of gold hidden in the fountain.

There were more subtle references at one time, like town notices from fictitious characters that existed in various shows and attractions throughout the village. One was written by Seamus; the villain of Secrets of Castle O'Sullivan, pertaining to something stolen by a mischevious leprechaun named Clancey.

One of these days, I want to create a thread about BGW lore, and how it's all connected. Ireland might be a great start for that, although my focus is mainly on Germany now. I just hope they don't ruin a good thing with Battle for Eire.
