In the spirit of Octoberfest, Margaritaville at Sea is trading salt-rimmed stemware for beer steins for Pints in Paradise, the only craft beer festival at sea and the cruise line’s first food-and-beverage-focused event.
Guests departing on September 30 through October 16 will be offered samples from a selection of more than 60 beers, ciders, and seltzers from local and national brewhouses, including Armed Forces Brewing Company, Barrel of Monks Brewing, Funky Buddha, Sweetwater Brewing Company, and more.
In addition, guests sailing during the event will enjoy pub bites with island-inspired twists, as well as festive Octoberfest entertainment, like the Grand Champion Stein-Holding Contest. Each Pints in Paradise sailing will feature exclusive offerings and experiences from participating breweries, like swag giveaways, meet-and-greets with brewery representatives, Q&As, and more.
The “Pints in Paradise Pass,” a 15-sample tasting punch card and lanyard, can be purchased in advance or added to an existing reservation for $35 per person (gratuity included). Each punch includes a 3- or 4-ounce sample of any of the featured beverages on the Pints in Paradise menu, and full cans and bottles will be available for purchase.
