I do remember Busch Gardens in Van Nuys. A bit of tropical/jungle paradise in the middle of a brewery. Now all that’s left is the brewery (and the overpowering smell of
hops malt), but it used to have exotic birds, tours, a tram (the tracks are still there) and, of course free beer. Did I taste the free beer as an 8-year-old. It was the ’70s, so I’ll leave the answer to you.
There’s a disclaimer on his site: You may not host the files at your site. They are only available here. So click to see what Busch Gardens would look like in a video game.
Here’s a quote from the text:
Most of Busch Gardens Van Nuys was scenery and drinking lots of low cost, high quality Beer!
Not so sure about “high quality,” but we’ll let that pass.
