#1 Might as well. SeaWorld parks were vilified by the left for capturing the Killer Whales, something they won't do to China.

#2 Don't misunderestimate SeaWorld! Once upon a time, brew pubs were illegal in Texas. The state had a 3-tier distribution law: brewers could only sell to distributors who could then sell to retailers. tl;dr: you could not brew beer and sell it on-premises.
There was *one* exception, however. If you were a brewer who produced at least a certain large amount of beer annually, and you owned an amusement park of at least a certain acreage, AND you displayed marine mammals at said park, then it was OK to retail beer on-premise. Anheuser-Busch SeaWorld, if you have not figured it out yet.
This law is no longer on the books. Whether this is due to
1) the expiration of the "financial transaction" that created it;
2) the righteous anger of The People and their demands for good beer;
3) the State expected enhanced revenue for fees and taxes on brew pubs;
I don't know. It's probably some combination of 1 and 3. Net result was Texas got good local beer and I got cynical.
