There used to be a Busch Gardens in Van Nuys

LA Times:

The attractions are long gone, but in the 1960s the company brought back a more modern version of Busch Gardens at its Van Nuys brewery. It had boat rides for visitors, a monorail and a key attraction fondly remembered by many -- free beer.

"It was amazing," recalled Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge, who visited as a teenager. "It was a big treat to sit on the monorail and tour that big brewing plant."
