Victory Golden Monkey


Victory the Golden Monkey. Sounds like the newest member of The Muppets, right? Maybe if Estelle were writing this, we’d hear all about this imaginary Muppet, but you’ll just have to put up with me today and learn about the beer Victory Golden Monkey. Victory hails from Downington, PA, where two friends decided to strike… → Read More

North Coast Brewing Co. Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout


Now that the Disney Beer Tournament is over for this year, it’s time to get back to reviewing some beer! I’m starting with Old Rasputin by North Coast Brewing Co.

Beer Tours: Beers Around the World (Showcase)


Drinking around the world at Epcot. It’s become almost an attraction in itself over the years, but what if you’re interested in drinking beer around the world instead of all those frou-frou drinks? The good news is all of the World Showcase pavilions serve beer. However, not all of them are the greatest. This guide… → Read More

Schöfferhofer Grapefruit is Back!


I was walking through World Showcase after dinner at Via Napoli Monday night (more on that later) and wandered into the Germany pavilion next door. Once inside the Germany pavilion I briefly looked over at the stand with the best name in all of Walt Disney World. Seriously, it’s called Bier. It’s so obvious that… → Read More

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2014: The Beer


Spring has, well, not yet sprung, but Disney’s finally blessed us with the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival menus for the “outdoor kitchens” (read: booths). Let’s take a look at the beer! Disney starts off pretty well here with Florida Fresh. Here are four Florida beers, three of which aren’t usually found around the resort…. → Read More

Guinness Extra Stout


Last week Brian wrote a fascinating article about Guinness and its history. Brian’s article mainly focused on the draught variety of Guinness, while I’ve just opened up what Guinness refers to as Extra Stout. It’s important to note that Extra Stout is brewed by the Guinness Brewing Company in New Brunswick, Canada. Yes, the labels on the… → Read More

Beer Souvenirs at Walt Disney World


If you’re like me, you’re not a fan of the generic year merchandise and the stuff you can find at nearly every store in Walt Disney World. With the generally family-friendly atmosphere of Walt Disney World, I wasn’t expecting to find much in the way of beer-related souvenirs. To my surprise, this wasn’t exactly the case…. → Read More

The Beer of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2013!


The booth menus are out (here’s the full list), so let’s take a look at the beers that will grace our presence (or not) at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2013. Let’s start from the north (World Showcase Plaza) and go clockwise, as far as we know based on last year’s map. Terra… → Read More

Goose Island Lolita (2013)


Back on New Year’s Eve at The Avenue, I first had Cantillon Mamouche, but the pub had also put a number of other beers on for the occasion including several other sours. Lolita by Goose Island was on draft so I decided to give it a shot as well. As far as i can tell,… → Read More

The Beers and Ears Walt Disney World Beer List iPhone App!


In a secret lab at an undisclosed location (not really, but it sounds cool), we’ve been hard at work. Now we’re ready to reveal a secret that’s been kept better than the iPhone 4 (despite our love for beer, this secret wasn’t left in a bar) . We’ve created an iPhone app that puts our… → Read More

The Beer of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2011


Why would a site about beer and Walt Disney World have an article on the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival? Despite the name (I guess Food and Beverage Festival or Food and Alcohol Festival wasn’t as catchy), many of the Food and Wine booths around World Showcase Lagoon serve beer! The 2011 map just came out;… → Read More
