Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale


It’s been a while, but this isn’t the first Shiner beer we’ve had on the site. Far from it actually; I reviewed the Shiner Family Reunion pack a while ago, which included the old standby Shiner Bock as well as other beers such as Hefeweizen and Kosmos Reserve. Shiner Bock does make an appearance at… → Read More

2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Rumor: Beer Pour Sizes


8/20/2014 Update: Additional sources have said the 6 ounce pours will be limited to the Food and Wine Festival booths themselves. Other World Showcase locations will serve their normal selection and sizes. It sounds like decisions are still in flux a bit, but y’all have shown a lot of interest in this. Original article below…. → Read More

New Belgium Snapshot


Here’s a snapshot of a Snapshot. Thankfully, this beer isn’t called New Belgium Selfie. It’s a 2014 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival beer, so let’s discuss! Most of the beers at Hops and Barley are wheat beers with fruity flavor to them. Leinenkugel’s Seasonal Shandy and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat both are full of fruit…. → Read More

Uinta Baba Black Lager


Here’s the first pre-2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival beer review! Uinta Brewing’s Baba Black Lager is a beer Disney mentioned would be on the Food and Wine Festival menu early. It will be found at the Farm Fresh booth and is featured there because it’s certified organic by the USDA and the Utah Department… → Read More

The Beer of the 2014 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival


I’ve been on the lookout for the full 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival menus, and they’re finally here! Instead of making educated guesses as to where these booths will appear like we did last year (which was a little hit and miss), I’m going to take them alphabetically. Note that if a booth doesn’t have… → Read More

Love Child #4

Boulevard Brewing Love Child #4


It’s been a crazy couple of weeks around here. My sister got married in New Orleans over the weekend (remember she got engaged at Port Orleans last year?) and getting everything ready has been rather time consuming. I’m back from NOLA now and I just picked up Boulevard Brewing’s Love Child #4 from the nearby store…. → Read More

Stone Stochasticity Project Quadrotriticale


Remember the semi-mysterious Stocasticity Project? I know we’ve talked about it somewhere before, but I can’t seem to find it. It doesn’t seem to have been an article; perhaps it was a Twitter conversation instead… Ah, here’s an Instagram of the first beer to come from it; Grapefruit Slam IPA. Long story short, the Grapefruit… → Read More

Victory HopDevil

Victory HopDevil IPA


Yesterday Google had their I/O conference keynote and at the end (in addition to smartwatches) they handed out a kit called Cardboard. It’s a cardboard kit designed to turn your Android phone into a virtual reality headset. But I’m looking at this thing and all I can think is they made Tool’s 10,000 Days album into… → Read More

Beer Tours: Beers Around the World (Showcase)


Last updated May 6, 2014 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… → 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

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

Samuel Adams Octoberfest and a New Beer List


Avaliable from August to October, Samuel Adams Octoberfest is a seasonal beer for the Fall, even though most of us wouldn’t quite consider it to be Fall yet. To fully understand this beer, let’s first discuss Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is the biggest festival in the world; it takes place annually in Munich, Germany and lasts somewhere… → Read More

Angry Orchard

A Trip to the Angry Orchard


Recently Disney seems to be adding more gluten free options to its selection. The newly-opened Art of Animation Resort has a few gluten free options in its food court Landscape of Flavors. One of these is the hard cider I’m trying tonight: Angry Orchard Hard Cider from Cleveland, OH. Turns out Angry Orchard has a couple… → Read More

Mailbag Monday – Mostly World Showcase Edition


Mailbag Monday is going strong! Special thanks to @ThemeParkBeer for letting us know we didn’t have KRNR (the booth outside Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster) on our list! The KRNR place has booze. @beersandears @DrunkAtdisney pic.twitter.com/DtEECLYCP0 — ThemeParkBeerDrinker (@ThemeParkBeer) June 1, 2014 As always, let us know if something is missing or wrong in our beer lists!… → Read More

Deschutes Brewery Black Butte Porter


Black Butte Porter, named for the Black Butte (pronounced byoot, not butt) in Oregon, is a pitch black porter from Deschutes (pronounced dey-shoot) Brewery in Bend, Oregon. I’ve not been to Bend, but I have been to Eugene, Oregon (home of the Oregon Ducks) and it’s absolutely beautiful up there. Looking at Google Maps, however,… → Read More

Unibroue Trois Pistoles


Yes, it’s time for another Unibroue beer from those fine Canadian brewers. This is Trois Pistoles, a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Before we begin, this one gave me a bit of surprise when I was opening it. I removed the cage from around the cork in the bottle but didn’t remove the cork. I turned… → Read More
