2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Review: Palm Spéciale


Belgium. You’ve heard me complain about the lackluster selection at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival’s Belgium booth for years. For years it’s been fully populated by AB-InBev beers and Disney hasn’t really tried to make it any better, despite Belgium being one of the greatest beer countries in the world. Palm, however, is not… → Read More

Did somebody say punk? [responsive_youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02D2T3wGCYg] Perhaps something more recent? [responsive_youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2zfwTqpqVg] Today is the beginning of the 2015 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! Let’s talk. First, the Food and Wine Festival Beer List and iOS app are updated. A couple of locations are still being pinned down, so the locations may shift in the next… → Read More

Have you heard the full menus for the 2015 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival are up? I’m going to… → Read More

Bear Republic Grand-Am American Pale Ale


Some say that Racer 5 and Grand-Am are brewed just for Cars Land… .@traveljenn @DisneylandToday neither are brewed just for Cars Land FYI. They're @BearRepublic products that can be purchased anywhere. — Beers and Ears (@beersandears) May 4, 2015 This ends today’s lesson in “don’t believe everything you read on Twitter”. However, Bear Republic products… → Read More

2015 Flower & Garden Beer Reviews – Take 1


Ready for a long post??? A few weekends ago my friends and I headed over to Epcot to check out the 2015 Flower and Garden Festival that kicked off March 4th.  This and Food & Wine are easily my two favorite times of the year at Epcot, for obvious reasons.  Since I’ve been such a… → Read More

Presenting the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament Champion!


It’s been two weeks since we started the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament and we have a champion! A few comments from Twitter: .@beersandears as much as I enjoy Chimay Blue, I'm pulling for DFH90. They're my kind of people. http://t.co/UuSg7I72HM #DisneyBeer2015 — Jason Heger (@Nissan_Rogue_sq) April 2, 2015 Me: I wish there was a beer… → Read More

The 2015 Disney Beer Tournament – Championship Round


It’s finally time for two beers to try to bring home the bacon. To be honest, the polls were pretty decisive from the start. These two beers started out in the lead and never relinquished it. Let’s get right to it. First, on the left side of the bracket… Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA never… → Read More

The 2015 Disney Beer Tournament – Fifth Round

crawlDisney: Beers Around the World (Showcase)


Last updated April 27, 2015 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

Abita 25th Anniversary Vanilla Doubledog


It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Abita. One reason is that like Abita, I was born and raised in Louisiana. I didn’t like beer before I started drinking Abita Amber, and over the years since the Abita brewery has given me plenty of different beers to try, including Purple Haze, Jockamo IPA, and… → Read More

Real Ale Full Moon Pale Rye Ale


Full Moon Pale Rye Ale is the third and final beer in the Real Ale sampler pack. Unexpectedly, this tastes more like an IPA than a pale ale. Spicy hops coupled with a bready rye taste make this a nice beer to drink. I enjoyed this much more than the Rio Blanco Pale Ale I… → Read More

Delirium Nocturnum


From the Huyghe Brewery in Belgium comes the other beer with the little pink elephants. Delirium Nocturnum is the sister beer to Delirium Tremens and is a nice dark ale. The deep brown has a reddish tinge to it, and the tan head lingers for a while. It has a roasted flavor along with some… → Read More

Meta Beer


My second beer attempt at Dawa Bar was another Ethiopian brew, Meta. Meta Abo Brewery is located in the town of Sebata, 27 km from Addis Ababa. The brewery was established in 1963 by the Ethiopian Government and Ethiopian private nationals as a share company with a starting capital base of 2 million Birr.  It… → Read More

Unibroue La Fin du Monde


La Fin du Monde – “The End of the World” in French – is an absolutely delicious beer from Canada’s Unibroue. This brewery, although located in Quebec, concentrates on brewing beer in the Trappist tradition. In this case, La Fin du Monde isn’t referring to the Book of Revelations or the Flash animation (“Fire ze… → Read More

Sea Dog Blue Paw Wild Blueberry Wheat Ale


I wanted to like this beer…I really did. But I just couldn’t do it. The initial taste of the beer was meh. Nothing to write home about. The aftertaste though made up for it slightly, but it tasted like I had just eaten a blueberry muffin, but not what a beer should taste like. Strange…. → Read More

Birra Moretti La Rossa


Before officially starting to Drink Around the World, lunch at Via Napoli was necessary… as was a little La Rossa! Had a stronger hoppy flavor than what I was expecting, but we liked it.  It went really well with the pizza.  Since I mainly had only light apps though, it was slightly too heavy with… → Read More

BrewDog 5 A.M. Saint


Tonight I’m enjoying a beer called 5 A.M. Saint from a small Scottish brewery known as BrewDog.  The bottle refers to the beer as an “iconoclastic amber ale”, meaning that it is trying to destroy established conventions in the beer industry.  The side of the label can best be described as a rant against the… → Read More
