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?

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

2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Review: SweetWater Take-Two Pils


Did you miss me? It’s not like I’ve been radio silent; I’ve been posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. However, the site itself is long overdue for a new article, so let’s get on with it. 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

Conveniently, the Resort Monorail loop will take you to the Contemporary, Polynesian, and Grand Floridian resorts for a monorail bar crawl. If you’re staying at one of these resorts, just hop on the Resort… → 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


We’re down to the Final Four beers in the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament! Sometime late Saturday night or Sunday, a post on Facebook started getting shared around. I haven’t seen this post personally, but the large influx of views from Facebook, the random comments on the site, and the voting all showed that there was… → Read More

What's Hot

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

Birra del Borgo 25 Dodici and Italy Christmas Beers


On Monday night I sat down to watch the Saints play the worst game they’ve played in a while against the Seahawks with a bottle of 25 Dodici from Birra del Borgo. The 25 Dodici definitely took the sting out of the Saints’ inept play in Seattle. Little did I know that we would be… → Read More

Be Our Guest Restaurant


I recently realized I jumped around a bit here. Chronologically, the infamous evening where we tried to go to Big River was on Wednesday, while our Animal Kingdom/Boma day and Downtown Disney evening were on Tuesday. On Thursday we spent another day in the Magic Kingdom and had dinner at the crown jewel of New… → Read More

Saint Arnold Sailing Santa


Ahoy sailors! “We’re kicking off our fun old fashion family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old front-wheel drive sleigh to embrace the frosty majesty of the winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols.” – Clark Griswold Okay, so maybe we aren’t going to go out into the country… → 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/Three Floyds Bitch Please


What happens when two craft brewers get together? They brew beer together. Back in August 2010 (which was also when I was in Scotland for a business trip), the guys from Indiana’s Three Floyds took a trip to Fraserburgh, Scotland to brew a collaboration beer. They named the result Bitch Please. To be honest, they could… → Read More

Black Velvet at Rose & Crown


The winner of the night, and my all time favorite drink when both beers are available… the Black Velvet! Didn’t think we’d make it this far in our adventure but we did! Half Guinness…half cider….in this case it was Strongbow (my favorite). Some people think Guiness is too heavy, others think cider is too sweet…. → Read More

Abita Restoration Pale Ale


Abita Restoration Pale Ale holds a special place in my heart.  It’s a good beer but the reason behind it is even better.  In 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita barreled into the southeast and southwest coasts of Louisiana respectively.  With this beer, Abita raised over $500,000 for hurricane relief.  Since then it’s become a regularly… → Read More

Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout


A not-so-secret thing about me: I don’t like coffee. It smells just fine to me but once I taste it, yuck. Needless to say, I don’t frequent Starbucks. However, I don’t usually have a problem with beers that taste like coffee as long as the coffee flavor isn’t overwhelming. Thus, I’m trying Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout…. → Read More
