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

2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Review: BrewDog Punk IPA


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

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

crawlDisney: Crawling the Highway in the Sky


Looking for a pub crawl that can be fairly quick and won’t involve much walking? This Monorail Pub Crawl is for you! 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

The 2015 Disney Beer Tournament – Fourth Round


Note: The fourth round is now closed! Please vote in the fifth round of the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament! In just a week and a half, 64 beers have been reduced to eight! Most of the matches in the third round were close ones. Let’s look at what you had to say. Birra Moretti La… → Read More

Up and Coming Italy Pavilion Beer Program


If you haven’t checked out the craft beer selection in the Italy pavilion lately, you are really missing out on some great new offerings.  Wait…craft beer?  In the Italy Pavilion?  Yes, you heard us right!  While down in Disney World for the Food & Wine festival, we were able to get an overview of the… → Read More

Samuel Adams Scotch Ale


Here is something a little different. An ale with four malts. One of them is a rare peat-smoked malt used in Scotch whiskies…giving the beer a smoky flavor.

Warsteiner Premium Dunkel


The 2013 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival starts this Friday, September 27! This week we’ll bring you some beer reviews to some of the Food and Wine beers. A while ago the Flying Saucer in downtown Houston had a special event with Warsteiner. I believe the beer being served was the Premium Verum instead… → Read More

Tsingtao – Say that Three Times Fast!


To followup on Jenn’s post last week, I also gave Tsingtao a try. I loved it! It’s very much like Moosehead, which is another great beer my friend Tom Norton (@nortyuk on twitter) enjoys. I now know what I’ll be getting every time I’m in the China pavilion at EPCOT! I highly recommend it! Thanks… → Read More

Rogue Voodoo Doughnut

Rogue Voodoo Doughnut


Rogue hit another home run with this quirky combination of doughnut, maple syrup and BACON? I don’t know about you but I can’t pass up any beer in a pink bottle. Speaking of the bottle, I would highly recommend only opening this bottle if you either have plenty of time to drink or reinforcements to… → Read More

Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager


Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager is brewed around this time every year. Each year Abita adds strawberry puree from the strawberries grown in Ponchatoula, LA to this limited batch of beer. Unfortunately, I’m not very satisfied with this year’s brew. It has a musty scent and an unusual taste to match. Did I just get a… → Read More

Abita Turbodog


As many of you know, I’m from New Orleans. Thus, Abita is as close to a hometown brewery as it gets for me (it’s actually on the north shore of Lake Pontchatrain, while New Orleans and its suburbs are on the south shore). Turbodog is a dark ale with a smokey taste. I’m a bit… → Read More

Narwhal Imperial Stout

Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout


I’m going to get straight to the point on this beer to save you some time. If you like bold rich and dark stouts, then stock up on as many of these 4-packs as you can. This beer is malty enough that you can age it for years to come so don’t worry about buying… → Read More

Lagunitas New Dogtown Pale Ale


You might have heard there was a little football game on Sunday, and although I wasn’t really interested in the outcome I went to a friend’s house to watch on his projector and about 100″ screen. We ate Raising Cane’s chicken fingers, drank, and were merry. It was a BYOB event, so I brought along… → Read More

Lagunitas Undercover Investigation Shutdown


First and foremost. How many spelling errors do you think will be in this post? Second. I got a puppy. Third. (Thirdly?) Stock photo. Have I found my favorite beer? No. Because that’s like picking a favorite kid, you can’t, you love them equally. However, you do go through times/seasons, if you will, where you… → Read More
