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
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
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
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
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
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
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

Ordered this based on a recommendation from my friend since he knew I’m a huge fan of stouts and chocolate. From their site: Unsurprisingly for a beer from the Young’s stable, Double Chocolate Stout has been recognised as an award-winning brew on several occasions, including: Brewing Industry International Awards Gold Medal Winner 2000, Silver Medal… → Read More
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
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
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
Finishing out my Sam Adams pack with some Old Fezziwig Ale on New Year’s Eve. Wherever you are, whatever you’re drinking, have a fabulous New Year!
Usually I don’t go for a hoppy beer….but this is a decent ale from Indiana brewer Three Floyds.
Kinda like Blue Moon, but not!

Just in time to be removed from the standard beer menu at Walt Disney World (and replaced by Left Hand Milk Stout two weeks later), here’s my review of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout. Wells & Young’s Brewery in Bedford, England, is a result of a merger between Charles Wells Ltd. and Young’s Brewery. Wells is… → Read More
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
