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

Mailbag Monday – The Decision-Makers Edition


Today’s Mailbag Monday answers only one question, but it’s a big one. It comes from Kristopher on Facebook: This is a great question, and it’s one we don’t have all the answers to. We’ll try to shed some light where we can though. First, let’s narrow down exactly which locations Disney operates. This is important… → Read More

Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. More Cowbell Double IPA


I think most of you know the famous Saturday Night Live “More Cowbell” sketch, but if not (or if you just want to watch it) here’s the skit. “I have a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell!” Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co. in Houston crafted More Cowbell, an Imperial IPA available both on draft… → Read More

Kiuchi Brewery Hitachino Nest White Ale


Sapporo. Kirin Ichiban. Asahi. All Japanese. All thin, yellow, fizzy lagers. The land of the rising sun has a stereotype of poor beer. Kiuchi Brewery doesn’t believe it needs to be that way. Their line of Hitachino Nest ales are brewed using European technology and Japanese brewing methods and ingredients. The Hitachino Nest White Ale is… → 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

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

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

The menus are out and the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Beer List is updated (along with a brand new app). Let’s chat about what’s on the list. Last year I wrote a huge article detailing every beer at every location. This year I’m going to cut it down a bit and talk about… → Read More

Southern Star Black Crack


Just under an hour north of downtown Houston is a town called Conroe, TX. It’s still considered part of the Houston metro area, but it’s a bit far out there. Anyway, Conroe is the home of Southern Star Brewing Company, who has been in operation since 2007. Similar to Karbach, Southern Star packages its year-round… → Read More
