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.

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.

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 15 and Bishop’s Barrel 8


This review was supposed to go up yesterday, but things happened and it didn’t. Sorry about that. We’ve all pretty much moved on from the Super Bowl by now I believe, but those were some of most depressing ads ever. Yes, I’m looking at you Nationwide. Lots of controversy in the craft beer community over the… → Read More

Ads and Such (or Why Am I Seeing Ads?)


A little housekeeping this morning. Undoubtedly you’ve already noticed an ad either above the article or at the top right corner. After long deliberations on how best to proceed, I think I’ve come up with a solution for ads that’s not too intrusive and keeps the ads relevant rather than whatever random ad Google might… → 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

Guinness Foreign Extra Stout


Remember when we wrote articles about beer at Walt Disney World? Those were the days, right? Actually, I’ve been holding off since I’ll be there in June. However, I recently came into some Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. Yes, that’s right, I recently came into some Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. As the story goes, my wife… → Read More

Unibroue Trois Pistoles


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

Mailbag Monday – Gluten-Free Edition


Welcome back to Mailbag Monday! Before we get started, it’s not often we get analysis of theme and the history behind it for a bar. However, EPCOT Explorer has done just that for Trader Sam’s at Disneyland (and he goes into the just-announced Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto for the Polynesian Village as well). It’s a… → 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

Coolest Car Ever!


We stopped at a local beer & wine shop in Maryland and saw this car. Not only was it my favorite color; it even has a tap built in! Shock Top beer is great too!
