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

crawlDisney: Beers Around the World (Showcase)


Last updated April 27, 2015 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

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

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

Chef Mickey’s


Chef Mickey’s, how can I best describe it? Loud (very loud) Full of children (including my own on this particular Saturday evening) Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto coming to each table Random “celebration time” every so often with children spinning napkins in the air (yes, back to the children) Sounds like the perfect place… → Read More

Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale


A Happy Holiday season to you all! This certainly is my favorite time of year. I hope it is yours too! And may yours be filled with peppermint cocoa, candy canes, kisses under the mistletoe and getting completely trashed and embarrassing yourself in front of the family because you had too much of this amazing… → Read More

Leffe Blonde


In our initial article on all the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival beers we accidentally overlooked this one. Oops! Good thing we noticed, because Leffe may be the jewel of the Belgium booth. Leffe, according to the brewery website, was originally brewed by the monks of the Leffe Abbey. The abbey was flooded in… → Read More

Muddy Rivers Pool Bar at Port Orleans Riverside


Something we never seem to do when we’re at Walt Disney World is spend much time at the pool. We spend most of our time in the parks instead. I did, however, stop by the Muddy Rivers Pool Bar one afternoon to check it out. See that guy in the white behind the tree on… → 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
