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

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

Guinness: Black Gold of the Irish


Guinness.  Do you even need any more?  Yes, yes you do. This is a special post for me because Guinness Stout is my mostest favoritest beer ever.  Sure I love almost all beers (unless they say things like “with a touch of lime”), but Guinness is the one that never lets me down. There are… → 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

Birrificio Le Baladin Nora


I was walking through the local liquor store the other day not finding much (I had once again gone in search of Southern Tier’s Pumking but struck out) when I was walking down the import aisle. This isn’t your normal import aisle full of Heineken and Corona; it has beer from all around including the… → Read More

Abita Andygator


Presenting Abita Andygator, a Helles Doppelbock from Abita Springs, LA.  For a very long time, Andygator was only available on tap and somewhat rare; however, within the last couple of years Abita started bottling this delicious brew.  It only comes in the bomber bottle filled with over a pint of 8% alcohol content beer.  This… → Read More

Real Ale Full Moon Pale Rye Ale


Full Moon Pale Rye Ale is the third and final beer in the Real Ale sampler pack. Unexpectedly, this tastes more like an IPA than a pale ale. Spicy hops coupled with a bready rye taste make this a nice beer to drink. I enjoyed this much more than the Rio Blanco Pale Ale I… → 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

‘Ohana


My original plan for June was to only dine at one table service restaurant we ate at previously. Chef Mickey’s was definitely for the kids and it made it easy to meet the characters. The original plan for Friday, our last night at WDW, was a free evening, and that’s how I made our dining… → Read More

Peroni Nastro Azzuro


When I say Italy, what is the first thing that comes to mind?  Art, architecture, wine, Ferraris, hairy men that talk with their hands (I’m kidding…sorta)?  Where does beer fall on that list?  Pretty far down, right?  Why so many questions, will there be a quiz later?  Yes, yes there will. Peroni is Italy’s number 1… → Read More

Michelob Ultra


In case you didn’t read yesterday’s Bud Light article, here is a recap of the events that led to this review in rage comic format. After first having the Bud Light, I thought even among these less than satisfactory beers it could only get better. Fortunately, I was correct. I next ordered a Michelob Ultra…. → Read More
