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

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

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.

App Review: Untappd


I never thought I would be doing an app review for Beers and Ears, but here we are.  Untappd, to put it simply, is Foursquare for beer.  Honestly, this is something I was hoping GetGlue would have added a long time ago; GetGlue currently tracks wine check-ins but not beer.  However, Untappd is a more… → Read More

Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale


Last night I was out and the bartender leans over and says, “You want a little sumpin’ sumpin’?” Fresh! I giggled. And then got REALLY embarrassed when I realized… He was just asking if I wanted another beer. Enter: STOCK PHOTO Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale Confession. I actually hated this beer the first… → Read More

Bitburger


Anyone care to guess what Germany’s number one draught beer is?  Let’s see, I heard Beck’s…wrong.  No, Lowenbrau’s not it either.  Heineken is Dutch, so that’s wrong.  Okay, okay stop yelling at the computer, I’ll tell you…it’s Bitburger! So you probably guessed that by the title of this post, but have you ever had one? … → Read More

Birra del Borgo 25 Dodici and Italy Christmas Beers


On Monday night I sat down to watch the Saints play the worst game they’ve played in a while against the Seahawks with a bottle of 25 Dodici from Birra del Borgo. The 25 Dodici definitely took the sting out of the Saints’ inept play in Seattle. Little did I know that we would be… → Read More

Blue Moon Belgian White


Blue Moon is possibly the most controversial beer at the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. Why the controversy? The Craft Beer Collection is featuring Blue Moon as one of its eight craft beers; however, the Blue Moon Brewing Company is a part of the Molson Coors conglomerate. Blue Moon was first brewed at… → 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

Blanche de Bruxelles


One of my new favorite beers. You surprised that it’s another wheat beer?  Yea, such a surprise right there!  Plus the cute tap doesn’t hurt. Makes us laugh each time.  The bartenders at this particular bar made the little statue a diaper b/c they were tired or staring at his nakedness.         … → Read More
