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

Did somebody say punk? [responsive_youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02D2T3wGCYg] Perhaps something more recent?

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

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

Improving the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Craft Beer Collection Booth


Now that we’ve had some time for the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival menu to settle in, let’s take a closer look at the Craft Beer Collection booth. It’s a decent selection, but with some changes in the lineup it could be easily improved. Here’s what is being served: Abita Purple Haze Blue Moon… → Read More

Norther Brewer

Heineken


Aroma:    Not as skunky as I was expecting. Almost no skunky aroma. There is plenty of sweet pale malt aroma with some corn sweetness. Light floral presence in the nose, but if this beer gets too much light those hops oils will convert to skunk. Note, drink fast if you’re outside or the sun… → Read More

Dogfish Head Aprihop


Happy Easter! Each year in the spring Dogfish Head releases Aprihop as its seasonal beer. After dyeing eggs with the kids last night, I sat down and enjoyed one of these. Aprihop isn’t just a beer that should be consumed in the month of April; it’s named for the apricots the beer is brewed with…. → Read More

Houston Beer Fest 2012


On Saturday, June 9, 2012, the second annual Houston Beer Fest was held in downtown Houston. I couldn’t make it the first year (Lindsay and Jackie tried to go, more on that in a minute), but this year my schedule was wide open and I was outside of City Hall drinking lots of delicious beer…. → Read More

Devil Dog Imperial IPA


And hello. You probably don’t remember me seeing as how my motivation to write blog posts is somewhat like my motivation to clean this house after a party. So you know, not there. As I experiment with other beers instead of relying solely on Lagunitas to fuel my alcoholism, I find that, man, there are… → Read More

Virtual Tasting – Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Kronenbourg 1664


Today we present a new feature on Beers and Ears. Since we are spread across the United States, most of us can’t be in the same place at the same time to have beer tastings. Instead, we decided to have virtual tastings where each of us obtains the beer locally, tries it, writes a little… → Read More

Tin Roof Brewing Co. Blonde Ale


Happy Independence Day! Today’s review is one you won’t find in a Disney park, but it’s one that I’ve been personally interested in trying for a while because Tin Roof’s home is Baton Rouge, LA. Baton Rouge is also home to my alma mater, LSU.  Tin Roof was founded in 2010, after I had graduated,… → Read More

New Belgian Fat Tire


Fat Tire is an amber ale and Lindsay’s self-proclaimed first beer love. It’s a fairly standard amber ale with a hint of spice. Definitely one I could buy a six pack of and have a few at one time. It also just so happened that my TRON and TRON: Legacy Blu-Rays came in the mail… → Read More

If you’ve used our Walt Disney World Beer List iPhone app, the Beers and Ears Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Beer… → Read More

Samuel Adams Scotch Ale


Here is something a little different. An ale with four malts. One of them is a rare peat-smoked malt used in Scotch whiskies…giving the beer a smoky flavor.
