During the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Via Napoli in Italy will once again be hosting its Food and Beer pairing events. Each Tuesday during the Food and Wine Festival from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM, the chefs of Via Napoli will prepare four dishes and each dish will be paired with an Italian craft beer!

Each session is $55 per person, and Eric at Via Napoli told me there are about five seats still available for each session.

Here are the menus, with the name of the course followed by the beer paired with it.

If you’ve been looking at the Via Napoli events and wondering what you’d be getting into, now you know! I had the Caos when I was at Via Napoli in June and it was very good; I’ve also tried the Dogfish Head version of My Antonia recently (review coming soon!) and it’s probably the best pilsner I’ve had.

Personally, if I were going to be at Disney World during Food and Wine this year (unfortunately I can’t make it back out), I would be going to one of these.

    Ok we need to discuss the schedule with the powers that be for next year’s festival. The Nov 5th event is TWO days before I arrive for the final weekend of the festival and for the half marathon! Not cool guys, not cool. I want that gelato!


  • Eric Bandauski

    @Jenn, stop in and ask, we might have a little left, we are making a large batch, so fingers crossed, maybe some leftovers!!!


  • Tom

    This is a very good event and well worth the money. We did it last year and will be back again on Oct 22. The beers served are the best you will find at Epcot (along with Unibroue at Cellier).


  • Keith

    Same here Jenn…we’ll be coming in on Friday for the Wine & Dine.


  • Nick

    Awesome preview! I’m attending this on October 1st, and I’m very excited to see My Antonia on there. I’ve also had the Dogfish Head version, and agree with your opinion of it.
    I’ll be doing a review of this event, as well as a review of your excellent apps on my blog.
