Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA


Yes, it’s time for another Samuel Adams beer that will be served at Hops and Barley during this year’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. Latitude 48 IPA is brewed year-round and is Sam Adams’ standard India Pale Ale. I like the idea behind this one; it’s called Latitude 48 because the three hop varieties… → 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

Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat


Another Samuel Adams brew found at Hops and Barley during the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Cherry Wheat is an interesting beer. The name pretty much describes the beer; it’s a wheat beer with dried cherries added. A beer with fruit isn’t particularly uncommon (Abita’s Purple Haze includes raspberries, for example), but the addition… → Read More

Wolaver’s Alta Gracia Coffee Porter


Unfortunately Wolaver’s website is under construction but I did a little digging to get you guys some back story about this brew…. The selling point of Wolaver’s Alta Garcia Coffee Porter is that they use organic coffee from the Costa Rican farming village of Alta Gracia. The organic coffee is grown by the farmers, and… → Read More

Hoegaarden


A witbier found at the Belgium booth during the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Hoegaarden Original Belgian Wheat Beer gets its name from the village of Hoegaarden in Belgium. The witbier style originated from this village; however, this beer was first brewed in 1965 by Pierre Celis, who tried to bring back the witbier after… → Read More

Southampton Double White Ale


Stopped by one of my favorite BBQ places in NYC and wanted something light and refreshing to wash down the grub.   Had heard of Southampton Publick House since they’re out of Long Island so I decided to give it a try.  From their website… Southampton Double White is a truly special brew and a Southampton… → Read More

The Lack of Beer Seminars at the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival


Alright, I get it. It’s the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, not the Food and Beer Festival. However, there are over 100 of what Disney refers to as “Wine/Beverage” Seminars at the 2011 festival. Out of these 100+ sessions throughout the entire length of the festival, a grand total of one  focuses on beer. I hope you beer… → Read More

Samuel Adams Cream Stout


Over at the Hops and Barley booth, the home of Samuel Adams for the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, one of the eight Samuel Adams varieties will be Cream Stout. Cream Stout is a very dark brown, almost black beer with a milk chocolate colored head; hold it up to the light and… → 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
