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

Kronenbourg 1664


It’s been a looooooonnggg day. I have been working for months on National Bracket Day, to encourage people to fill out brackets today. Been up since 4 am today. So this Kronenbourg is my reward for a hard day, and man is it good. It’s a lighter lager, and very smooth. You can find this… → Read More

Bass Ale


Scott prodded me, so here’s my 3rd beer of the evening, a Bass Ale. My first Bass was at the Harry Ramsden’s fish and chips shop in World Showcase. It was not my last. I don’t usually like Pale Ales, but Bass is different. It is one of my backups with any situation. When I… → Read More

Sapporo fireside


Second beer from the sampler is Sapporo, a favorite from Japan. We decided to sit outside in this nice weather, and enjoy a fire. I first ran across Sapporo at the Japan pavilion at Epcot, and loved it. Great with some sushi!

Beer Sampler night


It’s a good night in our house, as I stopped at Publix on the way home and picked up a 6 pack beer sampler. The idea is that they have single bottles of different beers, and you pick your own sixpack. So I did. My first selection was a Warsteiner, a beer I love. It’s… → Read More

Warsteiner, Blue Moon, Strongbow and Longboard


Tonight’s selections from the Taco Mac? I began with a Warsteiner, a fine lager with a hint of bitter, while the wife stuck with Ol’ Reliable, her favorite Blue Moon. Second? She decided on a Strongbow Cider. Me? I went with a longtime fave from the Tambu Lounge at the Polynesian – Longboard! It’s a… → Read More

Taco Mac – Beer Lovers Heaven


Just down the street from my house, and in locations across the wide expanse of metro Atlanta lies Taco Mac. It is a beer lover’s paradise. Here’s a picture of only the draught beer menu. There’s nearly 100 beers on tap. Try double that available in bottles. And people wonder why we love coming here…. → Read More

Casa from Tangeriene Cafe


My favorite World Showcase beer, and one you can’t find (or I can’t) outside the World, is Casa, from Morocco. It’s light, refreshing and quite smooth. I adore it.

Harp Lager from Yorkshire County Fish Shop


My 2nd fave beer in World Showcase, and favorite at home is Harp Lager. My love affair started right here at the UK pavilion, and it’s a must do for me whenever I’m here.
