Via Napoli


In order to tell my Via Napoli story, it’s important I start with the end. After the meal, our waiter returned with the check, but instead of the check inside there was a slip of paper with “Compliments of Eric” written inside. For those of you who don’t know, Eric Bandauski is the mastermind behind… → Read More

Full Out Disney: A Toast to SpectroMagic


I’m starting a new series on B&E. Sorry I didn’t tell you first Katie. The question has been raised in the past whether we’re a Disney site that focuses on beer or a beer site that focuses on Disney. To me at least it depends on the day, although there’s a subtle difference. Today, however,… → Read More

River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans Riverside


After Chef Mickey’s we came back to Port Orleans – Riverside to get the kids settled into bed. However, there were additional matters to take care of on our first night in the World. A couple of weeks prior to our trip, my sister’s boyfriend decided he would propose on the trip, and the first… → Read More

Karbach Brewing Co. Roll in the Hay


Just released from Karbach Brewing Co. is Roll in the Hay! Karbach took their delicious Barn Burner Saison (I first tried it at Houston Beer Fest 2012) and aged it in chardonnay barrels (something our new sister site might be more familiar with) for about 6 months. Ardent followers of Karbach may have noticed that Roll in the… → Read More

Pleasure Wineland!


Big news today, we officially have a sister site!

Schöfferhofer Grapefruit is Back!


I was walking through World Showcase after dinner at Via Napoli Monday night (more on that later) and wandered into the Germany pavilion next door. Once inside the Germany pavilion I briefly looked over at the stand with the best name in all of Walt Disney World. Seriously, it’s called Bier. It’s so obvious that… → 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

Napa Smith Organic IPA


I’m back! Fresh off a 7 night stay at Port Orleans Riverside, in the upcoming weeks I’ll be writing about dining, attractions, whatever else might come to mind at the moment, and of course beer. Let’s start with the beer I had with my meal at Chef Mickey’s. I’ll save Chef Mickey’s itself for another… → Read More

Southern Star Black Crack


Just under an hour north of downtown Houston is a town called Conroe, TX. It’s still considered part of the Houston metro area, but it’s a bit far out there. Anyway, Conroe is the home of Southern Star Brewing Company, who has been in operation since 2007. Similar to Karbach, Southern Star packages its year-round… → Read More

Scott’s June Walt Disney World Trip: The Extras


With under two weeks to go, the Magical Express tags are here and it’s only a matter of packing and time before we head to Disney World! I’m starting to get in that stage of checking and rechecking to make sure we have everything (even though in some cases I know I already have it)…. → Read More
