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
Spring has, well, not yet sprung, but Disney’s finally blessed us with the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival menus for the “outdoor kitchens” (read: booths). Let’s take a look at the beer! Disney starts off pretty well here with Florida Fresh. Here are four Florida beers, three of which aren’t usually found around the resort…. → Read More
Leffe Blonde, Leffe Brune, Hoegaarden, and Stella Artois. Seemingly a varied selection of beers for the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival’s Belgium booth. While they all are Belgian beers, they are also all owned by AB-InBev. While I have nothing against these particular beers, I also feel like Disney didn’t really try; they just… → Read More
Last week I took a week off from work and spent it in New Orleans. Among many other things, my wife and I got together with some friends and went out to The Avenue, a beer bar in the Garden District of New Orleans. This was my first visit (something Katie probably didn’t know when… → Read More
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

The local grocery store had a bunch of the limited release beers in stock so I picked a couple up. Griffin’s Bow is an oaked blonde barleywine. Toasted oak was put into the beer when it aged… → Read More
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
Shiner Blonde is the third beer I’m trying out of the Shiner Family Reunion six pack (previously tasted: Shiner Bock and Shiner Bohemian Black Lager). It’s a pale lager that to me doesn’t impart a whole lot of flavor. It’s a little sweet, a little malty, and a whole lot of meh. There’s nothing wrong… → Read More
Light, smooth and a bit of a bready flavor, Firemans #4 from Real Ale is very easy to drink. It would be good to cool off with on a hot summer day. This blonde ale is somewhat similar in flavor to Kona Longboard even though this is an ale while Longboard is a lager.
Here is Redhook’s Blonde offering!
