Mardi Gras has passed us by this year, but the local supermarket still had some of Abita’s springtime seasonal brew on hand. A helles bock, Abita’s Mardi Gras Bock is a great choice for Mardi Gras; 6.5% ABV in a light, smooth beer works well on the streets of New Orleans during Carnival. This has… → Read More
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
Tonight I’ve brought a little bit of the Polynesian Resort home with me by drinking a Longboard Island Lager from Kona Brewing Co. Light, smooth, and malty best describes this beer. Longboard is very easy to drink, which is probably why it’s a favorite on the beaches of the Poly! Longboard is one of 110… → Read More
When in Maryland….this is a tasty Baltimore label. Smooth drink…not too hoppy. I’d definitely pick this up again.
Find this tasty treat at the Mara at Jambo House at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I enjoyed this beer; the atmosphere of being by Boma (seen in the background) could have helped. Perfect beer for when we were waiting for our room to be ready before hitting the parks.
Trying to stay away from the typical Bud and/or Miller in the American Adventure Pavilion, we went with the trusty Samuel Adams Seasonal, which was their Winter Lager. I’m a fan of beers that have a slight spice to them and enjoyed this one. Might actually like it better than their Oktoberfest! Paired it with… → Read More
Presenting Abita Andygator, a Helles Doppelbock from Abita Springs, LA. For a very long time, Andygator was only available on tap and somewhat rare; however, within the last couple of years Abita started bottling this delicious brew. It only comes in the bomber bottle filled with over a pint of 8% alcohol content beer. This… → Read More
Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager is brewed around this time every year. Each year Abita adds strawberry puree from the strawberries grown in Ponchatoula, LA to this limited batch of beer. Unfortunately, I’m not very satisfied with this year’s brew. It has a musty scent and an unusual taste to match. Did I just get a… → Read More
Our first official stop while Drinking Around the World was La Cava del Tequila where I started off with a tequila flight. I’ll skip that review and just move right along to Norway! Stopped off at the beer kiosk and we all grabbed a Carlsberg. Apparently Carlsberg is actually from Denmark, and NOT Norway. No… → Read More
While I was at the store today, I picked up a six-pack of Harp. Knowing that it’s one of Ryan’s favorite beers, I was hoping for good things. It poured a nice golden color with a head that dissipated fairly quickly. However, on my first sip I could only think of one thing: Bud Light…. → Read More
