Kiuchi Brewery Hitachino Nest White Ale


Sapporo. Kirin Ichiban. Asahi. All Japanese. All thin, yellow, fizzy lagers. The land of the rising sun has a stereotype of poor beer. Kiuchi Brewery doesn’t believe it needs to be that way. Their line of Hitachino Nest ales are brewed using European technology and Japanese brewing methods and ingredients. The Hitachino Nest White Ale is… → Read More

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2014: The Beer


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

Dogfish Head Namaste


At the Craft Beer Collection booth for the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, a Dogfish Head brew will be served for the first time since we’ve started this site. Instead of another IPA, however, the Craft Beer Collection serves up a witbier called Namaste. Originally, Namaste was brewed with the head brewer from Birra… → Read More

Food and Wine’s Belgium Booth Misses the Target


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

Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit


Football season is back! Who doesn’t enjoy sitting back on the couch and drinking a beer while watching  your favorite team? Unless, of course, you’re actually going to the game! Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit is part of Abita’s Harvest series, which uses Louisiana-grown ingredients to add to the flavor of the beer. Here’s Abita’s description… → Read More

Samuel Adams Summer Ale


The summer seasonal from the Boston Beer Company is Samuel Adams Summer Ale. Referred to as an American wheat ale, its inspiration comes from Belgian witbiers (think Hoegaarden). Samuel Adams’ twist on the style includes lemon peel and Grains of Paradise. Summer Ale has a hazy golden color with a nose full of grain. Malty… → Read More

Unibroue Blanche de Chambly


Great news beer lovers! Bob Basl has reported to us that three Unibroue beers are now available outside of Le Cellier at the Canada Beer Cart. The three beers available are Éphémère, Trois Pistoles, and Blanche de Chambly. As with all the Unibroue beers, each one has a story. Traditionally, white ales are supposed be named… → 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

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

Samuel Adams Brewmasters Collection: Blackberry Witbier


Tonight’s beer is part of Samuel Adams’ Brewmasters Collection. Blackberry Witbier is an underwhelming brew in my opinion. It reminds me of Abita’s Purple Haze but with less flavor. Yes, Purple Haze is made with raspberries and this is made with blackberries, but the beers are very similar. Still, I’d grab a Purple Haze long… → Read More
