2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Review: Palm Spéciale


Belgium. You’ve heard me complain about the lackluster selection at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival’s Belgium booth for years. For years it’s been fully populated by AB-InBev beers and Disney hasn’t really tried to make it any better, despite Belgium being one of the greatest beer countries in the world. Palm, however, is not… → Read More

Did somebody say punk? [responsive_youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02D2T3wGCYg] Perhaps something more recent? [responsive_youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2zfwTqpqVg] Today is the beginning of the 2015 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! Let’s talk. First, the Food and Wine Festival Beer List and iOS app are updated. A couple of locations are still being pinned down, so the locations may shift in the next… → Read More

2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Review: SweetWater Take-Two Pils


Did you miss me? It’s not like I’ve been radio silent; I’ve been posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. However, the site itself is long overdue for a new article, so let’s get on with it. Have you heard the full menus for the 2015 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival are up? I’m going to… → Read More

Bear Republic Grand-Am American Pale Ale


Some say that Racer 5 and Grand-Am are brewed just for Cars Land… .@traveljenn @DisneylandToday neither are brewed just for Cars Land FYI. They're @BearRepublic products that can be purchased anywhere. — Beers and Ears (@beersandears) May 4, 2015 This ends today’s lesson in “don’t believe everything you read on Twitter”. However, Bear Republic products… → Read More

Conveniently, the Resort Monorail loop will take you to the Contemporary, Polynesian, and Grand Floridian resorts for a monorail bar crawl. If you’re staying at one of these resorts, just hop on the Resort… → Read More

2015 Flower & Garden Beer Reviews – Take 1


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

Presenting the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament Champion!


It’s been two weeks since we started the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament and we have a champion! A few comments from Twitter: .@beersandears as much as I enjoy Chimay Blue, I'm pulling for DFH90. They're my kind of people. http://t.co/UuSg7I72HM #DisneyBeer2015 — Jason Heger (@Nissan_Rogue_sq) April 2, 2015 Me: I wish there was a beer… → Read More

The 2015 Disney Beer Tournament – Championship Round


It’s finally time for two beers to try to bring home the bacon. To be honest, the polls were pretty decisive from the start. These two beers started out in the lead and never relinquished it. Let’s get right to it. First, on the left side of the bracket… Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA never… → Read More

The 2015 Disney Beer Tournament – Fifth Round


We’re down to the Final Four beers in the 2015 Disney Beer Tournament! Sometime late Saturday night or Sunday, a post on Facebook started getting shared around. I haven’t seen this post personally, but the large influx of views from Facebook, the random comments on the site, and the voting all showed that there was… → Read More

What's Hot

Kingfisher Premier Lager


THE beer to drink while in India, so who are we to argue?  Plus the imports were obscenely expensive (relative to Kingfisher) so we stuck to the local stuff. The Kingfisher brand is ALL over India. Someone related it to how Virgin is everywhere by us. There’s Kingfisher Beer, Kingfisher Airline, etc. And yes, you… → Read More

Chimay Grande Reserve (Blue)


Remember when I went to Be Our Guest Restaurant and tried a Saison Dupont? It’s not #ConfessFriday, but here’s a confession: I almost had a Chimay Grande Reserve instead. Probably the most popular of the Chimay trappist ales is Grande Reserve, more commonly known as Chimay Blue. Grande Reserve was first brewed as a Christmas beer… → Read More

App Review: Untappd


I never thought I would be doing an app review for Beers and Ears, but here we are.  Untappd, to put it simply, is Foursquare for beer.  Honestly, this is something I was hoping GetGlue would have added a long time ago; GetGlue currently tracks wine check-ins but not beer.  However, Untappd is a more… → Read More

Beer Souvenirs at Walt Disney World


If you’re like me, you’re not a fan of the generic year merchandise and the stuff you can find at nearly every store in Walt Disney World. With the generally family-friendly atmosphere of Walt Disney World, I wasn’t expecting to find much in the way of beer-related souvenirs. To my surprise, this wasn’t exactly the case…. → Read More

crawlDisney: Beers Around the World (Showcase)


Last updated April 27, 2015 Drinking around the world at Epcot. It’s become almost an attraction in itself over the years, but what if you’re interested in drinking beer around the world instead of all those frou-frou drinks? The good news is all of the World Showcase pavilions serve beer. However, not all of them… → 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

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

Bohemia


From the Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma Brewery in Mexico, the brewer responsible for Sol, Dos Equis, Tecate and others, comes Bohemia. Bohemia is a pilsner that gets its name from the region that is now part of the Czech Republic. This region is well known for its brewing and is the birthplace of the pilsner. Bohemia is a… → Read More

Tin Roof Brewing Co. Blonde Ale


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
