Walt Disney World Food And Wine Festival 2011

J and I picked the worst day for the Food and Wine Festival. Not only was it cold and windy (for Florida) but it was packed. We have annual passes and go to Epcot regularly, I have never seen this many people there ever.

We made do and decided that drinking lots of beer would be the best way to warm up.

In Canada we had Cheddar Cheese Soup and Moosehead Beer. That soup never fails to impress. If you are in Epcot, I highly recommend eating at Le Cellier.

They had a cranberry bog which was new this year. It kind of reminded me of home, we have a lot of these in New England.

I asked J if he would take a picture of me because I am never in any of our pictures.

The first was taken before I realized he was taking one. He found this hilarious.

Next one was fine.

My favorite beer of the day was the Kona Pipeline.

The description from their website:

Pipeline Porter is smooth and dark with a distinctive roasty aroma and earthy complexity from its diverse blends of premium malted barley. This celebration of malt unites with freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee grown at Cornwell Estate on Hawaii’s Big Island, lending a unique roasted aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops rounds out this palate-pleasing brew.

You could smell and taste the coffee flavor. This may be my new favorite beer.

Our last food stop was in America. We had the lobster roll, lobster claw, and the pumpkin moose. The beer is the Sam Adams brewed yearly for the Food and Wine Festival.

I had to include my favorite view in all of Epcot.

This is a view from the bridge leading into France. It is also the spot where J proposed.

What’s your favorite beer?

  1. Favorite beer? Wow. Stoudt’s Hefer-In-Wheat, London Pride, Yuengling Lager, Leinkugel’s Summer Shandy, Bulmer’s Pear Cider (I know, I know…), Lancaster Brewing Company Shoe-Fly Porter, Lancaster Brewing Company’s Chocolate Covered Strawberry (Strawberry Wheat mixed with Milk Stoudt), and just about anything blueberry. :-)

    • That soup is so good. We try to eat at Canada when we go to Epcot but it is nearly impossible to get reservations there (unless you plan ahead and we never seem to do so.)

  2. Food and Wine was amazing. We went Sunday and it was not to busy at all. We were actually surprised because all of our friends talked about how busy the weekends had been. I guess we lucked out. I loved the Pumpkin Mousse too!
