Craft Beers – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

This wasn’t our first stop at the Craft Beer Marketplace – Nick had stopped in on preview day, we stopped in with Walter and Nevie, and we stopped in again – partly to get out of the heat and because we had time to kill before our second Sake & Food Pairing.

We enjoyed the Spicy Pimento Cheese Dip on our visit with Walter and Nevie. Although we were tempted to get it again, we decided to try the Muffuletta Pinwheels…

These were soggy and rather flavorless. Could have used some green and black olives in them.

The pickles however, were very good. The pinwheels weren’t trash can bad, but they aren’t something we have any desire to repeat.

While there, we got the Beer Flight #1 (we’d had Beer Flight #2 with Walter and Nevie, nothing really spectacular there).

1. just a wheat beer; 2. yuck; 3. best one; 4. nothing special (easily attainable)

Two things:

  1. pours are really small
  2. these craft beers aren’t really anything special or unusual… anyone who likes craft beer has probably tasted these before

When it’s fresh (not soggy or stale), this is probably one of the best things at the Craft Beer Marketplace (excepting the quiet, calm, air-conditioned place to sit). The wasabi peas are good and the crasiins pick up some of the spice from the peas… nice.
