Do you really go to a food and wine or beer festival for the food?
While the food is important we all know that on a hot day in Florida, the wine and beer tend to take no backseat to the food that is being served. In fact, you could say you can build up an appetite from the alcohol.
The beer was flowing in clear skies and 90-degree weather that is for certain. The biggest disappointment is that while there are plenty of beer options at Epcot from pineapple ciders to dark lagers and so on, not having better options from each country is disappointing. I don’t need a micro-brew that is from Key West while I’m standing outside of Canada. That is a bit of an exaggeration but why was I not seeing beer or drinks from that nation specifically?
While SeaWorld isn’t a wine festival they do have over 100 options in the craft-beer festival they are promoting and they really went a little further with making beer a focal part of the food as well. Beer-braised pork, beer-battered onion rings, and so on. The beer doesn’t have to be international because it isn’t billed as such and that works well. The lacking options of knowing where different types of beers were located wasn’t a good idea but overall, it was beer and that is what you went in for.
