Touring EPCOT at Night

Touring EPCOT at Night

EPCOT is a beautiful park during the day. At Night it becomes even more magical! We recently headed over for a day trip to the Food & Wine Festival. We grabbed a spot to watch Illuminations at 8:00, unknown to us the show was scheduled for 10:00 PM, not the usual 9:00. I took the chance to run around and get some pictures.

Hi there, I’m Beersolo (John Peters)

Hi there, I’m Beersolo (John Peters)

John Peters at the Brewer's Collection boothMy name is John Peters, I’m co-host of The Weekly Pint Podcast.  I’m going to give writing a blog a shot.  I grew up in Orlando, and other than an enlistment in the Navy, lived my entire life in Central Florida.  As a kid my local park was The Magic Kingdom.  My teenage jobs were at Wet-n-Wild and at WDW.  I was lucky enough to attend the soft openings for EPCOT, Animal Kingdom and Universal Studios.

We currently have annual passes to WDW and Universal.  Although I’ve been a Disney fan my entire life, it wasn’t until we bought DVC that I really geeked out.   We’ve stayed at most of the on-site Disney resorts and even stayed over at Universal a couple of times.

What I’d like to do with this blog is share some of the information that I have gathered through 45 years of theme park attendance.  Some of the topics that I plan on covering are best beer deals on property, touring the parks in an ECV, doing character M&Gs as an adult, things to be aware of before you move to Florida, touring the F&W fest, and hidden spots.

If you have any ideas or feedback, please send me a message!  Thanks! John

DisTalk Radio's Weekly Pint Podcast - Episode 5 - Brewer's Collection

John Peters checks in live from the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Brewer’s Collection kiosk, located between the Germany Pavilion and the Africa Outpost.

John had the Radeberger Zwickel Pilsner and the Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weise.  The kiosk now has a beer flight available. And in addition, they have added Norbetus back to the options.

Beer flights now consist of three beers, instead of four. Each beer is a 4 oz. pour for $4.00, individually.

A flight of three is $9.00 (a pretty good deal, since that’s a 25% discount).  You can substitute the Norbetus for any of the three that come standard with the flight.

During the podcast, his wife brought him a Schöfferhofer Zitrone Weizen-Mix. And John also talked about trying three beers from the Craft Beers Marketplace (located in the Odyssey Center): Concrete Beach Stiltsville Pilsner, 3 Daughters Bimini Twist IPA, and the Shipyard Midnight Snack Milk Stout.
