Food & Wine Festival..Beers From Around The World..

Ok folks...Sorry if this has been discussed in the past...Reason I bring it up is I'am looking forward to this festival in October..Now when it comes to food..Forget it..My hobbies are cooking and baking and my favourite room in our house is the kitchen..Enough said...So to the drink side of this festival..As far as wine goes,again I know what I like when it comes to reds and whites...But it's the beer that's kinda new to me..I got panned ( in a friendly manner ) years ago, by fellow Americans when they heard my choices at Disney..Bud...Coors..Bud Light...So I took their advice on my last trip in 2012...And I tried my first Blue Moon, complete with added slice of orange, eek ...Weird but wonderful..So now to my question..All you beer experts out there..What are your favourites at the F & W festival..?..Once I get your choices,I shall note them down in my trusty Passporter's book..Many thanks..

I didn't drink much while there due to fears of dehydration but I did try the Schofferhofer Grapefruit as a novelty. It's was a nice change but I am not much of a drinker and when I do I prefer a simple Gin and Tonic.

Get yourself to the Belgium Stall..
Last year they were selling Leffe Blonde and Brune.
I was absolutely gutted that they had no Brune left, but still revelled in the smooth taste in the Florida heat.

Not exclusive to the F&W per se... my all time favourite at WDW is Altemunster Oktoberfest beer at the Trinken cart in Germany.

Sooooo gooooood. Beer

Also in the Belgium location is Hoegaarden, if you liked Blue Moon you will love Hoegaarden (in my humble opinion). Also if they have it the chocolate bock by Sam Adams is a good dessert beer in the US pavilion

I'm not a beer drinker. Hubby, however, has tried several of the Belgian beers offered at F&W and enjoyed them all, especially the darker ones. And he too was bummed once when he discovered the dark beer was gone.

DH was attached to the beers and ears app this week wink i think he checked off 26 new beers that he tried! (Split with my dad usually) eek But it was very handy with the map feature as he could look at his phone and it would guide him from one stand to the other wink

Grrr, short of buying a new phone, does anyone know if there is an android app for this?
DH offered to put it on his iPad, but he's not going to carry it around and I would on my phone.
