Can you have a festival without beer? I think not. At the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, brews will be available in many locations. Get your thirst quenched at the Craft Beer Booth, Brewer’s Collection, and the Hops and Barley Marketplace. Many individual countries will also be serving up their own beer, and there will likely be beer seminars on the docket in the Festival Center.
That said, many beer enthusiasts are less than thrilled with the offerings at this year’s Festival, mentioning the lack of more obscure and unique craft beers. We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below!

Morocco Bar Menu
Yes, it’s brewed and bottled in Casablanca! Casa Beer will be served at the Morocco booth.

Stop by Mexico for Dos Equis beer deemed “the most interesting toast in the world”!
Japan Bar Menu
Kirin draft beer will be on tap in Japan! Did you know that beer is sold in vending machines in Japan?
Italy Bar Menu
Birra Moretti (Moretti Beer) boasts being the only Italian beer to hold top prestigious beer awards. Stop by Italy to do your own taste test!
Ireland Bar Menu
Ireland will fill your mug with the deep, dark Guinness Draught. It’s the roasted, unmalted barley which gives this brew its burnt flavor.
Hawaii Bar Menu
Surf’s up in Hawaii when you partake in a Kona Longboard or Pipeline Beer. And unless you grab a bite to eat, you’ll be hangin’ loose before you reach the next stop on your World Showcase tour. Islanders like to pair their Pipeline beer with a hearty meal!
Germany Bar Menu
Germany will serve the deep golden-colored Radeberger Pilsner and the Bavarian Altenmünster Dunkel.
China Bar Menu
Tsingtao Beer is on the menu in China, of course. This beer was first brewed in 1903.
Canada Bar Menu
Our neighbors to the north are known for hockey and beer! Thus, there’s no surprise that Canada has Moosehead Beer on tap!
Belgium Bar Menu
The well known wheat beer, Hoegaarten, or the brew Leffe will soothe your spirit at the Belgium booth.
