At the 2010 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Craft beer was a significant part of last year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and it looks like it will return this year.

In 2010, the foodie fest featured a “15 Beers for 15 Years” booth with some really great craft beers at the Disney World park. It’s still uncertain if some form of that will return.

My friend AJ over at the The Disney Food Blog (a great site that I highly recommend) recently interviewed Marianne Hunnel, area manager, event content cevelopment for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Last year’s 15 Beers for 15 Years was a huge success, and craft beers are making a comeback this year. “Eight craft beers from around North America will be featured. One will be Canadian, but the rest, including IPAs, are from other parts of USA,” says Hunnel.

A Brewer’s Collection biergarten at the Germany pavilion, with a variety of brews from that country, was another highlight last year, and several other crafts and imports were scattered throughout the festival.

I’ll post more news about the craft beer at the festival as I hear about it.

The 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival will take place September 30 to November 12.
