Must admit that the idea of grapefruit beer kinna gacks me out, but I will try almost anything once.
That, in fact, is why I love the Food & Wine Festival

It's tastes more like a wine cooler / malt beverage, or a 'Mikes Hard' Grapefruit than a beer. It also has a very low alcohol content. It seemed to be a big hit last year, but definately not to my tastes.

Yes, it's more like pop than beer Even I can drink it. And it's DELISH, by the way. We have some in the fridge right now, in fact!

Do you know if it can be bought by the case from Disney or elsewhere? I'm going to be quite pregnant when we arrive and will unfortunately not get to taste it when DH does! We missed it last year, as it was sold out...

DH and I are hoping to go to the Party for the Senses on Oct 12. Right now we have a backup reservation at Flying Fish if we can't get tickets.

We get it from our local Binny's (great big liquor store chain). Don't know if they have national distribution.

No, not like Fresca really. More grapefruity. Fresca doesn't taste like real grapefruit to me.

Reservations for F & W Special Events begin on 8/13!

Disney Parks Blog has an article posted about this year's F&W special events. Reservations will begin on 8/13.

Quote:
The all-important number to keep handy: 407/WDW-FEST (939-3378). Some of the popular events sell out fast, and there are new events this year, too, during the 46-day fest. From the over-the-top Party for the Senses grand tasting experience on select Saturday nights to a new taste of Scottish cuisine, there are lots of opportunities. Price per ticket:

New Scotland, Land of Food And Drink (Sept. 28), $95 or $115
New Spirits Confidential (Nov. 1), $80 or $95
New Parisian Breakfast (Saturdays), $37
New Hibachi Experience (Oct. 8, 15, 22, 29, Nov. 5), $120
3D Disneys Dessert Discovery (Oct. 4, 11 and 25), $55 or $90
Epcot Wine Schools (Sept. 29, Oct. 27, Nov. 3), $135 per person
Culinary Adventures in Signature Dining (more than 25 dinners throughout the festival; prices vary)
Mixology Series: Taste, Shake and Indulge Like the French (Saturdays), $65
Kitchen Memories (Sept. 27, Oct. 4, 11, 18, 25, Nov. 1, 8), from $110-$170
Cheese Seminars (Sept. 28, Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26, Nov. 2, 9), $80
Party for the Senses (Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26 and Nov. 2), $145, $180 or $285
Food & Wine Pairings (Tuesdays, Thursdays), $55
Sweet Sundays (Sept. 29, Oct. 6, 13, 20, 27, Nov. 3, 10), $99
The Discovery of Chocolate (Oct. 13 and 27), $75

Additional events include Italian and French pairings and lunches, and a Mexican tequila lunch. Guests also can book special festival experiences including daily Culinary Demonstrations ($14), Mixology Seminars ($15) and Wine, Beer or Spirit Seminars ($14). Inside-the-park festival dining experiences as well as culinary and beverage programs require park admission fees. Event updates and details will be posted on the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Facebook page in August.

Hoping that the French Regional Lunches will be ones we like for our early November trip! So glad to see them coming back!

It's only a $35 difference from no seats, per person. Plus tax of course. I'm going for the seat I think. I will have to call on the 13th even if that is the only thing I book, because the seats will go fast.
