We need to talk about the Grapefruit beer from the Brewer’s Collection at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. In fact, we’re a little obsessed.
Sampling the beer the first time around was amazing. So we had to try it again to ensure it’s as good as we remember from a few weeks back. And the answer is…HELL YES!
To refresh your memory…the beer is SchöfferhoferGrapefruit. It’s light, fruity and simply delicious.
Since our initial visit, we felt it our duty to scour the internet to find the beer. FAIL.
We went to Total Wine, the mecca of alcohol in the Orlando area…FAIL. They seemed jealous of Disney’s connection and said they are very busy during Food & Wine Festival trying to track down all of these drinks that people coming in asking about from Disney. They had never heard of this beer and sounded intrigued.
We’re NOT giving up the fight!! So we’ll keep you posted if we can locate a place nearby. But here are some more details we found about the beer. (Also note, the company’s website is all in German, so not much use to us!)

The first authentic “radler” we have stocked - a blend of lemonade and cloudy wheat beer infused with real grapefruit juice. Historically brewed to refresh German cyclists without compromising the return journey, the Radler is tart and refreshing, with a low alcoholic strength, 2.5% ABV, which makes it a great beach or barbeque beer.
