  • The annual passholders and ditzy collegiate guests have never had much of a problem getting trashed in the park if they really wanted to. Lots of nice places to lounge in the park and the hotels around it with a good environment and a bar.
  • I strongly recommend the german bier girls at epcot in florida

    das gut! das gut!
  • I'm not even a big beer aficionado and I can think of a half-dozen San Diego breweries off the top of my head that I like better than Karl Strauss.
  • If I was drunk... I would enjoy Disneyland.

    We have annual passes to Disneyland and I can confirm this. I can also confirm that "It's a Small World" is the worst place on the planet to be when you have a hangover.
  • It would be awesome if they served Pizza Port (beer) at Pizza Port (lame Disney restaurant)
  • Disneyland for adults. Now with 200% more Goofy!
  • The Anaheim Brewery product is pretty good. And joy of joys, I live 3 blocks from them.
  • I LOVE paying for beer at theme parks!
    You feel like you're at a baseball game!
  • No Stone? Drinking the last of my Sublimely Self-Righteous right now, a bit light for my tastes but damn it's got a lot of flavor.
  • Disneyland is turning into Portland, Oregon?!
  • I had The Breury's Loakal Red last time I was at CA Adventure. It was tasty.
  • Should have made a deal with Bootlegger's. Gooood stuff.
  • I don't think that is water

    I've found The Bruery's stuff to be pretty hit or miss. Their good stuff is really good, their bad stuff is really bad. Others at their tasting room seemed to agree the few times I've been- they find their pet beer and ignore the others.

    I agree with DeCypher44. Bootleggers is fine beer across the board. Yummy.
  • When my mom and I went on a road trip to Disney with the park hopper passes for a few days, the first thing I noticed was that California Adventure sold beer. I started trying to be subtle (and failing) "Mom, mom, mom! They have beer! And yummy foods!"

    So when I had sampled some of the wares, we decided to ride that one roller coaster ("one, two, three, everybody scream!"), the pukage when I staggered off that thing was epic. At least I made it to a trash can first. Others were not so skilled.

    I'm not so sure I should be proud of that, but I'll go with "at least I made coffee in our room every morning and didn't get arrested".If you set your goals low, you'll almost never be disappointed.

  • Why did I read that as "Disneyland to showcase local microbes"? Doesn't it do that already?

  • Here's the thing. At the original Disneyland, known as "The Magic Kingdom," there pretty much is no booze. Years ago it was possible for any guests to take the tram to the Disneyland Hotel, where you could booze it up at the pool bar or other bars at the hotel. These days, the tram is gone. It may still be possible to take the monorail to the hotel, I don't know, I've never tried.

    However, since the day California Adventure opened, it was always possible to buy booze at the park. There are beer vendors near Pacific Pier, and of course if you know about it, you can go into the lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel (make sure to get your hand stamped!) and visit the full bar. Even if you don't want to drink at all, the lobby of the Grand Californian is a spectacular place to visit. It is amazing. I don't care how much you hate Disney, this is a place worth seeing. And also, there is a full bar. There is also the new Carthay Circle restaurant, which has really good food, or just a bunch of small plate appetizer type things, and also, again, a full bar.

    I am a big fan of California Adventure, I really am. I know it's not exactly the same as the average Disney experience and I will always love the Magic Kingdom, but CA Adventure is more... and I realize how foolish this sounds when talking about anything Disney, but still... a bit more subtle? Certainly it's a lot more relaxed. I really think Disney shot the moon here. I also really liked the new additions that are supposed to be old L.A. Heck, some of the buildings they are playing off of are still extant.

    Listen, I know the many ways in which Disney is evil. But when it comes to theme parks, they do it up right. Is it an authentic experience, hell no. But I have the authentic experience of being in Los Angeles every day, and while I do love it, I still also enjoy the managed experience that Disney provides. It's hard to argue that they provide you with a really good time. (Especially if you visit, as we do yearly, on a very low admission day.)

    You mean Norway. I've fallen in love there numerous times
  • I thought it said Adventure Time theme park and got really excited.
  • Jesus, what would a craft beer at Disneyland cost you? Fifty bucks?
