Florida Craft Beer

I love to support local Florida when I can. The Accomplice Brewery & Ciderworks out of West Palm Beach was on tap, so I sampled their hard cider.  It was so smooth and delicious.  Then, I sampled Florida Avenue Brewing Company’s Ale with citrus zest.  They are based out of Tampa.  The citrus zest added a bright, fresh zing to each sip.

Poutine

Poutine is a traditional Canadian dish, and it is oh so yummy! French fries are deliciously drenched with brown gravy, cheese curds, bacon bits, and green onions.  Stop by the Shark’s Kiosk to grab this dish.

Bison Slider

The bison slider is such a fun take on the traditional hamburger slider.  The slider is served with a lager bacon onion jam and Minorcan mustard.  That jam is phenomenal and enhances the bison.  Pick up your slider at the Shark’s Kiosk.

BBQ Brisket Mac n Cheese

The BBQ Brisket Mac n Cheese is Yum with a capital Y.  Classic elbow noodles are covered in a jalapeno cheddar pepper jack cheese sauce, BBQ Brisket, topped with a spiked BBQ sauce and a parmesan garlic crust.  Head over to the Waterway Bar to grab your bowl.

Candied Bacon Lollipops

What goes better with a cold beer than bacon?! The perfect portable festival snack is the candied bacon lollipop! Find this treat at the Christmas Market in front of Voyagers.

Overall Thoughts

Welcome fall in Orlando with the first annual Seaworld Orlando Craft Beer Festival. My favorites today were both Florida craft beers and that BBQ Brisket Mac N Cheese, but that is only the beginning. Some other goodies to try are the Beer Floats at Sea Harbor Soft Serve Market, Buffalo Burger Quesadilla at Flamecraft and the infused bacon pretzel at Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen.  To find out more information and to purchase your tickets, click here.  Are you planning on attending the festival?
