Block and Hans
For a look at all of Epcot’s quick service reviews, see this post.
Block and Hans is the name of the covered kiosk on the right side of The American Adventure Pavilion, now specializing in draft beer, cider, and what is usually a seasonal cocktail.
For years, the kiosk served overpriced, ubiquitous beers like Bud Light and Yuengling. The options do switch out from time to time, so pull up Disney’s current menu at their site here.
The beer flight includes four 4-ounce pours of pre-determined beers, and is a good way to try a number of different offerings without committing to a lot of money or a lot of beer.
The cost per ounce is a little higher, but some may appreciate the variety. Cast members mark which beer is which so there shouldn’t be any surprises. Usually, Disney puts the beer in some random order and by the time you find somewhere to enjoy them, you may have forgotten which beer is which. The top two and bottom two look virtually identical.
Personally, I prefer to put together my own flight of full 12-ounce pours. Anything from Dogfish Head is worth trying. Those who enjoy beer may want to consider the local options. The breweries rarely distribute much farther than the city. The Kentucky Bourbon Ale is another award-winning option. You might start with the flight, pick a favorite, and then go back and double-fist your favorite for the walk towards the Japan or Italy Pavilions, both of which typically offer fewer quality beer choices.
For those who prefer something sweeter, Block and Hans offers a Frozen Lemonade. The recipe usually calls for a mixture of Monin Cotton Candy and Ole Smokey Blackberry Moonshine. It’s pre-mixed, which means the quality can vary. Still, it’s a good way to cool off and a nice option for those who aren’t into the beer and cider list.
Block and Hans was a bit of a revolution when it moved to a draft system a couple years ago. These days, Regal Eagle’s outdoor bar offers more selections on the cocktail front in particular. You can always visit both.
