PHOTOS: Block & Hans Reopens Serving Draught Beers at Epcot’s American Adventure

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

The Block and Hans kiosk has returned to the American Adventure pavilion at Epcot just in time for the 2018 Food and Wine Festival! With the return come some welcomed changes: themed elements and draught beer!

The inside of the kiosk was spruced up quite a bit and it fits in much better with the surrounding pavilion, but we’re not going to play dumb like that’s why you clicked on this story…

While you can still get come canned beer here, there are 4 items available on draught: the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, Ciderboys Strawberry Magic Hard Cider, and the Full Sail Brewing Co. Blood Orange Wheat Ale.

So, what will you be ordering?

Hurry folks….. what will you be ordering!

Because NOTHING says “American Adventure” more then an outside kiosk selling Alcoholic Beverages!

So drink hardy, and stagger on over to the American Adventure to see the show while you can still stand and walk straight without stumbling.

Watch out kids, that staggering man may fall, or he might vomit on you.

You are CORRECT…. I have TONS of friends!

In large part because I am HONEST, and do the right thing for the right reasons.

And point out things which are wrong when they are wrong whether you agree with it or not; food for thought.

That’s all just your opinion Randyland, and you are certainly entitled to it. But that doesn’t mean its “right” or “wrong”. Ease up on the self righteousness! This is supposed to be a fun and informative site.

I am an honest man who sees the damage being created as a wonderful place is being desecrated, and core values are being tossed out the window, all in the pursuit of more profits. You don’t like hearing the truth, fine, so your answer is to try personal attacks against me. Try addressing the issues, and explain why it is acceptable to spring up kiosks all around selling alcoholic beverages in Disney World, which was based as a non alcoholic park from day one as foundation principles.

Alcoholic beverages are beverages, and as such are a part of the cuisine of a country. A country’s cuisine is very much a part of it’s culture. Part of the immersion of the World Showcase is (and always was) the cuisine, and that includes the alcoholic beverages native to that area. Furthermore, just because somebody wants to have a drink, doesn’t mean they are going to vomit on young children. That statement is ludicrous. As bartenders are trained to identify guests who should not have additional beverages, so are CMs to prevent that occurrence. But I’m curious, have you witnessed… Read more »

The idea that alcoholic beverages which were “native to that area” was the EXCUSE given at the beginning of Epcot to BREAK THE RULE of NO Alcohol being served in any Disney Park…. And with that they were ONLY served in the Restaurants, and the Rose and Crown Pub. This has CHANGED, and over the recent decade, OUTDOOR stands have been created to sell more and more Alcohol. It has changed the atmosphere, and outdoor “bands” were added to create that “party” feeling and encourage a meeting area for Guests who want to HANG OUT with drinks in hand, and… Read more »

In the last decade you also have had a greater appreciation for the culinary craft, including beverages. This includes craft cocktails, increased wineries, and the surge of craft breweries around the United States. This appreciation begets the realization that people can enjoy the taste of these drinks, rather than drinking them to get drunk. I’m going to assume that you do not drink regularly, so you may be unfamiliar with the type of beers these are. These are not Bud Light, or something that someone drinks to drink quickly and have another. These are far richer in taste, and are… Read more »

You think because the outside would has become a place where more and more alcohol is consumed, that makes it acceptable to change the moral foundation of a place based upon a man’s life and dreams? People smoke pot, and there are movements to make it legal everywhere, should that be sold and promoted in the parks too? How about prostitution? Legal in some places… Perhaps areas that sell this service for Guests to enjoy while on vacation?? It comes down to the fundamental morals on which everything was based upon. There once was a time that DIsney set the… Read more »

You are constantly contradicting yourself. Mentioning the price of a cupcake – do people eat 8-10 cupcakes a day? No, they don’t no matter their wealth. And thank you, I do see the big picture. That this is a place for enjoyment, which everyone else seems they can do. I like music, always have and always will. I can go into the big picture there of how societies have historically used music to portray their culture, but I don’t have the time. Music isn’t evil like you’re saying. Look, if you choose to be bitter and focus on the negatives,… Read more »

No one knows Disney better then I do. I was there from the beginning; were you? I have seen what has changed, and you only know what was presented to you in you period. What I speak is only truth. You do not have to agree with me, or think that I am correct. It makes no difference to me whether you stand there drinking until you vomit, or whether you eat those dozen cupcakes… Or anything else for that matter…. I express the way I see things ONLY so that some people may look at things through my eyes… Read more »

Alcohol prohibition was never a foundation principle of Walt Disney World. The principle you’re referring to is that Walt (a daily scotch drinker, btw) didn’t want people to confuse his new concept of the theme park (Disneyland) with the low class traveling carnival, which often had drunks in attendance. It was crucial that people didn’t assume that Disneyland was some permanent carnival set up in Anaheim, thus no booze. Now thanks to Walts efforts, the concept of the the theme park is solidified, and I can enjoy a beer in Epcot without having to worry about the unsafe and dirty… Read more »

Well, technically Disneyland served alcohol if you want to count private VIP areas where corporate smooshing went on. But the concepts were always a family place where a party was nice cream cake and soda with entertainment being a clown. If you think the crowds are the same as they were 47 years ago with the opening, I hope you enjoy you drink with that illusion. But if you open you eyes to look around at the gang hanging out with you at that party with drinks, you might be surprised to see that guy you feared at the carnival.… Read more »

Anything opinion based I’m all for. It’s when things that are an opinion are presented as facts, facts are wrong (such as timelines), or there is a misunderstanding and subsequent judgement passed with an air of self righteousness that I take issue. This last post, including your bible references, were actually on the same page about a lot of it. However, you jump to the conclusion again that just because I don’t see anything wrong with alcohol being served that I’m going to be gluttonous and over imbibe. That’s not true though – the most I’ve ever had in a… Read more »

EPCOT has sold beer and alcohol for over 30 years.

If this is somehow still shocking and horrifying for you after three decades, maybe you should find a different park to visit.

Alcohol was sold ONLY in the themed restaurants and the Rose and Crown Pub at the World Showcase from the beginning, and it was shocking from the start. The excuse was to create the theme of countries which had culture of wine and beer for theming.

There were never OUT DOOR kiosks pushing the sales of booze before the last decade, and the expansion is not shocking, it is disgusting.

Fred

Yes, alcohol was served in the restaurants, the Rose & Crown Pub, and the outdoor pub area in Germany, as you say, to fit the theme of cuisines from around the world that serve alcohol, since it’s considered part of culture all over the world, including America.

Yes, there were absolutely outdoor kiosks selling alcohol “before the last decade”. They’ve been doing it in outdoor kiosks for nearly 20 years.

I understand that you are, for some strange reason, shocked by people drinking beer. But now you’re blatantly lying.

I think you need to find a new theme park to visit.
