I actually ate dinner at the irish place, but stopped in here as we were walking around downtown. Not sure I would have liked to have hung out here as it seemed a bit comtempory for me. Beer selection was nothing to brag about for sure. Typical macros with some Sierra Nevada and a few other bigger micros thrown in the mix. Still nothing to write home about here at all, but I guess in the context here it is decent. But I would not recommend going through here and searching out this place, but if you are downtown not bad.

I had lunch here one afternoon while in Central Florida, unaware that this would be considered a "beer bar" here on BA. Its hardly a destination for beer, but they had a couple decent beers.

Nothing has really changed from the reviews listed here for the past 5 years.. some macros, typical major-micros (Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Widmer, Yuengling) and a couple beers from Unibroue. Hiding on the top shelf, the bottle of La Fin du Monde caught my eye and sure enough the waitress said they had some. It came out with a pint glass, but I didn't complain since I already had an issue with my food (more below). She called it "one of those good beers" and I couldn't agree more.

Service was nice, though it was mid-afternoon at not busy at all. The place was nicely decorated and very clean, and our waitress really took care of us. I didn't like my first choice in food, so she took it back and let me get another dish, opting for the BBQ chicken pizza which was phenomenal. It's Wolfgang Puck, so of course the food is going to be good if you don't mind something a bit out of the ordinary. Of course, Wolfgang Puck + Disney property means its a bit pricey too. My lunch was about $15, and the beer was $7 (less than a lot of local places here), neither of which I mind paying for a quality beer.

The Wolfgang Puck cafe is a definite winner. Not the best selection, but the beer turns over and the food is tasty, so its easily one of the better places to have a beer at WDW. They really do everything here quite well - except beer.

A shocking find in Downtown Disney. If you've been to Pleasure Island you know that it's full of macro beers that are overpriced. Well Wolfgang Puck's might be a tad pricey but at least you can find some good beer here, ranging from nice imports and some very good US micros. I can't get Yuengling in Ohio, but it's all over this part of Florida.

The atmosphere is a bit trendy and flashy, but the service and food make up for the splash. This is the best beer spot in the Downtown.

I went in to grab lunch and kill some time before driving to the airport for my flight home. I sit at the bar to order food and maybe grab a beer. I see they have Widmer Brother's Hefe on draught. I've never had it so I order it. Had to ask for a non-chilled glass and it came in a pint glass with an orange wheel. Not unusual, not big deal. I start to look around. Well color me surprised, is that a La Fin Du Monde Magnum?!?! I start to immediately scan around and ask for a beer list. Sure enough they have La Fin and Blanche De Chambly in the bottle with the proper glassware! The bartender had only been there about two weeks, so he still had a lot to learn, but he was eager to list and learn.

On draught they had Bud, Mich Light, Kirin, Widmer Hefe, SN Pale Ale, Guinness, Bass, and Grolsch.

In bottles Bud & Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Light, Mich. Ultra, Yuengling, Ybor Gold, Blue Moon, Redhook Sunrye & Blonde, Dixie Blackend Voodoo, Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat and Light, Kirin Light, Amstel L., Corona, Heineken, Harp, Buckler, and of course the previously mentioned Unibroue La Fin Du Monde and Blanche De Chambley.

The food was very good. I had one of Puck's pizza's, they had a fresh sushi bar, and lots to choose from.

I was very surprise and impressed by their beer selection given that this is a trendy chain and in Downtown Disney.
