The Beer Hop at the 2009 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

I’ve been reading questions posted on the various Disney Forums and I saw that folks had questions about “The Beer Hop” at the 2009 Epcot Food & Wine Festival. This experience has replaced the Wine Walkabout from previous festivals.  I was in World Showcase the other night, and while I did not participate in The Beer Hop, an extremely nice Cast Member named Pete gave me a voided Beer Hop Passport so that I could share the specifics of the experience with all of you.  The Beer Hop is going to run you $12 and you are going to get to sample 4 different 4oz. pours.  Below you will find the contents of the Beer Hop Passport:
