I may have been in Disney World to run a marathon (my first!!), but that doesn't mean I avoided beer on my visit. Exactly the opposite! I had heard about the new "tap room" in Disney's Hollywood Studios and made a point to visit as soon as it opened at 10:30am. Hey - we were on vacation!!
The spot is based on California craft beers and the tap list had a selection of breweries that Cali is known for - Stone, Green Flash, Golden Road, Lagunitas and more. There was only one brewery that I had never heard of, so naturally that's what I ordered.
The Angel City IPA was pleasant, maltier than I would expect for a west coast IPA but still balanced. But the best feature of this whole taproom is a big surprise - it's the cheese plate!
At just $10 for three cheeses, two meats, pickles, grapes, stone ground mustard and baguette this is a Disney STEAL. We loved the blue cheese with a grape on the baguette but everything was fresh and flavorful.
There are only three snacks on the menu: the cheese plate, spiced almonds and a pretzel. We also tried the almonds, which I would call more glazed than spiced. They were good for sharing - too sweet to eat a whole serving - but they were no cheese plate.
We came back for the cheese plate and beers no less than three times during our visit and I still finished that marathon!
Tips For Your Visit To Disney's Baseline Tap House
- If you tell them you're beers are to stay you get some fun tall German-style glasses. They're picture perfect!
- The cheese plate is a great deal, the pretzel, is just a pretzel
- There are two sizes of beer and flights available! Try the beers California has to offer and then order a big one to go.
- We loved stopping here for a beer and bringing it with us to the night time show Fantasmic. You save yourself a long wait in line and you get a real craft beer instead of a Blue Moon or Sam Adams.
