Diagon Alley Craft Beer Reviews

Left: Wizard's Brew, Right: Dragon ScaleGreat News! No matter which new beer you choose you'll find a delicious, refreshing beer in your cup brewed by Florida Beer Company.

Wizard's Brew
A double chocolate stout, dark brown in color with characteristic rich roasted malty notes. Chocolate stouts generally (but not always) refer only to the dark color of the beer but Wizard's Brew has strong overtones of actual chocolate in both aroma and flavor. The beer is lightly hopped and leaves very little bitterness on the palate. Easy to drink and a new favorite when we're at the park.

Dragon Scale
A smooth red ale. Only moderately hopped with notable dark malty notes that are slightly uncommon in a red, but delicious. Very slightly sweet with a bright finish customarily found in a red. Also highly recommended.


Fire Whiskey & Angry Orchard Cocktail
Mix up this cinnamon-y flavord whiskey with some Angry Orchard cider to take the edge off the harsh bite of the whiskey, but it still packs a mean punch. The Fire Whiskey is also available as a shot.

I was lucky to try these during the soft openings. While I liked Wizard's Brew, I find it more welcoming to a cool fall night rather than a 90 degree Orlando day. Such is the case with a lot of stouts, though. Dragon Scale is everything you want in a "Harry Potter theme park beer." Not crappy swill like Bud Light, but not a tough drinker, either. Well done, Universal (and InBev or whoever makes it).

I believe that the Dragon Scale and Wizard's Brew, like the Hogshead, are brewed by Florida Beer Company, a local brewery based in Cape Canaveral.
