    I thought it was a huge improvement food wise and variety. The decor is well done and the new colors helps pop the building.

    I was watching it live this morning. Thought that was neat. Plus, you can actually hear through the speakers.

    Tried all the breakfast meals. Florentine sandwich was my favorite, but the Bagel Toast surprised me. I’m not usually one for Nutella, but I think the combination really worked.

    Super psyched to see Cigar City Jai Alai on the menu, it’s hard to find a good beer at UOR, hope this is the beginning of more options to come throughout the parks.

    I assume you mean in the parks, right?

    In general, I’ve found the entire resort to be lackluster for beer options, aside from nbc sports grill and a couple individual places. In general, you have the basic bud/miller/Yuengling or the “upscale” blue moon. I’d like to see more micro-brew style.

    Have not tried duff, I’ve heard it’s like a basic lager which isn’t worth the calories to me.

    Duff, Duff Dark, Dragon Scale, and Wizard's Brew are all legit man.

    I also feel like you can find good craft brews across the resort. Maybe not at the carts, but they're definitely pretty widespread

    Fact. Regular Duff is basic lager, but Dark and Stout are very good.

    Dark is the more "stouty" one. They have 3: Lite, Regular, and Dark. Regular and Dark are pretty legit. Lite is nothing special.

    Yea I should give duffs a try I guess, I’m not big on the HP offerings, they’re too harsh to me. I think I’m also babied because in CT, we have a ridiculous amount of craft brews that are insanely good. I have high expectations.

    Wait, Dark is the bottled stout? It's been a minute for me.

    Coming from an area without a lot of good craft beer the selection might look OK. Coming from the northeast the selection is pretty underwhelming.

    The one on the right? That'd be me. All the tables were open when I sat down. I'd have been happy to share, but no one asked.

    Duff Light = basic lager

    Duff = more flavorful lager (on a par with Sam Adams, the original craft beer you Millennial heathens)

    Duff Dry = darker beer, they call it a "stout" but I feel that's misleading, nothing like Guinness which is what most people associate with "stout"

    Duff Octoberfest = one of the best Florida craft beers on the market, variation on an Octoberfest beer

    [ETA: it's kind of funny that a Simpsons parody has outlived even the memory of the original "dry beer" fad. I wonder how many other fads will only be remembered by the Simpsons gags they inspired.]

    Yea, it's not a true stout, more like a porter, if anything, but I'm not sure it's even one of those.
