Schofferhofer Grapefruit Bier is one of life's little pleasures and indulgences that you may or may not know about. If you know, well then, you know and at Disney World, knowing where to find this gem is as important as finding any beer at the Disney World parks.
Three of the four Disney World parks will provide guests with an opportunity to purchase beer. All except Magic Kingdom, the one park where adults would probably like to have a cold beer on a hot day. After all, endless character greets, long lines, princess after princess, and hot children who grow tired and cranky quickly all add up to needing a cold brew.
While you have to suffer at Magic Kingdom, you do not have to do so at the other three parks.
You could go for a Bud Light or another domestic brew and sometimes you don't have a big choice because of where you are at in the park but if you plan it right, you can hit the perfect spot for a perfect..."bier".
Schofferhofer Grapefruit Bier is not something you can only find at Disney. You can find it at a liquor store or even at a Publix beer cooler but it goes down so much better at Disney. More on that in a minute.
If you want to call it right...don't try to pronounced, in Germany they simply order it as a Sheffy!
Epcot is the easiest place to find Schoefferhofer Grapefruit Bier. There are three locations but they are all located at, you guessed it, the Germany Pavilion in World Showcase.
The first is at the bier and pretzel cart on the main walk-around. It is located front and center of the pavilion along the waters edge.
The second spot, should the line be too long, is at the first restaurant on the right as you walk into the pavilion. There is a small counter out front.
The third spot is a little harder to find but far less busy and in the shade. To the left is a series of little shops. Go to the gift shop behind the Wurther's shop. Follow that to the back and you will find a small bar where you can order drinks. Here you can order Sheffy as well.
