Moe’s Tavern Now Open, Serving Duff Beer & More

simpsons

After announcing plans to open a Simpson Theme Park just over a week ago, Universal Orlando has officially declared Fast Food Boulevard open to the public.

At the moment, Moe’s Tavern, Krusty Burger, the Frying Dutchman, Lisa’s Teahouse of Horror, Luigi’s Pizza and Cletus’ Chicken Shack are open for business, serving up iconic dishes seen on The Simpsons. Most notably, Duff Beer.

Unfortunately, with the exception of Moe’s Tavern, the eateries are not separate establishments and instead are grouped together under one food court. Although Krusty Burger appears to be a restaurant in itself, it’s actually just a seating area open to all guests dining at any of the quick service counters. Still, the fact that they’re serving Clogburgers from Krusty Burger and Double-Battered Chicken from Cletus’ Chicken Shack has us pretty giddy.

At Moe’s Tavern, the Duff Beer is rightfully alcoholic and available as Lite or Dry , with a taste similar to Budweiser. As a special treat, Flaming Moe’s are also on the menu and while it’s sadly neither boozy nor on fire, the park does it’s best by serving it as orange soda served on dry ice for a smoky effect.

Oh, Florida, why you so far?

Simpsons Theme Park Will Feature Krusty Burger & Serve Duff Beer

Springfield-Universal-Orlando

Let me sum up this article in five words: There will be Duff Beer.

Other than that, yes, Universal Orlando will be building a real-life Springfield — the hometown of America’s most endearing animated family (Full House? Get outta here). The new outdoor attraction will include the actual restaurants, stores, characters and food featured in The Simpsons.

Visitors will be able to feast upon a “Krusty-certified” meat sandwich at Krusty Burger, pizza at Luigi’s Pizza, donuts at Lard Lad, fish at the Frying Dutchman, a “Taco Fresho” with Bumblebee Man and Duff Beer at Moe’s Tavern.

“This will be a must-see experience for Simpsons fans all over the world,” raved Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative, in a press release. “For the first time ever, they’re going to be able to enter a world that they’ve only seen on television – and we’re really excited to bring that world to life.”

I’m not gonna front, I’m way more excited for this than I was for Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley. Mostly because I felt cheated when I found out the Butterbeer was a cream soda sham.
