CINCINNATI - In conjunction with Rivertown Brewing Company, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza is pleased to announce a new private label beer, Netherland Plaza Ale (NPA). This approachable pale ale is a session beer (4.8 percent alcohol) and features fresh hops picked in northern Cincinnati. NPA has a light amber color, a balanced malt and hop character and a clean finish. NPA is available at The Restaurants at Palm Court (The Bar at Palm Court, The Grille at Palm Court and Orchids at Palm Court) and at private banquets or events at Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.

"We wanted to add something special to our beverage program," said Todd Kelly, executive chef and director of food and beverage. "Seeing the request we get for local craft beers, we sought out a local brewer who we felt was doing well in our city. We decided on Rivertown Brewing Company to create a custom beer for us. We felt that Rivertown offered a great product and that they would be a good partner in developing the style of beer that we were looking for. We worked through the different flavor profiles of the grains and hops and developed what we believe is a beer that our customers would like. The guys at Rivertown worked their magic and brewed an amazing beer."

Jason Roeper, CEO & Brewer of Rivertown Brewing Company said, "We are very excited and pleased to introduce, in collaboration with one of Cincinnati's most pristine hotels, Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, the locally inspired American pale ale, which utilizes locally grown hops for an original and wonderful flavor. We look forward to many future projects with Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza!"
