Orchids At Palm Court In Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza And Blank Slate Brewing Company Set To Release Second Collaboration Beer “Flourish”
July 13, 2015
CINCINNATI, Ohio - The creative minds behind Orchids at Palm Court and Blank Slate Brewing Company have teamed up yet again to create a collaborative beer to be served in the acclaimed restaurant, Orchids at Palm Court and The Bar at Palm Court located in Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. This is the second in a series of four beers created to accompany the season in which they are served and to incorporate culinary influences pertinent to that time of year.
The newest beer entitled "Orchids Flourish" is a German Style Altbier brewed with agave nectar and finger limes. "The beer has a light maltiness to it but also a fruit sweetness from the addition of agave nectar. There's a big hit of lime in the nose that combines with the agave to give a nuanced flavor akin to a tequila/lime cocktail. It's not a traditional summer beer, but sometimes you just have to buck tradition." says Scott LaFollette, Blank Slate Brewing Company.
"We have been anticipating the release of the 'Flourish.' The 'Bloom' was such a unique and wonderful beer I think everyone is really going to appreciate the uniqueness of an Altbier brewed with agava and finger limes," Todd Kelly, executive chef, Orchids at Palm Court.
Beginning on Thursday, July 16 "Orchids Flourish" will be a 'draft only' offering available in The Bar at Palm Court and Orchids at Palm Court in the hotel located at 35 W 5th Street. It will also be available for a limited time at the Blank Slate Brewing Company PourHouse located at 4233 Airport Rd., Unit C starting on that same day. A few kegs of "Orchids Flourish" will find their way to other establishments around the city while supplies last.
