Orchids At Palm Court In Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza And Blank Slate Brewing Company Set To Release Third Collaboration Beer “Bounty”
October 19, 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 third 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, titled “Orchids Bounty,” is an apple infused spiced ale. “We added several pounds of reduced apples and cider to a toasty pie-crust-like malt bill. The addition of the ras el hanout spice blend and lactose gives the beer a wonderful aroma and flavor reminiscent of apple pie. This time of year everyone really gets into pumpkin spiced beers so we decided to throw a little love to another fruit that is also in season this time of year,” said Scott LaFollette, proprietor, Blank Slate Brewing Company.
“Bounty was our first opportunity to use our local farmers for our beer. We're excited to have the opportunity to partner with a number of local apple farmers in making this unique recipe. The ras el hanout seasoning will bring a lot of depth of fall spices to really make this a special beer,” Todd Kelly, executive chef, Orchids at Palm Court.
Beginning on Thursday, October 22 “Orchids Bounty” 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 Bounty” will find their way to other establishments around the city while supplies last.
