It’s been a long day on the road. Your employer would be pleased with how you pounded the pavement, wrangled potential clients and promoted your beer brand. But now your pitches have been thrown, meetings have been met and your tired dogs are barking. As you park yourself on a hotel bar stool, you’d do just about anything for a tasty craft beer. Well, all you have to do is order one, as more hotels are featuring craft beer on their bar taps.
HotelNewsNow.com posted a killer feature on the addition of craft beers in a growing number of hotel chains. Cambria Suites rolled out its craft beer program last May with one stringent requirement — all locations must have two local craft beers available in bottles. HotelNewsNow.com explains:
“‘What kind of local beer do you have?’ is the first question we get from customers,” said Dean Rump, the property’s GM.
For guests who want to order a Budweiser at Brewster’s, a Beererie at the Four Points by Sheraton Los Angeles International Airport, they have to ask for it special. Mainstream beers aren’t on the menu, which includes 10 craft beers on tap and more than 100 bottled craft and specialty beers from around the world. In the summer, six more taps are added at the pool bar and all feature small local brewers.
Interestingly enough, the Cambria Suites craft beer idea came from one of the hotels just an I-71 stone’s throw away from the Craft Brewing Business offices — Columbus, Ohio. For all the crafty details, be sure to check out HotelNewsNow.com.
