Waldorf Buzz

WaldorfBuzzAt the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel (recently purchased by Bejing-based Anbang Insurance Group), the culinary staff has come up with a honey-flavored brown ale, made with honey produced by bees housed on the roof of the hotel (bottom photo).

The Honey Brown Ale is a joint venture with Empire Brewing, located in New York’s Finger Lakes Region. The limited batch is only available at the hotel’s Peacock Alley, while supplies last.

The ale’s hint of caramel and nuttiness, with a subtle sweet finish, offers a great beer drinking experience, alone and with food.
