Fairmont Empress presents ‘Hoyne Around the World’

Fairmont Empress and Hoyne Brewing Co. are joining forces to bring a beer tasting experience to the Bengal Lounge on Friday, April 19th. All craft beer enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a selection of Hoyne beers expertly paired with appetizers prepared by Fairmont Empress’ culinary team.

The standing reception-style event will feature some of Hoyne’s best internationally inspired craft beers. The selection of beers will represent various countries from around the globe, including the Czech Republic, Mexico, Canada, Italy, and Belgium. Notably, one of the beers will be crafted by the Young Lions, the next generation of brewers mentored by Sean Hoyne.

The menu inspired by Banquet Chef, Mark Classen, is designed to complement the international brews. From Burrata to a 36-hour Short Rib, guests can expect culinary excellence.

Within the rose garden, just north of the main entrance, you’ll find 10 bee colonies during the summer months. Each one has 50,000 bees. They help pollinate the flowers in the garden, the herbs in our rooftop garden and they produce nearly 700 pounds of honey every year!
