Four Points’ Best Brews Around the World celebrates the brand’s signature initiative, a dedicated program in which each of the brand’s 225+ hotels around the world showcases a local, craft beer which has been chosen based on taste, popularity, quality and proximity to the property.
A Best Brew is available on tap at each Four Points, offering travellers an authentic taste of local beer culture wherever their travels may take them. This year’s global trail kicked off in Manhattan, followed by Cancun Mexico, Okanagan Valley Canada, Melbourne Australia, stopping off in Nairobi and culminating in Barcelona, Spain. In Nairobi, they have collaborated with the Big Five Breweries who run the popular Brew Bistro bars in Westlands and Ngong Road, to create a signature craft beer that carries serious flavour.
“As the only city on the African continent to be joining this trail, Four Points by Sheraton, Nairobi is excited to showcase our love for beer and travel to the international community.”
An exciting day of adventure commenced with a tasting of the signature Four Pills brew along with a cook-off beer inspired lunch at the Four Points by Sheraton, Nairobi Hurlingham property.
This was followed by a private tour of the Big Five Breweries micro-brewery. Naturally, no trail in Nairobi would be complete without taking in the views of the National Park and scenic green savannah. Guests were treated to a surprise helicopter ride crossing the city and out to the Ngong Hills.
Flying Into The Rainbow. Helicopter trip makes for a fussfree way to commute in Nairobi – also great way to get your bearings.
