Four Points by Sheraton, one of Marriott International’s fastest-growing hotel brands, is celebrating its rapid international growth by taking its love of craft beer one pint further. As part of a global series of biergarten-themed events, the recently opened Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salaam, New Africa Hotel in Tanzania will showcase a collection of signature local craft beers from October 18 – 26. Guests are invited to the pop-up beer garden at the hotel’s poolside to enjoy a lively atmosphere, pub games and a selection of crafted brews.
Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salaam, New Africa Hotel has partnered with Crafty Dee’s, a local nano brewery, to create a limited edition specialty brew called ‘The English Summer’, a hybrid beer with an easy drinking profile that will be available only at the pop-up. To compliment the brews, a German-inspired food menu curated with local ingredients and inspired by the sights and sounds of Dar es Salaam will create the city’s own Oktoberfest.
Best Brews is a guest experience enjoyed at Four Points hotels worldwide, offering a taste of authentic, local flavour and culture through craft beer which has been chosen based on taste, popularity, quality and proximity to each property. While oceans, borders and languages can distance us, sharing a beer is a universal connector. The Four Points Around the World pop-up events will celebrate this connection by rotating select craft beer offerings from various countries and regions. Brews from the United States, Canada, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Africa will offer a figurative and literal taste of Four Points’ growing portfolio, while highlighting the unique brewing styles and local flavours from different cultures.
The first pour will be served at the Four Points by Sheraton Suzhou in China – followed by subsequent pop-up events in cities across five continents: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Africa – before culminating at the Four Points by Sheraton Puebla in Mexico.
“We look forward to welcoming guests to the first ever Four Points Best Brews pop up in the city and offer a taste of Africa as part of this global series while delivering the brand’s signature warm and uncomplicated yet comfortable service,” said Siddharth Chaudhry, General Manager Four Points by Sheraton Dar es Salaam, New Africa Hotel.
