Boutique hotel brand Noble House Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Melvin Brewing on Noble Wolf pilsner, crafted exclusively for the hotel collection. Named for the Kirkland, WA-based brand’s first hotel, The Adolphus — which means noble wolf — the beer launched on International Beer Day, Aug. 4.
The 4.8% ABV brew, made from German Pilsner malt and Columbus, Liberty and Saphir hops, features aromas of fresh grain with a floral bouquet, hints of jasmine and green tea, alongside other herbaceous notes. The taste is balanced with a blend of sweet grains and an earthy bitterness, complemented by a gentle minerality, the company says.
All properties and experiences across the Noble House portfolio now offer the beer on tap, from California’s Portofino Hotel & Marina to Florida’s Little Palm Island Resort & Spa. To celebrate Noble Wolf’s Beer Day launch, hotels featured specialty programming, including complimentary beer tastings.
“Embracing local makers and creating singular experiences for our guests are part of the Noble House ethos,” says Thomas Haas, vice president of food & beverage for Noble House Hotels & Resorts. “Partnering with Jackson Hole-based Melvin Brewing, which already has a wonderful relationship with our hotels Teton Mountain Lodge and Hotel Terra, was right in line for us. We’re able to provide our guests with a high-quality craft product they can’t get anywhere else and do so with another award-winning, boutique brand.”
