Four Points Best Brews Beer Trail- Nairobi Edition

I love Nairobi- i mean this city is always full of surprises. Wonderful surprises!

Just recently, Bars Kenya was invited to celebrate the ' Four Points’ Best Brews Around the World'.

Organised by Four Points By Sheraton, an international hotel brand known for its love of craft beer, we embarked on the Nairobi leg of it’s global trip discovering the world’s Best Brews.

The Four Points Best Brews initiative includes the brand’s 225+ hotels around the world, and showcases a local, craft beer which has been chosen based on taste, popularity, quality and proximity to the property.

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.

As the only city on the African continent to be joining this trail, Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi collaborated with the Big Five Breweries to create their own signature craft beer.

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 our National Park and scenic green Savannah. We were treated to a surprise helicopter ride crossing the city and out to the Ngong Hills.

Can i just say that this was the MOST EPIC part of the beer trail? Seeing Nairobi in its splendor, hovering just below the blue skies was one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had! Kudos to the planning team.

The trail culminated with an exclusive preview at the Four Points by Sheraton, Nairobi Airport hotel.

Vivek Mathur, General Manager, Four Points by Sheraton, Nairobi Airport said,

Four Points has a love for locally crafted beers, which is why we partnered with The Big Five Breweries to sample a taste of what Nairobi has to offer. We know the perfect pint has universal appeal, which is why we are the only city in Africa participating in the launch of ‘Best Brews Around the World.’ We invite local beer lovers and thirsty travelers to join us as we discover new Best Brews
