Flavor by Loews Philadelphia *Media Event*

Having been to every Bourbon Bash over the past three years, I'm always excited to hear about new events held by Loews Philadelphia in coordination with Bank & Bourbon. Flavor by Loews is a new program with select Philadelphia partners, providing patrons with the very best our great city has to offer. This is a national program that extends to all of the cities that are home to Loews Hotels, with local flavors being brought right to their guests. 

It makes sense that at Loews Philadelphia, they start by waking up their guests with Philly-born La Colombe coffee. We enjoyed draft lattes as well as Pastry Chef Amanda's always-great doughnuts, filled with La Colombe coffee cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce. The Banker's Choice was a favorite cocktail of mine, with bourbon-infused coffee mellowed out by the sweetness of creme de peche, amaro, and maple syrup. Easy drinking. Loews Philadelphia is also partnering with Saint Benjamin Brewing Company, a craft brewery and taproom operating from Kensington! A bourbon-barrel aged ale is made exclusively for guests of Bank and Bourbon, with the barrel-aged flavors balanced by the lightness of the lager. 

And who can say no to boules of bread from the Metropolitan Bakery. A perfect crust on the exterior belied pillowy innards within. It made for a great vehicle for both the lemon-pear ricotta & avocado-brussels toasts that Executive Chef Tom Harkins put out. He also provided us with Saint Benjamin's Beer-Braised Short Ribs with Pommes Puree & Horseradish. 

So if you have guests from out of town or are looking for a staycation, Loews Philadelphia has got you covered, with plenty of Philly flavors to boot. Also - be sure to be on the lookout for tickets to the 4th annual Bourbon Bash. It's sure to be another stellar event, with great bourbons and food to be enjoyed!
