Hyatt Regency Austin Introduces Pints & Playlists
Beer flights pair with curated music selections at hotel's Marker 10.
Hyatt Regency Austin, located on the shores of Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin, is implementing a program called Pints & Playlists or local residents and hotel guests at Marker 10. Pints & Playlists includes a flight of four five-ounce beers paired with a suggested playlist to complement each brew.
“By bringing together music and craft beer in a city so engulfed by both, we hope to bring to life the notes, flavors, and feel of each beer that we offer with our playlists,” says Cortney Harding, Marker 10 manager at Hyatt Regency Austin. “This project was created to showcase all that Austin has to offer for our guests and locals alike.”
The beer flight features a selection of four local beers that are currently available on tap, including Stash IPA, Pearlsnap Pilsner, Live Oak HefeWeizen, Austin Amber, and 512 IPA. Each beer is linked to a playlist of at least five songs curated to reflect the style of each brew. The beer and playlists will rotate seasonally.
To take part in the experience, guests can visit the hotel’s Marker 10 and order the Pints & Playlists beer flight. From there, they will be given the flight list and pairing descriptions along with directions on how to access the playlists through their smart phone using the free Spotify app.
The Pints & Playlists experience can be expanded to also include a selection of cheese from Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, with pairing suggestions of which cheese to enjoy with each beer.
The experience is a complimentary addition to any beer flight purchase. The flight is $12 and $9 during happy hour, between 3 and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The beer flight paired with local cheeses is $19.
