Castle Hotel & Spa Announces Summer Series of Poolside Pairing Events

Introduced last summer, the Poolside Pairing events grew in popularity, leading to increasing the food pairing program to a weekly summer series

TARRYTOWN, NYFriday June 2014 – Castle Hotel & Spa announces another summer of culinary excellence with Poolside Pairings.  The Culinary Team at Equus Restaurant has developed creative and innovative menus that perfectly complement the popular local beverage producers — distilleries, breweries, and vintners.  All served in the spectacular Poolside Grotto at Castle Hotel & Spa overlooking the Hudson River.

The Poolside Pairing events were introduced last summer and grew in popularity which led to increasing the food pairing program to a weekly summer series.  According to General Manager, Gilbert Baeriswil, the recent “EXCELLENT” review of Equus in The New York Times has increased the popularity of the highly acclaimed restaurant and the Poolside Pairing series is a response to demand for these casual seasonal events that pair the award-winning cuisine with innovative local beverages.

On Thursday evenings throughout the summer, a different Poolside Pairing will match the talents of food and beverage… including whiskey, wine, sake, beer, champagne, tequila and the newest player to the scene:  Spiked Seltzer.
