Located at the foothills of the El Yunque Rainforest on 72 pristine acres of tropical gardens and stunning coastlines, Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico is a lush, tropical oasis where travelers are encouraged to lounge poolside under shaded palms or enjoy the resort’s protected beach and vast array of onsite amenities, with a sophisticated, yet laid back vibe congruent with the property’s signature motto ‘doing nothing means everything.’
Set on a mission to bottle the sensation of vacation in paradise and capture the island’s essence, the resort recently partnered with a notable craft brewery located in nearby Caguas, F.O.K Brewing Co., to create its first original beer, the PRadise Bliss Lager. Inspired by the natural beauty and abundance of the Grand Reserve, the refreshing new lager creates a journey of taste, blending the tropical notes of locally-grown guavas, passionfruit and oranges to create a light and crisp craft brew that is perfect for pool-side moments and leisure hour on the beach.
“We are excited to announce the new PRadise Bliss Lager, offered exclusively at our resort,” said General Manager Mark Frances. “We’re proud to be partners with Fok Brewing and support the innovation they’re bringing to the island. Nothing pairs better with an ice-cold lager than a day spent enjoying these stunning natural surroundings. Everything from the lager’s flavor profile to its bright, colorful branding is an excellent representation of our ethos and we look forward to the ways it will enhance the experience we create for our guests.”
A company that started with just three flavors, F.O.K Brewing Co. was founded on a mission to create Puerto Rican beers made with local raw materials to be distributed throughout the community to support and empower commerce within Puerto Rico. Today, the brewery produces 21 different flavors crafted with only the best raw materials grown on the island. The company’s sourced produce includes cocoa, honey, passion fruit, mango and habaneros. F.O.K, which stands for Fresh Of Keg, stands for the brand’s production methodology as the beers are always made fresh and packaged for immediate distribution to businesses around the island once they are brewed to perfection.
The PRadise Bliss Lager partnership is the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve’s latest effort to support, promote and stimulate Puerto Rico’s local economy and agriculture industry while offering guests a unique taste of La Isla del Encanto. At the helm of the resort’s culinary sustainability initiatives, Culinary Director and Chef Ibrahim Sanz has been developing the resort’s farm-to-table programs, partnering with local suppliers to reduce the property’s food’s carbon footprint by minimizing its mileage and supporting Puerto Rican growers. Today, the resort has increased its local produce by over 60%.
Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve has also proudly pledged to donate $1.00 for every beer sold to the Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association, an island-wide trade association that represents, protects, promotes, educates, and informs its more than 400 corporate members, which together directly and indirectly employ over 80,000 men and women in Puerto Rico.
“We congratulate the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve on the launch of the Paradise Bliss Lager, an outstanding product available for the enjoyment of all their customers, whether they are visitors or locals,” said Miguel Vega, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association (PRHTA). “At a time when collaborations and alliances are vital for the development and success of Puerto Rico as a tourist destination, we deeply appreciate the resort’s continuous support of the Association’s annually implemented programs, which are aimed to educate, represent, promote, and safeguard the interests of all its members. Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve’s generous donation further underscores their commitment to our shared goals and we extend our gratitude to the resort’s management for their support and trust in the work that the PRHTA has been doing for the past 70 years.”
Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve looks forward to exclusively offering the PRadise Bliss Lager starting today, providing guests with a tangy, citrus cold brew that will commemorate their visit to Puerto Rico with an unforgettable bottled flavor.
