At the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel (recently purchased by Bejing-based Anbang Insurance Group), the culinary staff has come up with a honey-flavored brown ale, made with honey produced by bees housed on the roof of the hotel (bottom photo).
The Honey Brown Ale is a joint venture with Empire Brewing, located in New York’s Finger Lakes Region. The limited batch is only available at the hotel’s Peacock Alley, while supplies last.
The ale’s hint of caramel and nuttiness, with a subtle sweet finish, offers a great beer drinking experience, alone and with food.
One of the dance routines by T-Bass included the rap lyrics: “too afraid to grow-up.”

“A very dark view of the future has been superimposed on our incorrigible optimism. We are children playing with adult toys. They have proved too much for us to handle. But in our defense, we are probably not the only ones for whom they are too much.” Allan Bloom, The Closing of The American Mind (Simon & Schuster, 1987)
