NEW YORK (April 22, 2015) – From the Boston Harbor to the shores of Santa Monica, Loews Hotels & Resorts addresses are celebrating National Burger Month with locally inspired signature burgers paired with craft beers available through the end of June.

“We’re excited to kick-off the summer season with our chefs’ mouthwatering takes on America’s favorite sandwich,” says Mark Weiss, Senior Vice President of Food & Beverage at Loews Hotels & Resorts. “Our new burgers and brews promotion allows our talented chefs to incorporate local inspiration from their respective destinations, creating an experience that is memorable for guests and diners alike.”

From pickles and onion rings to French fries and coleslaw, everything goes with a good burger – but nothing quite like a cold beer. The talented food and beverage teams at individual Loews properties have done their research, piecing together perfect combinations of burgers and brews that reflect the taste and spirit of their locales. The resulting pairings are not only delicious, but align with Loews’ focus on delighting guests with exciting and approachable local travel experiences.

What’s on the grill, under the broiler, in the pan and poured just right for National Burger Month at Loews Hotels & Resorts? Here are just a few pairings to kick start your appetite:

• Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, Nashville
o The Burger: Chef Brandon Frohne’s “Don Quixote Burger” features brisket/short rib burger with avocado slaw, queso flameado chorizo, sunny egg, padron peppers and goo goo cluster mole.
o The Brew: Jackalope Brewing Company’s Thunder Ann APA includes notes of apricot and mango in addition to a citrus bouquet. Honey and biscuit malts contribute to the body as well, creating a friendly-yet-bold American Pale Ale.

• Loews New Orleans Hotel
o The Burger: The “Absinthe BBQ Burger” by Chef Carl Schaubhut is a beef patty topped with buttermilk fried onions, bacon, Manchego cheese, and an Absinthe and diced red raisin barbeque sauce for a tart fruit tan served with lemon-herb Parmesan fries on the side.
o The Brew: Abita Purple Haze is produced just 30 miles north of New Orleans at a brewery in the piney wood, the red raisin and botanicals in the barbeque sauce pair well with the raspberries brewed in the beer, creating a fruity aroma and tart taste with every bite.

• Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Orlando
o The Burger: Chef Leon Teow’s “Portofino Buddha Burger” is an angus beef and Kalbi Korean short rib burger topped with Uniagi sake sauce, pickled vegetables, pea sprouts, and Sriracha Mayo on a toasted brioche bun.
o The Brew: Funky Buddha Floridian Hefeweizan is light on the palate with compelling aromas of citrus and cloves that balance the burger’s layered flavors.
