CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 2, 2015) — The Sheraton Sand Key Resort on Clearwater Beach has come up with yet another reason for guests to book their vacations there—a handcrafted proprietary ale.
Turtle Ale, which was created for Sheraton Sand Key in collaboration with Pair O’ Dice Brewing Company in Clearwater, was unveiled this summer. The ale went through multiple re-workings until the Sheraton’s Executive Chef John Harris thought it tasted just right.
Harris, who has delighted guests at the Sheraton with his cuisine for more than 20 years, wanted to create a beer that’s perfect for sipping on the beach, one you can enjoy all day long. The dark caramel-colored amber ale, with its crisp, clean body, citrus notes and mild, hoppy finish is just that beer.
“I wanted to create a beer that made guests feel like they were tasting the distinct flavors of Clearwater Beach,” Harris said. “Clearwater has one of the top ten beaches in Florida, and it deserves an ale of equal caliber. Guest feedback has been nothing but positive, so we must’ve done something right.”
Turtle Ale is currently only available at the Sheraton in both the Mainstay Tavern and outside at the Turtle Bar, so if you want to taste this unique summer ale, you’ll have to make your way down to Clearwater Beach.
