BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Five Boroughs Brewing Co., a Brooklyn-based brewery, and Le District, New York’s premiere French marketplace, teamed up in Spring 2018 to create Rosé Saison, which was exclusively available at Beaubourg Brasserie at Le District and the Five Boroughs Brewing Co. taproom. Now, they are introducing this exclusive beer in cans throughout the New York City market.
Housed within Brookfield Place, Le District has dominated the rosé game in New York City since opening in 2015, and will now be stepping its game up with the help of Five Boroughs Brewing Co. The Rosé Saison is a stunning pink color with slight sweetness, balanced warm spice notes and the subtle flavor of sweet tea. Rosé is no longer just for wine.
“Our Rosé Saison is a French-inspired beer, so a collaboration with Le District, New York’s premiere French marketplace, seemed natural,” said Nick Griffin, Head Brewer at Five Boroughs Brewing Co. “Le District’s patio overlooking the Hudson River is the perfect location to enjoy a beer made with hibiscus flowers, which balances a spicy yeast-driven character and tea-like notes. Five Boroughs Rosé Saison and a warm day at Le District is an ideal pairing.”
Le District is a marketplace, culinary experience and social destination that brings a taste of France and Parisian flair to the heart of downtown Manhattan. Its outdoor terrace at Beaubourg features gorgeous views of the Hudson River, making it the ideal location for summer dining or relaxing with a glass of Rosé Saison.
“Le District has been a destination for Rosé lovers from all over the five boroughs,” said Derek O’Connor, General Manager at Le District. “We’ve served rosé variations in wine, cocktails, and cider and wanted to be the first to serve beer. With Five Boroughs Brewing Co., we found a young, energetic and inspiring brewery that was just as excited about the rosé beer as we were. With a large portion of the ingredients coming from France, we have created a very unique product that will beautifully complement our sunsets on the terrace.”
