TONY SINGH CELEBRITY CHEF BREWS UP RANGE OF BEERS IN MOXY

Scottish celebrity chef Tony Singh has announced the launch of a range of beers working in collaboration with Scottish Brewery of the Year, Fierce Beer.

As one of the UK’s best loved chefs, renowned for his lively personality, this is Singh’s first foray into the drinks market.  

Tony explains; “I’ve been looking to create something different and felt there was a gap in the market for a range of premium beers with a distinctly Indian twist that are great on their own but could also complement curries.  I wanted to have a bit of fun with ingredients and flavours, and I feel we’ve created two cracking launch beers that will have everyone talking.”

Kicking off with Indian Lager infused with cardamom and Citrus Pale Ale infused with lemon zest and coriander seed, the refreshing character is at the heart of each beer.  The colourful packaging and striking designs include a paisley print as a nod to both Tony’s Indian and Scottish roots.

Working with the Aberdeen based team at Fierce Beer, who won 11 awards as well as the coveted Scottish Brewery of the Year at the Scottish Beer Awards last October, means that a distribution network is already in place.  Managing Director of Fierce Beer, Dave Grant said; “We’re proud to be producing this range for Tony and we feel there’s nothing else quite like it in the marketplace.  We know consumers are looking for something different and aren’t afraid to be experimental, so we believe these beers will be well received.” 

Already, there has been huge interest in the brews prior to launch.  An initial contract has been secured with global boutique chain Moxy, who will be the first hotel group to stock it in all their Scottish hotels, including their brewery themed hotel at Moxy Edinburgh Fountainbridge.

Tony continues; “It was great to work with the team at Fierce Beer who have an innovative approach to creating beers and I really respect their passion for the craft.  I’m just really excited for people to try them for themselves and see what we’ve produced.”

Currently available as 30 litre kegs and fully recyclable 440ml cans, they can be purchased directly from Fierce Beer at www.fiercebeer.com.

Future plans are already underway to extend the range further over the next 12 months.

MOXY HOTEL BRISTOL IS HERE TO PLAY

MOXY BRISTOL, UK – April 27, 2022 – Moxy Hotels, Marriott Bonvoy’s experiential hotel brand, has announced the opening of Moxy Bristol in the heart of the vibrant city.

Located opposite the famous Cabot’s Circus, the new stylish and affordable hotel offers 214 guestrooms and has embraced its location with playful street art inspired design throughout, nodding to the famed art culture that adorns the streets, underpasses, back-alleys and bridges of Bristol.

The modern design and tech savvy features play to both leisure and business travellers, offering several guestroom types to suit everyone, from queen and twins to family rooms.  

The Moxy team worked with Bricks, a Bristol-based social enterprise, to inject a bold and ultra-local collection of vibrant pieces of public artwork.  On entry to the lobby, fun hunters are greeted with a commissioned piece of art evoking the famous St Pauls Carnival by painter and sculptor Bo Lanyon.  It complements the numerous artworks on the walls, workstations and windows by artists including Lawrence Hoo, Charles Golding, Lucas Antics and Dr Myles-Jay Linton that celebrate the local St Pauls and St Jude’s culturally rich communities and heritage as well as Bristolian sayings and the famous Bristol Suspension Bridge.  

Moxy Bristol celebrates originality with its quirky exterior featuring two eleven metre living walls alongside the hotel’s logo, setting the playful scene for guests from the moment they see the building.   The hotel also offers several styled workstations, some with views out to the street as well as a meeting room for guests who want more of a gathering.  For those looking for a quieter zone, the library is the place to be with chillout areas.  

As with all Moxy hotels, the fun starts at Bar Moxy, the social heart of the hotel which doubles up as the check-in.  It’s here that guests receive a complimentary cocktail on arrival before getting the chance to try out the games and activities in the communal space.   For guests looking for a workout, the Moxy gym features the latest equipment.

Each guestroom has been thoughtfully mapped out to maximise on storage and space.  Cabin luggage can easily slide under the cleverly designed platform bed where the tech-smart sensory mood lighting system underneath automatically switches off when you’re ready to sleep.  USB-C connectors have been fitted to all rooms as well as European standard plugs for travellers.

“This hotel is in a fantastic location that you can’t miss as you enter into the city, opposite Cabot’s Circus.” said Captain Melih Yanik “This highly anticipated opening is a great addition to Bristol.  We’re more than ready to let the personality of this hotel shine through, revolutionising what’s available in the hotel arena and look forward to welcoming guests to see what we have created.”

Donovan Sumner, Regional Director of Operations UK for Hotel Co. 51, the operations Company for Moxy Bristol added; “Bristol is a cutting-edge city and is perfectly matched for the free-spirited, cheeky and fun atmosphere that Moxy is now famous for.  We’re proud to make this Hotel Co. 51’s 15th UK opening and our first in the south-west region, adding to our overall growth strategy.  I’d also like to add that we’re delighted to have Melih join the Moxy crew as our Captain.”

Moxy Bristol is a dog friendly hotel for guests who want to take their four-legged friends.  Parking for guests is available opposite in the multi-story, where a 30% discount applies for guests when validated at Reception.
