The Art of The Home Bar

As the summer heat rolls in and the thought of packing in a sweaty, crowded bar becomes less and less appealing, nothing beats an impromptu at-home cocktail hour with friends.

Anatomy of a Great Beer, The Singel

Anatomy of a Great Beer, The Singel

The Singel is not only Hardywood Park’s flagship beer but also a favorite for many of us in the office. The recipe took years to develop and has a complex flavor that is a combination of fruitiness and spice, followed by a crispness not easily found in most beers. We caught up with Patrick Murtaugh...
