Brewing Pinehurst Pale Ale

IMG_9582

Our upcoming Taste of the New South festival is dubbed a food and wine weekend, but beer lovers will find plenty of craft brews to sip during the three-day event.

We don’t usually pick favorites, but there is one beer everyone will want to try – Pinehurst Pale Ale.

A few members of our team recently traveled to Highland Brewing Company in Asheville to take part in the brewing process.

We used Citra hops and lemon peel to give the beer a refreshing hint of citrus. The addition of dried rosemary creates an earthy flavor that’s distinct without being overpowering. Both elements give the beer a nice aroma.

It’s a light, easy-drinking beer that we think everyone will love.

“It should be perfect for tailgating, oysters and drinking outside on a pretty weekend,” said Highland’s Toby Arnheim.

If you can’t wait until the festival to try the brew, you can take part in our launch party a few weeks before Taste of the New South. We’ll announce the details on our social media accounts soon.

Now, you may be wondering what it was like to actually brew beer. I won’t lie, it’s pretty awesome. We started the process about 8:30 a.m. and didn’t finish up until after 3 p.m. There’s a lot of science involved in the process, so we won’t go into the nuts and bolts. Instead you can see our team hard at work:

Add watermelon for a refreshing twist on a classic

There’s nothing quite like a juicy slice of watermelon on a hot summer day.

That’s why the fruit is the inspiration for the Ryder Cup Lounge’s featured cocktail. A refreshing take on a classic margarita, this drink is best when sipped on the veranda of the Carolina Hotel.

The jalapeno gives this sweet concoction a punch without scorching the taste buds.

Stop by the Ryder Cup to try a Spicy Watermelon Margarita or make one at home using the recipe below.

U.S. Open returns to Pinehurst in 2024

Pinehurst No. 2 will be home to the U.S. Open for the fourth time in 25 years when the national championship returns to Pinehurst Resort and Country Club in 2024, the United States Golf Association announced on Wednesday.

“Pinehurst has elevated itself to one of the great and historic places for golf in this country,” said Thomas J. O’Toole Jr., USGA president. “Some say it’s our St. Andrews – it’s certainly something special, and that’s why we’re going back there for the 2024 U.S. Open.”

“Pinehurst has elevated itself to one of the great and historic places for golf in this country,” – USGA President Thomas J. O’Toole Jr.

The U.S. Open’s return in 2024 will mark the first time in over a century the USGA has awarded four Opens to a single site in a span of 25 years. It will also mark the 25thanniversary of the moment Payne Stewart won the 1999 U.S. Open with a dramatic par putt to win by a stroke over Phil Mickelson.

Prior to the 2024 U.S. Open, Pinehurst will host the 2017 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship and the 2019 U.S. Amateur Championship. Pinehurst hosted the historic back-to-back U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships in June 2014, won by Martin Kaymer and Michelle Wie.
