Delta made a timely announcement considering that it is Friday about adding greater variety of craft beer brands to its domestic flights.
Samuel Adams (is this really considered a craft beer?) is available on all flights (excluding where these other brands are served) and specific routes below will get one or two of these craft beers.
Here’s the announcement from Delta:
Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) this week began stocking its beverage carts with a selection of regional craft beers to bring local options to customers. The move continues the airline’s focus on bringing regional food, wine and now beer to the in-flight experience.
Beer from Ballast Point Brewing Company (San Diego), Blue Point Brewing Company (Long Island, NY), Brooklyn Brewery (Brooklyn, NY), Lagunitas Brewing Company (Petaluma, Calif.), Newburyport Brewing Company (Newburyport, Mass.), Samuel Adams(Boston), and Stone Brewing Company (Escondido, Calif.) join SweetWater Brewery (Atlanta) to give all customers on routes within the U.S. a craft beer option.
The selection of regional craft beers are available on Delta’s West Coast Shuttle between Los Angeles and San Francisco; between New York-LaGuardia and Boston, Washington-Regan National and Chicago-O’Hare; on Delta’s transcontinental routes between New York-JFK and Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle; and on flights between Atlanta and New York-LaGuardia, Washington-Reagan National and Dulles,Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa and New Orleans. Samuel Adams is available on all other domestic routes in the U.S.
It is nice to have a greater variety of beers available on some of Delta’s flights. I am not a huge beer drinker but usually prefer German Weissbier when available.
