BrewDog Airlines takes flight in February 2019 with a round-trip between London and Columbus, the capital of Ohio State and home of the Aberdeenshire brewery’s US HQ and its craft beer hotel, The DogHouse.

Passengers aboard the chartered Boeing 767 will partake in a unique beer tasting experience as they sample a limited-edition BrewDog beer that has been specifically brewed to adapt to the reduction of taste and smell sensitivity in high altitudes.

The round trip includes a four-night stay in Columbus, where guests will tour BrewDog’s state-of-the-art brewery, visit The DogHouse Hotel, and explore BrewDog’s dedicated beer museum.

The limited edition beer will be presented by Cicerone-trained cabin crew, offering expertise in beer 35,000ft in the air.

Guest on board can look forward to BrewDog inflight care packages, which will include BrewDog eye masks and blankets.

A food and beer pairing menu will replace the usual fare on board, and inflight flight boards will provide a range of beers to sample whilst cruising to Columbus.

Guests will also enjoy a tour of Columbus’ many breweries, bars and restaurants as well as take a day trip to Cincinnati for more brewery tours.

The BrewDog Airlines experience will take place between February 21st and 25th 2019 and BrewDog will be running a prize draw for five lucky winners, each with a plus one, to secure a place on the trip via social media.

Prospective high-flying craft beer fans should visit BrewDog’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be in with a chance of winning one of these limited pairs of places.

Tickets for The BrewDog Airlines can be purchased by visiting the website.

James Watt, cofounder of BrewDog, said: “We took craft beer to the depths of the seas when we brewed an IPA at the bottom of the North Sea. Now, we’re turning to the skies aboard BrewDog Airlines.

"We’re on a mission to open minds and excite people about what craft beer is and can be. Booking a seat on the plane is a must for any serious beer lover.

"BrewDog Airlines will be an experience like no other, we’ve redesigned the flight experience for optimum beer enjoyment - from the food, to the entertainment, the cabin crew and most of all, the specially brewed high-altitude beer.”
