BrewDog is set to launch the world’s first ever craft beer airline, which will take off in February next year. The flight will take place on a bespoke, branded Boeing 767, and will fly from London Stanstead to Columbus, Ohio, where the BrewDog brewery is based.
Passengers on the flight will get the full BrewDog experience over the four-day trip, with a tour of the brewery, and a day trip to Cincinnati for more beer-related activities. The brewers have created a beer that is designed to taste better at a higher altitude, so the flight is the perfect chance for beer-lovers to test this out. Passengers will also get to sample beer cocktails and food and beer pairings during the journey.
The airline is the latest venture from BrewDog, after the brand already announced that they will open a hotel next year, complete with beer taps in each room and a beer fridge in the shower.
Unfortunately, the flight isn’t open to just anyone. To get a seat on the plane you have to be an ‘Equity Punk’, which, in layman’s terms means one of BrewDog’s many investors.
If that’s you, you will be able to apply for a seat on the flight for £1,250 per person or £2,250 for two people sharing a room – and that price includes accommodation at a downtown Columbus hotel and all the day trips.
It’s not looking good if you’re not already an ‘Equity Punk’ because the application to become a BrewDog investor has now closed for UK residents. But there will be chances to win tickets for the flight – so keep an eye on BrewDog’s Facebook and Instagram pages for more details.
