Last week I saw a mention on View From the Wing that United would be serving illy coffee. Considering I do not drink coffee, this was of little interest to me. But then I started seeing more sites posting about this caffeine-infused news.
Maybe it was a big deal, I don’t know, it doesn’t really affect me.
When it comes to inflight beverage picks, I tend to go with water or ginger ale. My guilty pleasure on airlines that serve it is Dr. Pepper… I might have an occasional beer during a flight but I prefer not to make it a habit to drink & fly.
In 2015 I’d assume that other airlines have also introduced new beer options…
I just came across news that United has added a new seasonal craft beer.
Samuel Adams Winter Lager will be available on flights worldwide “and in United Clubs at the airline’s mainland U.S. hubs“, according to United Newsroom.
Here is a description of the beer: “Bold and rich with a touch of spice, this dark wheat winter lager is brewed with fresh ground cinnamon, along with ginger and orange peel, for a deep smooth flavor“.
Kim and I just had this beer last weekend. Kim really enjoyed it while I found it to be decent but not one that I loved.
If I could choose one craft beer to have onboard a flight, I’d go with Brooklyn Brewery’s Greenmarket Wheat. (It’s actually the only beer of their’s that I really like. They also make a beer for Shake Shack called Shackmeister which isn’t bad.)
