BrewDog, a Scottish craft brewery, is chartering a plane to create what it’s calling the world’s first “craft beer airline.” Departing on February 21, 2019, and returning on February 25, the plane will fly from London to Columbus, Ohio.
While not exactly a true airline with regular flights, the one-time chartered flight will be an experience. The BrewDog-sponsored Boeing 767 will host the highest ever beer tasting, featuring new beer designed to taste better at higher altitudes. You’ll also be treated to Lone Wolf canned cocktails and food paired with BrewDog beers. For the entertainment, the plane has the BrewDog Network, a video library filled with episodes on brewing and mixology.
The experience isn’t over when the plane lands. Riders can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the BrewDog Columbus hotel; bar hop at local bars, restaurants, and breweries; and take a day trip to Cincinnati to experience the city’s breweries.
The flight is available for any of BrewDog’s Equity Punks, which are essentially its shareholders. To join, you have to invest in the company. A single ticket costs $1,603 and includes all flights, excursions, and a private room at a hotel in downtown Columbus. You can stay in BrewDog’s new Columbus brewery hotel for an extra fee. To book, you’ll need to register here with BrewDog.
