Independent craft brewer, BrewDog made history earlier this year with the launch of the world’s first craft beer airline, BrewDog Airlines. The inaugural U.K. flight took more than 200 of BrewDog’s U.K. investors, known as Equity Punks, from London to Columbus, Ohio, the home of BrewDog’s U.S. headquarters and the world’s first craft beer hotel, The DogHouse.
Now, U.S. Equity Punks get a turn. The first trip was such a smashing success that BrewDog will once again take to the brew skies this fall with two roundtrip flights: one flight from London to Columbus and for the first time, one flight from Columbus to Edinburgh, the motherland of BrewDog
Tickets for BrewDog Airlines are exclusively available to Equity Punks as a way for BrewDog to thank them for all they’ve done to take the craft beer company to the next level. The majority of Equity Punks are based in the U.K., but since BrewDog’s opening of a U.S. headquarters in 2017, more than 13,760 Americans have become Equity Punks, making the U.S. the second most Equity Punk-populated country. Now, following the success of the inaugural flight, BrewDog is now opening up a second trip to take America-based investors across the pond the other way for a craft beer experience unlike any other.
BrewDog Airlines offers passengers a completely immersive craft beer experience at 35,000 feet. The cabin crew has been replaced by Cicerone-trained flight attendance who will dish out samples of craft beer, including BrewDog’s specially brewed Flight Club, which has been formulated to combat the effects of high altitude on beer. BrewDog Airlines guests will also receive inflight care packages, including BrewDog eye masks and blankets.
The next flights will take place:
- October 31 departing Columbus for Edinburgh, the homeland of BrewDog. Passengers will spend five nights visiting the Ellon BrewDog headquarters and some of Scotland’s best whisky distilleries.
- October 31 departing London for Columbus for a five-night stay in the Arch City where passengers can tour the American brewery, BrewDog’s new home city, Columbus, and Ohio craft breweries.
BrewDog co-founder James Watt commented:
“We’re taking craft beer to new heights – literally – with BrewDog Airlines. Our first flight was an amazing success, and we received an outcry of interest in a flight departing from the States to visit our homeland in Scotland. What better way to say ‘Thank You’ to our awesome Equity Punk community than with a beer experience like no other. At BrewDog, we’re on a mission to make people as passionate about great craft beer as we are, exciting them about what craft beer is and can be. Through BrewDog Airlines, we’re doing just that.”
