Some get REALLY excited over mistake fares, others get REALLY excited over massive credit card sign-up bonuses. Me? I get REALLY excited over enhanced onboard beer selection!
Southwest announced at the beginning of this month they are rolling out Colorado’s own, Fat Tire beer onboard Southwest flights.
As a proud beer snob, I can say it has long irked me that the craft beer selection on just about every domestic carrier is nonexistent. I have seen craft beer on Virgin America but can’t remember too many other encounters with anything but the usual watery suspects. I hope other domestic carriers take note and this is just the start of the onboard craft beer revolution.
Fat Tire is a tasty Amber Ale coming from New Belgium Brewing Company, the third largest craft brewery in the United States out of Fort Collins, Colorado. Fat Tire is not my favorite craft beer but it represents an important shift away from the same old thing.
Cheers to no longer having to choose between Corona and Heineken as the ultra-premium beer selections onboard!
