Did you know that Delta Offers Over 30 Craft Beers? I received an email from one of my Delta contacts who shared with me this cool graphic showing the 26 craft beers that Delta has added to it’s Sky Club’s lately and where they come from. Back in 2014 Delta started adding craft beers aboard some flights, now they have increased the selection quite a bit! Now, if you read this blog often, you know what I think is the best drink in the sky. But, I’ve been know to order a craft beer from time to time and now that I know how the big the selection is getting I’ll be sure to try more!

Get access to Delta Sky Clubs
There are many credit cards which provide access to the Delta SkyClubs. As reminder both the American Express Platinum Card, as well as the Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN provide complimentary SkyClub access.
So far, Delta offers about 30 different beers in 35 Sky Clubs and onboard select flights. I know that I love tasting beers from various markets and the best part is that it’s complimentary for Club members! Which of these craft beers are you most excited to try at 35,000 feet?
