“Exciting” and “airline news” are two words you hardly ever see together these days. But with the announcement that Delta Air Lines will now begin serving SweetWater’s 420 Extra Pale Ale on flights between Atlanta and New York City, we now have some airline news to actually be excited about.
So, the next time you end up sitting directly in front of the most turnt up toddler in aviation history on your next flight or are about to embark on your third connecting flight in one day, just know that an ice cold can of 420 Extra Pale Ale awaits you in the friendly skies.
“Delta is a world-class organization, as well as a local neighbor, so we couldn’t be more excited about this alliance and the opportunity for SweetWater to be featured onboard,” said SweetWater Founder and Big Kahuna Freddy Bench. “Our new cans eliminate the glass restrictions that previously held us back from offering our beer in great spots like airplanes, stadiums, beaches and more. This is an exciting time for craft beer and I’m personally looking forward to enjoy a few 420s on my next trip to The Big Apple!”
SweetWater ranks among the craft beer elite here in Atlanta, so it’s pretty cool seeing a home team make such a major move. And if you happen to be traveling from New York City to Atlanta, I’d highly suggest checking out the SweetWater brewery. I had the opportunity to check it out a few weeks ago and I’m already plotting which brewery I want to visit next. Good times, great beer, and it’s also pretty informative.
