SweetWater Brewing Company is partnering with Delta Air Lines, to debut a new in-flight craft beer offering. Delta will begin serving SweetWater’s flagship brew – 420 Extra Pale Ale – on Delta’s 34 daily flights between Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International and New York’s LaGuardia Airport starting April 1.
“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,” says 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!”
With the advent of SweetWater beers being available in cans, this is the first time passengers have had the opportunity to enjoy SweetWater’s craft beer at altitude. SweetWater Brewery announced the launch of its first-ever canned beers in early March to include 420 Extra Pale Ale and IPA in 12-ounce and 16-ounce options.
