Having made its inaugural UK flight earlier this year, BrewDog Airlines will be taking to the skies again with some its US Equity Punks on board.
This autumn, there will be two round trip flights: one from London to Columbus, and for the first time, one Columbus to Edinburgh.
Tickets are exclusively available to BrewDog shareholders, known as Equity Punks. The majority of Equity Punks are based in the UK, but since BrewDog’s opening of a US headquarters in 2017, more than 13,760 Americans have become Equity Punks, making it the second most Equity Punk-populated country.
BrewDog Airlines offers passengers a completely immersive craft beer experience at 35,000 feet. The cabin crew has been replaced by cicerone-trained flight attendanta who will dish out samples of craft beer, including BrewDog’s specially brewed Flight Club, which has been formulated to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 eye masks and blankets.
BrewDog co-founder, James Watt, said: “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.”
Tickets for BrewDog Airlines are available now for all BrewDog Equity Punks. The latest round of Equity for Punks crowdfunding is currently live, and is scheduled to close on July 5. On top of access to BrewDog Airlines tickets, all shareholders get access to a raft of beery benefits from an investment of £25 for 1 share. Find out more at brewdog.com/equityforpunks
