The BrewDog company will launch a ‘BrewDog Boeing 767’ flight, allowing travelers to partake into a beer tasting experience while in the air.
Besides the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the United States Air Force Museum and at least a half-dozen professional sports franchises, there's yet another reason to visit Ohio. And it'll likely be an experience that'll take you higher than anything else the state has to offer in more ways than one.
It's all due to the ingenuity of those crafty craft beer masters BrewDog, which besides the DogHouse Hotel in Columbus, has added wings to another notion that's now a reality. It's called the world's first craft beer airline and you're invited along for the ride.
BrewDog plans to launch its ale-themed flights on Feb. 21st, between London and Columbus, where guests will stay for four nights at the company's hotel. A Boeing 767 will be party headquarters for the in-flight extravaganza, in which passengers can sample some limited edition BrewDog products as well as cuisine that matches beer and food. Apparently, the experience is accentuated when consuming the items at high altitudes.
And if those aren't enough to endure the lengthy trip, those on board will have an opportunity to sip cocktails and enjoy an amenity kit full of such goodies as eye masks and blankets.
Once at the DogHouse, which is naturally dubbed the world's first craft beer hotel, guests can imbibe in brew on tap in each suit or check out what's in the cans in the fridge. An added treat and guaranteed eyebrow-raiser is yet another bonus, described as a beer-infused spa treatment. Outside the hotel, tours arranged by the company include trips to local breweries as well as the bar and restaurant circuit in Columbus and nearby Cincinnati.
There is a catch, however. It's only available to BrewDog's Equity Punks, meaning an investment as low as $50 into the company is mandatory before being eligible for the vacation. U.S. Equity Punks are currently eligible to get in on the flight fun, which goes for just over $1,600 per person. Or take your chances on social media for an opportunity to win that trip for free.
