"What's the deal with airline beer?" is a question you (and Jerry Seinfeld) now have the answer to, because it's actually pretty good... thanks to Delta?!?! Yeah. The airline has made a huge surge in the beer department by adding a selection of craft brews to their beverage carts, thereby successfully making flying significantly less unbearable for thousands of customers.
On a number of routes around the country, passengers can imbibe selections from Ballast Point, Blue Point, Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas, Newburyport, Samuel Adams, Stone, and SweetWater... all from the (relative) comfort of their seat. Also, every domestic flight will carry Sam Adams, so no matter where you're going, it'll feel like Boston. Especially if you're actually going to Boston.
Adam Lapetina is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and knows where to get these beers even when he isn't 35,000ft in the air. Read his musings at @adamlapetina.
