I was wondering when i fly with Delta two years ago, i ask the (good looking) Stewardess for a Beer and she had a very big Choice of Brands like Budweiser, Coors or Miller. Does the Airlines not have Contracts with the Brewing Companies that they offer exclusive only on Beer e.g. Budweiser on all their Flights ??? I know that LTU offers only Königs when you order a Pils and Diebels when you order an Alt.

The U.S. carriers do sign agreements with breweries (and other beverage manufacturers) to supply certain brands on their flights . . . it differs by airlines. Stick with LH for the trip if you come over here (Patrick is my son's name!).

CUBANA serves beer and rum for FREE! ! !
They serve Cristal cerveza and it's pretty good!
It's better than Corona and certainly better than Coors, Bud & Miller. Personaly I prefer Stouts and Porters. But hey, I can't complain about free beer!
On Continental, you have to beg for water.

In Canada, before the merger, Canadian Airlines usually served Labatt's Blue Pilsner (I don't like this beer), while I've seen Molson Canadian and Molson Dry (now, THESE I like ) only on Air Canada flights. I know because on CP flights, Molson-brewed beer is usually NEVER available! So, I'm pretty sure that before the merger, Air Canada had a contract with Molson, while CP had its contract with Labatt's breweries.
WestJet will serve beer even though it is a discount airline, but only on flights one hour or greater in length. It serves both Canadian and Labatt's Blue. But interestingly, I think I've seen Big Rock beers served on WJ flights. if that's true, usually it's Grasshopper or Traditional Ale. Like WestJet, Big Rock is also headquartered in Calgary.
It usually costs about 4-5 dollars to buy any alcoholic drinks, including beer on all AC flights in economy class. But if there's a delay of more than an hour, then they'll serve the first beer for free. I don't know if they do the same on US carriers.

I do like the Stella served on AF - nothing better than sitting in a window seat high above the atlantic sipping a cold tin and looking out for other a/c flying along with us..
Great idea to serve local beers from originating cities, the wine-buffs always get this - but I`m not sure if flights out of MAN should serve Boddingtons "The Cream of Manchester" - we know it as the original fighting beer !!

There isn't any German Airline that by chance serves Krombacher Pils? That is the best beer you can get. Even if I don't drink beer while I'm up inthe skies... well not even when I'm on the ground....lol Well but what I know is that Krombacher is the best...

Delta offers Sam Adams on the Delta Shuttle flights, now only if we could get them to serve it on mainline flights. If Delta was smart, they'd start up a beer program like their Vinum wine program, feature microbrews from different regions; unfortunately most Americans wouldn't know a good beer if it was wearing a sign that said "I am a good beer!" One of the reason I flew to some cities was to sample some of their microbrews, and honestly, other than the micros up in Boston (Harpoon, Sam Adams), the city that offers the greatest brews (even at the airport) is PDX; everytime I flew there I was always bring back some good Oregon brewed beers (some of which I can't get here in Georgia, damn stupid state law, because of the alcohol content). As for having taps onboard, can't have it, the gas bottles needed to operate a keg system are considered hazmat, and cannot be brought aboard, and I damn sure know a f/a will really want to have to pull a pint the old fashion way. And what risk chipping a nail? (My one f/a smack for the year)
