At NW, domestically, we serve Budweiser, Miller Lite, and Firebrick Amber Lager. Since the merger, Leinenkugels has started appearing on flights here and there.
Good goes around!

Maybe they served this NA beer. I found some cans at a beer memorabilia show in 2007. It was brewed by the old Eastern Brewery in Hammonton, New Jersey. This brewery closed in 1990. Eastern was known for its contract brands, some of which were rather interesting. This can has the same thing written in Arabic on the other side.

I know in the 1960s and early 70s Eastern and Ozark carried Falstaff. I am sure a few others did too.

For one month back in 05 NW had Augsburger, which at the time was made by Steven Point Brewery. That is a great classic brand.

I always enjoyed Iron Range Amber Lager on NW flights.

Not only in economy...On a SIN-DEL run they offered me a Kingfisher too.

Quoting Sabena332 (Thread starter):
Lufthansa: Beck's and Warsteiner. Both brands in bottles and not in cans (for free).

I'm pretty sure LH has an exclusive contract with Warsteiner for a couple of years now. As I don't like it I'm not very happy about that fact. On the other hand they need to ship the Warsteiner bottles all over the world to cater their planes at the outstations.

TU has the national beer brand Celtia on board for free

Aer Lingus serve Heineken and Tiger - €4 each on shorthaul flights/free on longhaul.
No Guinness surprisingly and interesting to note that alcohol is served on all EI flights except those from Riga (RIX), Latvia.

Quoting Sabena332 (Thread starter):
easyJet: Carlsberg Export in cans (they sell it for 4.50 EUR per can).

I also read whilst onboard the other day that they serve Peroni on Italian routes. I'm pretty upset to see AF dropped Kronenbourg too, I always liked that.

As for other airlines:

Thomas Cook UK serve Carlsberg Export for £3. You'll most definitely need a few of those if, like me, you take one of their 6 hour flights to Egypt with their appauling 28" seat pitch.

Flybe serve Stella though I can't remember how much for.

And as mentioned, one of the beers US serve is Heineken.

I wonder who serves KESTREL BEER

Now that is a proper ALE

Make sure they know we're playing the game, but we don't need to play the game because we've already won the game.

IIRC, the following airlines served (to me in 2008):

SA alwayys has Castle (as mentioned above) but one some of my flights CPT-FRA-CPT also served Windhook Lager and Windhook Light CPT-FRA (all free)

AY served Koff (as mentioned above) but on the Helsinki-Nagoya leg also Asahi (all free IIRC), nice snackbar in C (on the A340s)

QF served Tiger ex SIN (free)

BA seems to serve whatever they can get their hands on, but do have half-decent wine in economy

LH, unfortunately, has only served Warsteiner for a while, wherever you go (at least it is free), good wines and champagne in C

I agree, I like beer from bottles but hate Warsteiner. What a shame, there are so many great beers in Germany and LH has selected one of the worst.

I would imagine LH and some of the German airlines have Spaten, lowenbrau, or the like.

I would go out of my way and pay more to be on a flight if I could drink Spaten.

The beer I chose on BA back in October was Heinekin. Sure I recall a lack of British lagers or ales, they should start stocking some Deuchars IPA, and if they need to go with a foreign lager beer, go with Tiger beer!

FAIK Czech Airlines is Pilsner Urquell in business, Gambrinus in economy.

Quoting Alasdair1982 (Reply 71):

It's a bit sad if they become yet another typically globalized airline which serves Heineken. There are quite a few decent UK brands (e.g. Tennent's or Carling) which should be appealing enough for the tastes of an average passenger.

Does anybody know any details in context of the topic about Emirates and/or TUIfly (ex-Germany)???
