Delta Airlines Now Serves Craft Beer to Help You Forget How Awful it Is

By Ashley Feinberg on at

Anytime you go careering through the air in a giant metal tube full of strangers and recirculated air, you're probably not going to have a great time. So to help ease the pain and/or lack of personal space, this week, much-maligned US airliner Delta will start serving beer that doesn't taste like poison wrought in hell. Progress!

The menu is wrought from a pretty solid list of craft American breweries that would make any beard-and-top-knot hipster drool, including Ballast Point Brewing Company, Blue Point Brewing Company, Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Newburyport Brewing Company, and Atlanta's SweetWater Brewery. Plus, every domestic flight will be serving up Samuel Adams.

Is this enough to make flying a pleasant experience that doesn't forever put out part of the beautiful light inside you? No. Probably not. But hey – it's a start. [Delta via Eater]
