Era Alaska to charge $1 for promotional in-flight beer
ANCHORAGE, AK - Era Alaska announced today that they will begin charging $1.00 for the promotional in-flight beer samples from Denali Brewing Company on the select routes announced earlier this month, while lowering the cost of additional samples from $3.00 to $1.00. The list of select routes now includes all Dash 8-operated flights between Anchorage, Fairbanks, Deadhorse, Homer and Kodiak.
It was announced earlier this month that Era Alaska and Denali Brewing Company of Talkeetna, Alaska had initiated a partnership to offer promotional in-flight beer samples on select Dash 8-operated flights during the month of June in celebration of the return of summer in Alaska. Previously complimentary, Era Alaska will begin charging $1.00 for the initial sample while lowering the price of additional samples. Samples are served in single glasses and are available to passengers 21 and older in addition to Era Alaska’s normal in-flight Dash 8 cabin service.
Era Alaska is currently featuring Denali Brewing Company’s legendary Single Engine Red brew onboard the select flights, a salute to Alaska’s rich aviation history. The official beer of the 2011 Alaska State Fair, Single Engine Red is an Irish-style amber ale brewed with five choice American and European malts and just enough hops for balance. Single Engine Red has repeatedly proven a suitable compliment to Alaskan adventures, whether in the air or on the ground.
Denali Brewing Company is a locally-owned microbrewery located in Talkeetna, Alaska, established in 2009. For more information on Denali Brewing Company and their products, visit their website at http://denalibrewingcompany.com.
Era Alaska is the largest regional airline based in the state, offering daily passenger and cargo services to nearly 100 communities across Alaska. All flights operated on Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft feature full in-flight cabin service. Dash 8 flights not featuring the promotional beer samples will continue normal cabin service, including beer and wine for purchase for $5.00. Era Alaska accepts cash only in-flight.
