To celebrate the addition of the first Boeing 737 MAX 8 to its fleet, Icelandair has released a special edition beer dubbed the 737 Transatlantic Icelandair Pale Ale (7.37% ABV).
Now, beer lovers can enjoy a fun twist on the most popular craft beer style while en route to one of Europe’s hottest destinations.
The newly introduced Icelandair Pale Ale was brewed by Boyne Brew-House in Ireland. Inspired by the new aircraft, the Transatlantic Iceland IPA is made with hops from the Pacific Northwest, the region where Boeing planes are built, and European malts which pays homage to the journeys the new fleet will make.
The 737 Transatlantic IPA is the perfect toast to the new Icelandair fleet, which were built to enhance transatlantic travel with completely redesigned cabin space and larger windows for better in-flight viewing of Iceland’s famous aerial landscape. The beer will be available onboard all Icelandair flights and in the Icelandair Saga Lounge at Keflavik International airport through end of year.
Icelandair’s Boeing 737 MAX 8 will operate on routes between Reykjavik and European destinations including Billund, Berlin, Hamburg, Paris, and Copenhagen, seating 160 passengers across Saga Premium and Economy classes. All of the new planes are named after areas of Iceland’s spectacular natural beauty, and the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 is named Jökulsárlon for the beautiful Jökulsárlon Lagoon.
