Agreed - how’d you pull this off? Were they selling sixers in the terminal? I’ve brought some decent beers on the plane before from bars in the terminal, actually. I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of Sun King beers leaving Indy once.

Nah, nothing like that.

This was a few years back when people were carrying on cases of wine and putting them up in the overhead. I remember bringing Stones 7th Anniv on the plane so that is around 2004, I think.

So on a United flight I brought on a sixer of Old Foghorn (12oz-ers, so glad they stopped using those 7oz bottles). I remember cracking two and thinking nothing of it. I even used my empty water cup to drink it out of. My next flight a few months later was on United again and I remember them emphasizing before take off that you’re not allowed to open beer/wine/spirits that you’ve carried on the plane per United’s policy. Oops! Man, no one said a word to me while I was clearly drinking beer I carried on.

IMO drinking Old Foghorn = quality beer on an aircraft

I wonder if one could bring an empty growler through security, have it filled at one of the bars popping up in the security zone, and enjoy it on the flight? I know sweetwater has a good pub in Atlanta and there are plenty of others, too.

You drink bourbon from a martini glass?

I doubt they have the ability to properly fill growlers, or have it priced in their system, and I doubt they’d let you.

Horizon/Alasakan and I guess now, Virgin America, are the only two carriers that consistently carry craft beer. In Horizon’s case, it is all free, which is even more amazing. I can’t remember which beers I’ve had on Horizon/Alaskan because there were numerous time, but many IPAs, Stouts, Pale Ales, etc from the PNW.

That’s great news, thanks.
