New Belgium Fat Tire Cans

New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, CO) just made drinking while flying a little tastier.

The brewery’s flagship amber ale, Fat Tire is now available on all Southwest Airlines and AirTran flights. What’s even better that this news? Southwest tells Beer Street Journal that the cans will retail for just $5. (Credit cards only, folks.)

AirTran, which is based in Atlanta, doesn’t even carry local craft breweries yet. Perhaps that will change once SweetWater’s cans hit shelves in the Spring.

Ed Note. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever had a beer on a plane. (Booze, yes.) Why? Not paying airline prices for the selection offered. This changes things.
