Independent craft brewer BrewDog is launching a unique craft beer airline experience.

It promises the ultimate immersive experience, while also being 35,000 feet in the air. Taking flight in February 2019, the BrewDog airlines will roundtrip between London and Columbus, where the brewery’s U.S headquarters and its craft beer hotel are based.

According to Luxury Launches, passengers onboard the chartered Boeing 767 will take part in a unique beer tasting experience as they sample a limited-edition BrewDog beer that has been specifically brewed to adapt to the reduction of taste and smell sensitivity in high altitudes.

Once guests arrive in Ohio, they will tour the brewery, visit the DogHouse hotel and explore the BrewDog’s beer museum. The trip includes a four-night stay in Columbus.

“We took craft beer to the depths of the seas when we brewed an IPA at the bottom of the North Sea,” said James Watt, a BrewDog co-founder. “Now, we’re turning to the skies aboard BrewDog Airlines. BrewDog Airlines will be an experience like no other, we’ve redesigned the flight experience for optimum beer enjoyment – from the food, to the entertainment, the cabin crew and most of all, the specially brewed high-altitude beer.”

Tickets for the experience will be around $1600 pp, including all flights, excursions and accommodation. Discounts are available to beer fans sharing a room.
