White Claw Hard Seltzers have been flying high since the brand launched in 2016, and now for the first time ever, they’ll soon be soaring on United flights all around the world.
White Claw Mango, coming in at 5 percent ABV, is the first flavor to get a boarding pass, but if sales numbers on the ground are any indication, more selections could be on the horizon. White Claw’s Mango joins Truly’s Wild Berry on JetBlue flights as the only spiked seltzers available at 35,000 feet.
All flights longer than two hours will have access to United’s InFlight beverage menu, where passengers can purchase contactless drinks and snacks via an app or through the airline’s new mobile wallet.
Toby Enqvist, chief customer officer for United, described the company’s commitment to safety in a press release: “Our new contactless payment technology allows us to safely introduce this new menu on select flights.” This coincides with United’s pledge to “redefine cleaning and health safety procedures from check-in to landing.”
United’s expanded drinks menu also includes Breckenridge Brewery Juice Drop Hazy IPA, Kona Brewing Co. Big Wave Golden Ale, Stella Artois, and Michelob Ultra, as well as a collection of gourmet snack boxes.
The beer menu is uniformly priced at $8, and the airline offers complimentary alcoholic beverages in premium cabins and for economy passengers on premium transcontinental departures.
As more people take to the air this summer, here’s to safe flights and cold drinks.
