British Airways has teamed up with Scottish craft brewery BrewDog to create a bespoke IPA, to be called Speedbird 100.

It will be available on flights from 1st May and will also be turning up in selected British Airways lounges.  In addition, BrewDog will be running a bar in the Galleries Club lounge at New York JFK when it reopens, serving its full range of beers.

More interestingly, BrewDog will be offering a 10% discount on food and drink at its chain of pubs to British Airways Executive Club members.

This only starts from 1st May, however, so don’t run down there now.  You can find a full list of their 45+ UK sites on the BrewDog website here which includes a bar in the airside part of Edinburgh Airport.
