BrewDog’s ‘Speedbird 100’ British Airways beer now available for home delivery!

As part of the British Airways 100th birthday celebrations, BrewDog created a special beer for the airline.

Called ‘Speedbird 100’, it is described as:

Built from the ground up for British Airways to celebrate their centenary. This IPA is as golden amber as a Transatlantic sun rise. Candied citrus, floral and resinous notes fill the cabin. Bitter-sweet to taste, tropical fruits disembark in rapid succession, all resting on a caramelized malt fuselage. Cruising at an altitude of 4.8% ABV, please sit back, relax and enjoy the beer.

‘Speedbird 100’ was not previously available for delivery, unless you were an investor in the company.  However, BrewDog has obviously been caught out by the lack of British Airways flights which means that there are no opportunities to serve it onboard.

It is now available via the BrewDog online shop – see here.

The shop is open and promising delivery in three to five days.

It isn’t cheap.  A 24-can case costs £43.20.  You also have delivery on top unless you order a total of 48 cans, although you can mix and match with other BrewDog beers to reach the 48-can level.

You can find out more on the BrewDog website here.

    Speedbird is not a particularly good IPA, Brewdog Punk IPA perhaps their best and available at most supermarkets for a little over £1 a can. Enough said, this is not a good deal.

  • Geoff says:

    Since it was “specifically brewed to work perfectly in the air and adapt to the reduction in taste and smell sensitivity at high altitudes”, will you have to drink it in your top floor?

    And maybe, just to enhance the experience, you could serve it in a flimsy plastic cup!

  • Jason Hindle says:

    So, erm, what’s it like then. Other BrewDog IPA’s I’ve tried have tended to be a bit too citrusy for my taste. For those lucky enough to have a CoOp nearby, to help you through the lockdowns, I recommend seeking out the shelf they reserve for breweries local to you.

    • Lumma says:

      It’s similar too mist Brewdog flavour profiles but it’s got a deeper flavour than Punk IPA, kind of like treacle/toffee notes.

      Tbf, I preferred drinking Tribute in the lounges but always enjoyed speedbird on flights, so maybe there’s something in it. I wouldn’t be a buyer at that price though

    I have a few shares in Brewdog and they have decent discounts both for shareholders and general public. Ordered a mixed box of 40 bottles and cans (including Transatlantic IPA of course!) for ca 80 pounds. Not a bad deal. Even in your example a can is less than 2 quid – that’s not much for a quality beer!
    Finally it was possible to get hold of Speedbird which was not available before. Brewdog bars are closed, they produce sanitiser and it’s important to support them

    • Novice says:

      Important for your stock too 😂

    • @mkcol says:

      Did they not email out a couple of weeks ago to say that shareholder discount has been suspended and prices lowered for everyone?

  • Andy S says:

    Works out at £1.80 per can.

    It’s actually a rather decent beer.

    • James Ryan says:

      Yea, I think its pretty good too. Tried it in T5 South lounge.

      £1.80 is the going rate in supermarkets for single cans or bottles of Brewdog.. But packs of four work out to £1.25.. So seems a bit pricey to have to pay 1.80 for a stack of 24.

  • guesswho2000 says:

    £57 delivery to Australia…shame, as I actually quite like it!

  • Andy S says:

    For anyone who lives in North London (Barnet & Enfield) and South Hertfordshire.
