Southwest Airlines Will Now Serve Fat Tire

Here’s the situation: You’re 30,000 feet above the ground on a four-hour-long cross country flight, sandwiched between two professional wrestlers, and the eight-year-old sitting in front of you keeps turning around and asking why your shirt has so many buttons. You need a beer. But the airline’s beer list is limited to Bud, Bud Light, or Heineken. Sigh.

If you’re flying Southwest, you’ll have a better option soon. According to the LA Times, New Belgium has entered a partnership with Southwest that will result in Fat Tire being available on all Southwest and Airtran flights. And the beer will only be $5, the same price as that can of Heineken.

There’s a pun here about a “flight of craft beer,” but I’m going to rise above it.
