Iím a big fan of the Speedbird, a tasty drop indeed but the cans on EBay for £13.99 is quite frankly a f#*kin joke !!

Drop me a PM and we can sort out.

Tried both the Aircraft and Speedbird options last night.

Aircraft = vile! Far too intense citrus notes for me. Had to send most of it back, since I couldn't drink it.

Speedbird = ok, nothing special really. Quite typical of BrewDog, but that would be expected. I only had the one since I do not drink too much on a flight and had a glass of fizz on boarding.

Had a couple of free cans in ET back from FCO to LCY this afternoon.
Very drinkable.

I felt the same about it. But when I posted about it (post #157 above) at the time I seem to get the feeling that people thought I didn't appreciate good beer ... good to know now that I'm not alone!

You're not, but careful of upsetting the Brewdog Cultists.

I think AirCraft is a pretty ďout thereĒ beer to stick into First and fair play to BA and Brewdog for doing something interesting. I 100% agree that it wonít be to everyoneís taste; I did wonder if a brief description on the menu might help - itís unlikely to appeal to a devoted lager drinker for example, but may peak the interest of someone who likes a natural wine.

I like it but I like sour/ wild yeast/ Brett style beers and Iím an unashamed member of the Cult of Brewdog too so itís perfect for me.

Tons of cans of Speedbird in EDI but zero every time I have been through T5 lounges since the announcement. What gives?

Hopefully they will have some on this flight to Shanghai.
