Alaska Airlines to Serve Fremont Brewing’s Lush IPA on All Flights

SEATTLE — Fremont Brewing’s Lush India Pale Ale will be served on all Alaska Airlines flights starting November 16, 2018. The partnership was first publicly announced in an Alaska Airlines blog post on November 13th. Made with a hand-selected blend of malts and Citra and Mosaic hops, Lush evokes the pure essence of the hops that define its clean, juicy, and tropical flavor.

“As a Pacific Northwest craft brewery, we’re proud and honored to be featured by another home-town favorite, Alaska Airlines,” said Matt Lincecum, Founder/Brewer of Fremont Brewing. “This partnership reflects our shared commitment to quality, sustainability, and community engagement. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a Lush on your next Alaska Airlines flight!”

“Alaska offers an inspired lineup of all craft brews onboard that feature local favorites such as Fremont Lush IPA,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, director of onboard food and beverage at Alaska Airlines. “Fremont’s focus on quality hops and their commitment to superior taste has taken craft beer to another level with the Lush IPA. Our shared values around sustainability and a West Coast sensibility that resonates with our guests make them a partner we are proud to fly with.”
