BentSpoke slips the surly bonds of earth with Singapore Airlines
BentSpoke Brewing Co is thrilled to announce that Singapore Airlines flights from Sydney and Melbourne will soon be carrying their Barley Griffin Pale Ale in Business and First Class. As of the 1st of October, passengers will be able to enjoy craft beer on all Singapore Airlines flights in and out of Australia. BentSpoke???s Barley Griffin will be representing the Sydney and Melbourne flights. The airways have long been free of good independent brews but Singapore Airlines is leading the way by providing an independent craft beer option on their flights. ???It???s a huge honour for us to be chosen from all the great breweries in South-Eastern Australia,??? said BentSpoke co-owner and head brewer Richard Watkins. ???We???re really looking forward to international visitors having our beer as their first taste of Australia. ???Barley Griffin won a gold medal at the 2017 International Brewing Awards so it???s great that one of the best beers in the world will be representing our country.??? Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President, Mr Tan Tiow Kor, said the introduction of craft beer onboard reinforced Singapore Airlines commitment to supporting local Australian producers and businesses as well as Singapore Airlines focus on delivering a premium food and beverage offering. ???Since we began operating to Australia 50 years ago we have consistently looked to source local Australian produce when we have had the opportunity,??? Mr Tan said. ???Partnering with a third Australian craft brewery reinforces this commitment and highlights our strong focus on providing our customers with a selection of premium food and beverage options onboard our flights.
