United Airlines and Goose Island Beer Company said they are teaming up to offer Goose Island´s 312 Urban Wheat Ale craft beer on the airline´s flights worldwide and at United Clubs in the continental United States, beginning July 1.
Goose Island´s 312 Urban Wheat Ale is a Chicago-inspired beer. Densely populated with flavour and named after one of Chicago´s primary area codes, the beer has a spicy aroma of cascade hops, followed by a crisp, fruity ale flavour delivered in a smooth, creamy body.
To commemorate the new partnership, United will host a special happy hour July 1 on United Flight 312 from Chicago to Houston and serve a complimentary 312 Urban Wheat Ale to customers throughout the aircraft.
In addition, members of the carrier´s MileagePlus loyalty program may use their miles to purchase tickets to watch the Aug. 19 Chicago Cubs-San Francisco Giants game at Chicago´s Skybox on Sheffield, which offers an extensive Goose Island selection. United will offer 40 pairs of tickets from July 17 to Aug. 6 through its MileagePlus Headliners program.
Founded in Chicago in 1988, Goose Island is one of the most successful craft breweries in the Midwest and produces some of the most popular, and award winning, beers in the US.
