Enjoy the Finest Craft Beers on Your Next Flight to Costa Rica

As the first-ever Costa Rica Craft Beer Festival is underway in Avenida Escazu, more good news for beer lovers just arrived: Passengers flying from Denver or St. Louis to our Juan Santamaria and Daniel Oduber international airports will be able to enjoy Colorado’s finest offerings on their next flight. 

The latest press release from Denver-based Frontier Airlines announced:

“This brew is on you! Today, Frontier Airlines announced it will begin featuring additional Colorado beers onboard that will rotate every other month and will let its fans choose what’s in the cooler. Voting takes place on the Denver-based carrier’s Facebook page and ends May 15 with the first winning beer appearing onboard June 1.”

In a previous article in The CostaRica Star, we answered a reader’s general questions regarding air travel in Costa Rica, and we mentioned Frontier Airlines as one of the budget airlines that passengers in cities near the American Midwest can take advantage of when flying into our country. This neat initiative by Frontier Airlines to allow passengers to vote on their favorite beers from the Colorado brewery scene is a great incentive to fly.

According to Dan Krause, Frontier’s vice president of marketing and customer experience:

“As Colorado’s only hometown carrier we want to partner with other great businesses born and bred in our home state. With so many top of the line Colorado breweries we’ve decided it will be far too difficult to pick just one, so we will look to feature a new Colorado brew every other month as voted on by our fans.”

The current beers offered aboard Frontier flights are Fat Tire Amber Ale (pictured above), Blue Moon Belgian White, and Coors Light -all brewed in Colorado. The beers currently available for voting are from micro and regional breweries:
  • Colorado Native Lager
  • Crabtree Oatmeal Stout
  • Dale’s Pale Ale
  • Upslope Pale Ale
We can only hope that in the future Frontier Airlines also opts to include a beer from the burgeoning Costa Rica microbrewery scene in their lineup.
