Tribute takes to the skies


Tribute Cornish Pale Ale will soon be enjoyed by travellers across the world thanks to a new agreement between British Airways and St Austell Brewery.

From next month, specially commissioned 330ml cans of Tribute will be available on all BA flights, from short-haul to long-haul, as well as in the airline’s network of global lounges.

MD, James Staughton, said: “Tribute Cornish Pale Ale has experienced huge success over recent years, but this agreement truly marks it out as the beer of the moment.  It is testament to the quality and flavour of our locally produced beer and also to the growing strength of the unique Cornish identity that Tribute was chosen as the only ale to be served on all British Airways flights.

“This is a historic day for St Austell Brewery and we are thrilled that passengers will be able to enjoy a true taste of Cornwall while flying all around the world.”

St Austell Brewery beer is no stranger to foreign shores, with hundreds of barrels exported each month to more than 20 countries, including such markets as Brazil, Japan and New Zealand.
