Golden Road’s new beer’s coming to an airport near you

CATEGORIES: Beer Editor  

Magazines, gum, water bottles, cheesy souvenirs—airport shops don’t usually offer much for beer geeks. But L.A.’s Golden Road Brewing is taking care of that with its newest release: Carry On Citrus Ale, a beer brewed specifically for airports, and it’s coming to a hub near you.

The brewery launched cans of Carry On, a hoppy pale ale brewed with SoCal citrus, in partnership with HMSHost last month, initially stocking the beer at airports in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Fresno, Oakland, Palm Springs, Sacramento, Santa Ana, Las Vegas and Phoenix. According to the brewery, it plans to extend distribution to Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, Seattle, Boise, Spokane, Florida and Portland, Ore., airports by the end of the year.

You’ll definitely want to scoop up a few cans. The beer’s delicious, with an invigorating, refreshing profile to wake you up post-flight. Its spritzy mouthfeel and bright lemon and orange flavors mimic a mimosa, but there’s enough hop bite to make the 5.2%-ABV pale ale feel like a session IPA.

In conjunction with the release, the L.A. brewery’s currently running a contest on Instagram, asking fans to post pictures showing “how you ‘Carry On’ in your travels” using the hashtag #carryonale. The lucky winner gets a free trip to the brewery.
