Toronto, Ontario – Porter Airlines is introducing a new partnership with Toronto-based craft beer company, Ace Hill. Beginning today, Porter will exclusively serve Ace Hill Pilsner as part of its complimentary in-flight beverage service. Ace Hill also offers a Vienna Lager that will be introduced after the launch providing an opportunity for passengers to enjoy a style of beer that was not previously available onboard.
“Porter is well known for providing a distinct, fresh and award-winning inflight service offering,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “We always seek to partner with brands that provide quality products reflecting our unique experience. We recognize those similarities with Ace Hill and look forward to developing our relationship in the coming years.”
Porter provides all passengers with complimentary inflight amenities, including a selection of snacks plus beer and wine, served in real glassware. This helped Porter earn Best Free Airline Amenity in the 2017 SmarterTravel Editors’ Choice Awards.
“This is an exciting moment for our team, as we’ve long admired Porter’s refined flying experience and entrepreneurial spirit,” said Mike Wagman, CEO and co-founder of Ace Hill Beer. “We share an objective of providing customers with an exceptional product and an elevated experience.”
Ace Hill launched in 2016 with its Pilsner and recently introduced a second beer, the Vienna Lager. Porter will serve Ace Hill in 473 ml cans, poured in glassware.
