Icelandair introduces new on-board beer inspired by seasonal light

Icelandair has introduced a new on-board beer inspired by Icelandic winter light, providing passengers with a unique chance to celebrate this season.                                 

Named after the lovely glow of the Icelandic snow, Snæbjört (snie-bioert), the pale ale is inspired by the Icelandic winter.

With its light gold colour, it aims to celebrate the snowy season and the glimmers of light that manage to conquer the Icelandic darkness.

The beer is brewed with American hops Azacca, Mosaic and El Dorado and American Ale yeast bringing passengers a hoppy and fruity taste with a sweet aroma of pineapple, mango and passionfruit.

Brewed by the state-of-the-art Boyne Brewhouse in Ireland, Icelandair bring the best of craft beer to its passengers with original recipes.


While the beer also contains an abv of five per cent, a homage to the average temperature within Iceland all year round.

Kristján Jóhannesson, head of in-flight catering at Icelandair, commented: “We want to provide an exciting twist to our passengers onboard experience with us.

“We are constantly looking at innovative ways to enhance our passengers experience and by brewing limited edition seasonal pale ales like the Snæbjört, passengers can understand the culture of Iceland from a sip of their drink.”

The Snæbjört pale ale replaces its popular predecessor, the 737 Max IPA as the alternative in-flight beer.

Passengers can enjoy the new Icelandair special edition pale ale on board and in the Icelandair Saga Lounge at Keflavik International Airport and it will be available for all passengers on board flights across the Icelandair network from both European and North American destinations.
