Landing soon in Manchester: The American beer machine

Following the success of our Joint Venture pub in London, along with our partner Delta Air Lines we’re pleased to be bringing a taste of the USA to Manchester on the 14th and 15th September. As we continue to celebrate the 230 U.S. destinations we fly to, a selection of 230 U.S. craft beers will this time be served in our American Craft Beer machine – your next American destination is awaiting selection.

For two days only, our amazing inflight hospitality will touch down in buzzing Spinningfields Square off Deansgate, as we serve up a taste of the States from our very own American Beer Machine from 12pm–7pm each day. Each of our 230 U.S. destinations will be represented by a specially selected craft beer, to highlight the breadth of our joint network.

Come on down to Spinningfields and you’ll be greeted by members of our friendly cabin crew, who’ll guide you through our beer passport to help select the destination, before heading to our machine to pick your choice of beer by airport code.

Once you’ve made your selection you can enjoy your beer with some tasty inflight snacks and receive a promotional code to redeem up to £50 off your next American adventure. And if you’re seriously lucky, you may even win a flight or a discount voucher for a trip to North America with Virgin Holidays. Good luck, and cheers!
