Cunard Develops Onboard Craft Beer
Each of the three beers incorporate global flavours influenced by Cunard's international presence. Cunard Black is a biscotti breakfast stout, tinged with Sumatran coffee, Spanish almonds and Madagascan vanilla; Cunard Red is an IPA combining US and UK malts; and Cunard Gold is a German-style pilsner.
The beers are available on-tap, in cans, or as a flight of all three at the Golden Lion Pub aboard three of Cunard's luxurious vessels: the Queen Mary 2, the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Victoria. The beers are also available via the in-cabin room service menu.
Beyond its foodie-friendly cache, this collaboration is a great example of how hospitality and food and beverage brands can work together to create unique and exclusive experiences that provide a sense of place and time, as well as valuable Instagram visual fodder.
