Starting in February, Hawaiian Airlines is adding a variety of new additions to its inflight drink menu. Ranging from seasonal beer to locally roasted coffee, passengers can now get a taste for the Hawaiian lifestyle before touching down on the islands.

A highlight of the new menu is Hawaiian’s use of local resources and industries. For example, passengers can now drink Lion coffee, a Honolulu-based roaster, aboard all flights international and domestic. The coffee is made with a “special chemistry” designed to avoid the faulty quality that can come about when brewed at a high-altitude. According to the airline, it should have as rich a flavor as it does on the ground.

Hawaiian has also added three new Island-themed cocktails by On The Rocks (OTR) Premium Cocktails. Passengers will have their pick between the “Moloka’i Mule,” the “Tropical Landing” and, of course, a Mai Tai (available March 1). The cocktails will be served complimentary in Business and First Class cabins and available for purchase for Economy and Basic Economy guests on domestic flights.

Lastly, for a limited time only, Hawaiian is bringing Maui Brewing Company’s new Pau Hana Pilsner aboard flights. The airline already stocks the brewer’s Bikini Blonde in its drink carts and says that it is a popular choice among passengers. Also, if you do develop a taste for local Hawaiian beers — Maui Brewing Company has a brewery and Tasting Room in Kihei, Maui, for travelers to check out when they finally reach the islands.
Enjoy the new drinks — and remember to drink responsibly aboard your flights.
