New partnership for complimentary in-flight service
TORONTO, Aug. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - 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.

About Ace Hill Beer
Ace Hill is a Toronto-based beer company focused on quality and simplicity. What began as a one-man homebrew operation in our co-founder's garage several years ago, has quickly grown into one of Canada's most creative and sought-after beer brands. Our Pilsner and Vienna Lager are widely available across Ontario at leading bars and restaurants, LCBOs, Beer Stores and grocery stores.
Our mission is to provide high-quality, accessible beers and make an impact on culture. We donate 1% of sales to clean water causes, because without good water there would be no good beer. We brew Ace Hill at a partner facility in Toronto called Brunswick Bierworks, using fresh, all-natural ingredients.
