From Airways Brewing:
Airways New Look
“Over the past 6 years, a lot has changed. As we get ready to move the brewery and expand production, we’ve spent some time reflecting on where we want to go, and what makes Airways unique in a region that loves airplanes and beer,” said Alex Dittmar, founder and head brewer at Airways Brewing Company.
“The new logo, which you’ll start to see today, reflects our passion for the glamorous era of airline travel. While the airplanes are of course a huge part of that, we also wanted to capture the spirit of the people in the industry. These were innovators in an age before computers, & hard-working crews that worked long hours to make flying a luxury. The new logo pays tribute to their stories and the enduring friendships that have been passed on to us at Airways.”
