Six Pack flys to San Francisco from NZ with pilot for Diggnation
Tonight Epic Pale Ale has the privilege of flying from Auckland, New Zealand to San Francisco with one of the Air New Zealand pilots of flight NZ008 (track the flight here). He has a six pack as part of his carry on. This is a special mission to get Epic Pale Ale to Kevin & Alex of theDiggnation podcast - digg.com. As a bit of a tech geek as well as a total beer geek, and brewer of the Epic Pale Ale, I have finally now found a way to get a six pack of Epic Pale Ale (current Supreme Champion Beer from the New Zealand International Beer Awards 2006 ) from New Zealand to San Francisco, where my brother (yes a New Zealander working as a web designer for Real Branding in San Francisco) will make the pick up from the hotel where the pilot is staying, this weekend. Epic Pale Ale is very lucky to get this flight at such late notice, as if it had to buy a seat tonight it would cost NZ$2329 + airport taxes (US$1650). That's a flying time of 13 hours and a distance of 10,420 km or 6,475 miles. Once the beer has been secured it will be delivered to the Digg.com head quarters, and with a bit of luck Kevin and Alex will have the opportunity to sample New Zealand's best beer on the next episode ofDiggnation. Fingers crossed. Once the beer has been delivered to Digg.com we will give you an update. Cheers Luke Yes, I know there has been a bunch going on with Epic over the last couple of weeks like its listing in "What's Hot" in the Sunday Star Times a couple weekends ago, and the NZ Beer Festival. As soon as I get a chance I'll post some more updates. Thanks again for drinking Epic and telling your friends about it.
