In partnership with Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE) and Capital Brewing Co., the Airport Taproom is Canberra Airport’s fifth food and beverage operator opening in the past 12 months.
Head of property at Canberra Airport, Richard Snow said it was exciting to see more vendors opening at the venue as domestic borders reopen and more people travel.
“The timing is perfect as we are seeing a very steady return to aviation with flights increasing from 82 to 150 per week since the reopening of borders and are expecting a further increase in flights leading into Christmas,” he said.
“Capital Brewing Co. is a favourite among the Canberra community, and we look forward to sharing this with travellers at the airport.”
Travellers can expect to see some of the Capital Brewing Co. favourites on tap, including the Coast Ale, Trail Ale and XPA.
The Airport Taproom was originally supposed to open during September, however, was delayed due to COVID-19.
Capital Brewing Co. managing director Lawrence Kain said he was pleased to show travellers coming in and out of the Territory just what it had to offer.
“We are absolutely stoked to work with Canberra Airport and ARE to showcase to travellers from around the country a small snippet of how cool Canberra is and what the city has to offer,” he said.
“It is great to finally have people back in the skies and to fill a few schooners at the airport. Hopefully, we are giving people a good reason to turn up early for their flight!”
The news comes after recent announcements of direct flights from Canberra Airport to the Sunshine Coast and Cairns with Alliance Airlines and Qantas, as well as direct flights to Hobart with Link Airways and Qantas (from 4 December).
