Southwest Airlines said Friday that it is adding Leinenkugel’s seasonal brews on all its flights.

A Leinie’s will cost $5 unless you have drink coupons that are distributed as part of Southwest’s Business Select or Rapid Rewards programs.

“Leinenkugel’s will be the first beer Southwest offers on a rotating seasonal basis,” said the Dallas-based airline, which provides the most service at Kansas City International Airport.

Each season, the airline will replace its offerings with the current seasonal beer from the Chippewa Falls, Wis., brewery.

“Leinenkugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter will start the rotation for the colder months, followed by Summer Shandy as warm weather approaches and transitioning to Oktoberfest in the fall,” the airline said in a statement.

Southwest also said it had added Dos Equis Lager Especial to its in-flight offerings.

“We’re always striving to improve our customer experience onboard, and the addition of these two beers gives our customers unique options while on our flights,” said Mike Hafner, Southwest Airlines’ vice president of cabin services.
