Authentic Taiwanese Flavor in a Bottle

Trying locally brewed craft beer is a great way to experience the flavors and culture of a new place. 

Craft beer is brewed from natural cereal grains using traditional methods. The type of grains and hops used, brewing technique, type of yeast, fermentation time and temperature all affect the flavor and texture of the beer. Therefore, the artistry of the brewer is key to a great-tasting craft ale. 

Always innovating, EVA Air has teamed up with Taihu Brewing to bring passengers an exclusive craft beer: Jasmine Tea Ale. The unfiltered beer is the result of 18 months of work by 11-year brewing veteran Winnie Hsu, the first Taiwanese to receive the VLB Brew Master Certificate. Hsu won a Gold Award at Japan’s International Beer Cup for her ingenious use of Taiwanese ingredients, such as kumquat. 

For her collaboration with EVA Air, she combined the flavors of jasmine flowers and green tea through a cold brewing process, giving the resulting beer a fresh, elegant, and layered taste. 

EVA Air is currently offering Jasmine Tea Ale in Royal Laurel/Premium Laurel Class cabins on long-haul flights departing from Taiwan. We invite you to savor the authentic flavors of the island as you enjoy your beer.
