Scotland-based craft brewer, BrewDog will offer more than beer flights this fall.

Tickets are now on sale for a roundtrip flight from Columbus, Ohio to BrewDog's headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland aboard BrewDog Airlines.

For those who have never visited one, most craft brewery taprooms sell small pours of four to five beer beers called tasting flights.

BrewDog's airline flight costs about $1,845 per person or $3,500 for couples. It is only open to BrewDog's more than 13,760 American equity investors, often referred to by the brewery as "Equity Punks."

In-flight perks include a specialty beer brewed specifically for high altitude drinking, according to BrewDog. Passengers will also spend five nights visiting BrewDog headquarters and some of Scotland’s best whisky distilleries before returning to the U.S. on Nov. 5.

BrewDog opened its U.S. headquarters in Columbus in 2017. The company has since opened multiple bars in and around Columbus. Its newest location, a working brewery and hotel called The Doghouse debuted there in August.

Last October, the brewery announced it will open its first craft beer bar in Cincinnati this summer.

A spokesperson for BrewDog confirmed on Thursday the build-out of 316 Reading Road in Pendleton is well underway and the bar is slated to open sometime in August.

BrewDog Cincinnati will include two mezzanine bars, an outdoor patio and 25 taps featuring half BrewDog brews and half Cincinnati craft beers. It will also serve food.

This fall's BrewDog Airlines flight from Columbus will be its second international trip. More than 200 people participated in an inaugural roundtrip from Scotland to Columbus earlier this year.
