No free beer
KODIAK, Alaska - There is no such thing as a free beer, at least on Era Alaska flights. The airline had been offering a free 6-ounce beer to adult passengers but it discontinued the program Tuesday as a courtesy to the state, which prohibits free alcohol from being used as a marketing tool. However, there is no federal law against it once planes are airborne.
