Aero Plains Brewing is located in the Historic Delano District just West of the Arkansas River and downtown Wichita. In the 1870s, Delano was a wild and lawless cow town located on the Chisholm (cattle) Trail and home to infamous saloons, cowboys and “ladies of the night.” By the 1920s, Delano had transformed into a hub of innovation and manufacturing where Travel Air Co. and others would build some of the first airplanes in Wichita.
In 2016 at this crossroad of history and innovation, Aero Plains built its state of the art 11,500 sq. ft. packaging and production brewery. The brewery produces bottled beer for liquor stores and tap beer for restaurants and bars across Wichita, with plans to distribute throughout the state. The brewery has a large tasting room which also functions as a fine art gallery. One of the unique features of the tasting room is the bar, which was built from the wings of a 1958 Beechcraft airplane.
What We Offer
Visitors will enjoy an assortment of finely crafted ales and lagers at the brewery’s spacious and contemporary tasting room. With three seating areas to choose from, visitors can sit in the main bar area with TVs, or sit back in our comfortable club chairs in the lounge section or at the German beerhall setting, complete with heavy wooden tables overlooking the brewing area.
To satisfy your appetite, food trucks are available Wednesdays and Thursdays for dinner (5-9pm) and Fridays and Saturdays for lunch (12-3pm) and dinner (5-9pm). In addition to periodic, new beer releases, the brewery hosts a variety of regular events and musical acts for entertainment. The fine art on display in the tasting room is not only for your viewing pleasure, but also available for purchase. To help make your visit complete, Gold Cap members can request a private guided tour of the brewery from one of our brewmasters to learn firsthand about the beer making process.
