GTM launches third beer

Global Travel Management has produced its third in a series of limited edition, specially-crafted beers, celebrating aspects of business travel.

Route Beer is the latest ale created by independent brewery Thurstons Brewery, based in the village of Horsell, close to Global Travel Management’s headquarters in Woking, Surrey.

ROUTE BEER is Global Travel Management’s third celebratory beer, brewed by Thurstons Brewery

Route Beer has been brewed to celebrate Global Travel Management’s long-term partnership with travel commerce platform Travelport. And it commemorates the best-known road in the United States: Route 66 or “the Mother Road”, which stretches 2,448 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica.

In 2017, Global Travel Management celebrated its twentieth anniversary with its first commissioned beer, The Globe Trotter. And in 2018, the company produced Fliegerbier, in partnership with Lufthansa.

Route Beer marks completes the hat-trick of beers brewed specifically for Global Travel Management by the award-winning Thurstons Brewery and, like its predecessors is a bottle-conditioned beer, matured by secondary fermentation.

The Globe Trotter – GTMS own real ale

 Something is brewing - 4

Global Travel Management are delighted to celebrate our 20th anniversary with our very own real ale, Globe Trotter, made by our friends and award-winning brewers, Thurstons.

“Globe Trotter was brewed with travel in mind”, says GTM’s managing director, Scott Pawley. “I have travelled the world and had a beer in every country that allows it; from the wheat beers in Germany to the dark ales of Algeria”, he continues.  “We wanted a beer that says, ‘welcome home and have a pint for a job well done'”.  We hope you will agree that Thurstons have captured that taste in Globe Trotter.

Please let us know if you would like to try this golden beer with a rounded bitterness, caramel and spice on the palate and a hoppy aroma.  And let us know where we can send you next!
