GERMANY. Travel food specialist Casualfood has unveiled a new Beans & Barley concept at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport. The Terminal A airside Level 1 outlet offers craft beer and coffee, along with a range of sweet and savoury snacks in a space just under 40sq m.

Nice name, nice concept: Beans & Barley fuses craft beer and coffee.

Casualfood Managing Partners Stefan Weber and Michael Weigel said: “Craft beer and coffee are a great match. Both beverages have developed incredibly strongly in recent years and have become veritable indulgence products boasting a great deal of variety.

“For us, it was therefore the obvious thing to do to bring these two favourites together within a single concept and offer them as Beans & Barley.”

Casualfoods said Beans & Barley focuses on quality and sustainability, with a wide range of traditional beer products and 15 craft beers from the Stone Brewing, Braufactum and Berliner Berg brands.

Beans & Barley focuses on quality and sustainability.

Its coffee beans are sourced from Casualfood’s roasting facility, where they undergo a drum roasting process. Nitro cold brew coffee is highlighted and coffee flavours include almond, caramel, toasted marshmallow and Irish cream. Almond, oak, soya and lactose-free milk are available.

Beans & Barley snacks include pulled chicken buns, Berlin meatballs and a vegetarian option with feta and olives. Fresh food counter offerings include a vegan quinoa salad, Mediterranean pasta salad, muesli and chocolate blancmange.

The new outlet also offers local snacks and a range of salads and treats from its fresh food counter.

Casualfood claimed that Beans & Barley is “just the thing for guests looking for more flavour and indulgence, more freshness and craftsmanship, more atmosphere and creativity, and more exclusivity and originality”.

Souvenirs including a Berlin coffee cup, coffee brewer and a Weducer cup made of pressed coffee grounds.

Casualfood launched a new Brezel Lovers concept at Frankfurt Airport Terminal 1 airside earlier this year. The new outlets expand its portfolio to 12 food service and store brands across 56 outlets.
