DENVER (CBS4)– While you’re waiting to board your regular flight, why not stop by the beer garden at Denver International Airport and take a “Beer Flight?”
The Beer Garden at the center of the Jeppesen Terminal at DIA returned on Saturday and will be serving brew to passengers through Sept. 27.
The Beer Flights coincide with worldwide Oktoberfest celebrations and the Great American Beer Festival in Denver.
“Our inaugural beer garden brought together people from different corners of the world to share stories and form new friendships as they sampled a taste of the booming Colorado craft beer scene,” airport CEO Kim Day said in a statement. “The feedback we received from passengers far exceeded our expectations, so we are excited to make ‘Beer Flights’ an annual event. This year, we will offer twice the number of breweries for passengers to experience, along with live music and an unbeatable atmosphere in the center of one of the busiest airport terminals in the country.”
