USA Today spotlights DIA beer garden

USA Today looked at DIA's pop-up beer garden, aptly named "Beer Flights," as the 2014 Great American Beer Festival approached.


Opening on Sept. 19 and running through Oct. 4, DIA's "Beer Flights" (get it?) beer garden will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. You'll need to be 21 or older and pay $10 to get in the door, but the admission fee includes a souvenir glass, a bag of pretzels provided by Southwest Airlines and 10 two-ounce samples of beer.

A lot of great beer is made in Denver and throughout Colorado and 11 of the state's breweries will be represented in the garden, including Avery Brewing Company, Breckenridge Brewery, Bristol Brewing Company, Dry Dock Brewing Company, Great Divide Brewing Company and others. Most of the beers represented in the beer garden also are available year-round in airport pubs and restaurants.
