DIA BEER GARDEN

Consider wearing your lederhosen or a dirndl if you’re flying through Denver International Airport during the next few weeks.

This is Oktoberfest season and DIA is celebrating with a temporary beer garden set up in the center of the main terminal.

Opening through Oct. 4, DIA’s “Beer Flights” (get it?) beer garden is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

DIA BEER GARDEN BEER GLASS

You’ll need to be 21 or older and pay $10 to get in the door, but the admission fee gets you a souvenir glass, a bag of pretzels provided by Southwest Airlines and 10 two-ounce samples of beer.

In addition to beer sampling, the 16-day pop-up beer garden will offer live music, talks by brewmasters, brew trivia and eight picnic tables decorated by local artists.

And to add to the festivities, DIA is having a Twitter photo contest (#BeerFlightsDIA), with prizes from T-shirts and hats to a snowboard, a Durango hotel stay and a day with the head brewer of the Ska Brewing Company.

Not drinking but curious about Colorado-made beer? There’s no admission fee or age limit to view the beer-themed art exhibit, Colorado on Tap: The State of Brew Culture, on the pre-security bridge walkway to A gates through December.

The exhibit includes artifacts from a variety of Colorado craft breweries, including pub glasses, specialty glassware, coasters, tap handles, t-shirts, bottles, cans and custom art created for beer labels.

And keep in mind, while Denver International Airport’s beer garden will close Oct. 4, the Airbräu, a 600-seat Bavarian-style covered beer garden with an on-site brewery and live music, operates at Munich Airport year-round.
