DENVER — Sept. 14, 2015 — It’s back! Denver International Airport (DIA) announced today that it will bring back “Beer Flights” — its immensely popular temporary beer garden in the center of the Jeppesen Terminal — for a second year.

The beer garden will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily from Sept. 19 to Sept. 27, and coincides with worldwide Oktoberfest celebrations and the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. Tickets are available at the door for $10 and visitors must be 21 or older with a valid ID to enter. Cash and most major credit cards will be accepted.

“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. “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.”

“Beer Flights” is organized by Denver International Airport and Denver Arts & Venues in partnership with the Denver Theatre District and the Colorado Brewers Guild.

Admission to the event includes a souvenir glass and access to 10, 2-ounce samples of beer. A total of 20 Colorado breweries will be represented at the event. They include:

  • Avery Brewing – Liliko’i Kepolo

For the first time, passengers can also purchase commemorative glasses and T-shirts at one of several participating retailers throughout the airport.
