Three Local Restaurants Open at Denver International Airport


Breckenridge Brewery, Brother’s BBQ and Snarf’s Sandwiches now on Concourse A

DENVER – Aug. 21, 2019 – Today, three local favorites celebrated their arrival to Denver International Airport: Breckenridge Brewery, Snarf’s Sandwiches and Brother’s BBQ. The restaurants’ new home is located on the east end of Concourse A.

“We’re committed to working with our local business community to bring unique shopping and dining options to our world-class airport that represent who we are as a city,” said Mayor Michael B. Hancock. “The addition of these three great local restaurants will showcase some of the best flavors from Colorado and the Mile High City.”

The three brands were brought to DEN in collaboration with Paradies Lagardère, a longtime DEN concessionaire and their ACDBE partner, Sky Blue Airport Enterprises.

“Snarf’s Sandwiches and Brothers BBQ are dining institutions, and Breckenridge Brewery is a pioneer in the Colorado craft beer industry. We’re excited to bring these local favorites into the airport,” said Regynald Washington, president, Paradies Lagardère Dining Division. “Paradies Lagardère seeks the best local brands to entice travelers and bring the familiar quality, taste and atmosphere of a favorite local restaurant into an airport.”

Passengers can find these great dining options near gates A71 -A87. These gates were completed in 2018 but became fully operational in May when United began operating many of its regional flights from this location. The gate hold rooms include outlets and cup holders at each seat and larger charging stations. In addition to the dining options, passengers can also purchase snacks, gifts, souvenirs and personal care items at the CNBC Smartshop located in the area.

In addition to the new gates on Concourse A, DEN is adding 39 new gates to all three concourses to accommodate growth by our airlines. The gate expansion project is part of DEN’s five-year capital improvement plan and is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

“Providing passengers with a taste of Denver and supporting our local brands is important to us as we want our passengers to have options,” said DEN Chief Executive Officer Kim Day. “As the airport continues to grow and we construct additional gates, we will have more space for great shopping and dining options such as these three local favorites.”
