Reader: Beer Flights at DIA? They'll Need More Barf Bags!

With the Great American Beer Festival just a few weeks away, the gang's all beer -- and just about every spot in town is getting into the act. That includes Denver International Airport, which next week will introduce Beer Flights, a temporary beer garden in the main terminal where ten bucks buys you admission and two-ounce pours of ten Colorado craft beers. Sounds like just the thing to settle pre-flight nerves...or is it? See also: Beer Here! DIA Will Host a Beer Garden in the Main Terminal Says Ed:
As if we don't have enough problems with drunken-passenger air rage...
Adds Steven:
Still got to walk a damn mile to simply have a cigarette...
Concludes Cole:
They'll need more barf bags on those flights.
What do you think about DIA's plan for Beer Flights? Will you stop by for a drink -- or ten?
