Visited on 4/30/09, reviewed from notes, this was at the end of our departure terminal at the Denver airport on the south side near United Airlines, they have six taps including Fat Tire, Mothership Wit, Blue Paddle, 1554, and a few others I cannot remember, there were some big TVs, place was pretty cool for an airport but not somewhere a beer geek would seek out, their sandwiches looked decent for airport food, expect New Belgium's normal lineup of beers on tap, seemed very new and kept quite clean, shows how big of an impact this brewery has had on Colorado, does no justice for the Fort Collins location of the brewery but not bad considering its location, would go again if I had a layover or something and was in the mood for a beer, worth trying if you are in the same boat

There's nothing special to this airport bar except when you remember that you're stuck in the airport and you'd rather be here than some lifeless mexican restaurant w/ $20 margaritas or the TCBY. As a standalone bar, it would be mediocre at best. However, it is a viable option at the airport, so much so that I walk the extra mile to get to it when I have some time before take-off.
Beer is expensive, but there's a good variety of NB taps and bottles. There is always a Lips of Faith beer on tap as well (usually a good thing, but not always).
It's never too crowded (did I mention it is a mile off the United terminal?). The food is quite good, especially the sliders.
Next time you have some down time at DIA, stop by. You'll burn off some of the calories with the hike it takes to get here.

On a 4 hour layover, this is a must. Denver International is full of taprooms; making it one of the greatest airports in the world.
It is, of course, in an airport however. So it's packed full of tired people that just want a quick drink, and a staff there to accommodate that need. It feels like any bar in an airport really, just New Belgium themed and has excellent beer.
Oh the beer.
The beer, the beer. Any problems this place has is quickly made up for when you're stuck in an airport for hours and then a waiter hands you a 1554 Enlightened Black Ale in the proper sniffer glass. Golden. Enough said I think.
Best place to stop into if you're stuck in Denver International. I might adjust my flights, just so I can stop in again.

Lord I never thought I would be reviewing an airport bar, but the awesomeness of Colorado beer culture has created a decent beer bar in the heart of an international airport. Keep in mind, the prices are a bit higher than a regular bar, as expected. Still, the beer is fresh and they have around 8 New Belgium selections. The food is actually pretty decent too (standard sandwiches, burgers, etc.) and servings are generous. Maybe the fact that I was drinking my last glasses of Colorado beer after a fantastic trip made it even better.
For slightly lower beer prices, but a smaller selection and no food options search out the New Belgium Spoke in a far off corner of the airport.
