    Have a 2 1/2 hour layover and saw thru the forums and reviews that Sweetwater has two Pubs at the airport. Is there any differences between the two and/or is one better than the other?

    I was under the impression there was only one until I did a quick search after seeing this thread. I've only been to the one in Terminal B. They typically have all the regular Sweetwater offerings and a seasonal. I've never seen the Dank Tanks or anything else there. The food is very average and the bartenders are pretty clueless about pouring beer. Sorry I can't give you any info about the other one - I think there are two entries in Yelp if that helps.

    Thanks, I checked out the yelps and it doesn't say which one is which. Not sure what terminal i'll be in but the taps sound like they'll make up for the average airport food.

    Other one is in the International Terminal (E). I suspect you'll be in B.

    I would love to know if the E one (which I haven't visited) is any different than that B one (which I have).

    According to the airport's website, they are on A and B. I doubt there's any difference between the two.

    The food at the Sweetwater Pub in B is absolutely dreadful. The IPA was nice and fresh though.

    Is there anything by west of the airport? Looking for a brewery, BBQ, maybe a store?
    Thanks!
