One of the country's largest craft brewers comes to DIA

Atlanta-based SweetWater Brewing Company is expanding into its furthest western market to date.

DENVER — One of the largest craft brewers in the country now has a location at Denver International Airport (DIA).

SweetWater Brewing Company has opened its doors near Gate B80 at DIA's Concourse B.

The Atlanta, Georgia-based brewery will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., offering passengers a large beer selection and bar eats including burgers, salads and wings.

“Adding another brewery to [DIA's] beer scene further stamps our state's love for craft beer,” said Senior Vice President of Concessions Pam Dechant. “SweetWater Mountain Taphouse is a great addition to our brewery line-up, and we’re happy to have them onboard.”

DIA is SweetWater's second airport bar location – their first is their hometown airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
