Did You Know? Cleveland Airport Has a Special-Edition Beer
Fun fact: fun facts are awesome. Whether you're trying to chat up a flight attendant or simply love learning something cool, we've got some tidbits to share. So all this week, we'll be squeezing our mindgrapes to bring you some awesome, random travel factoids.
Fact: Cleveland Airport serves a special edition, locally brewed beer: The Wright Pils.
Okay so typically we wouldn't recommend your scheduling an extra hour or two before your flight to spend at Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport, but that was before we found out a little secret the airport's been keeping within Terminal C (mostly Air Canada and United flights).
At the Great Lakes Brewpub near Gate C 14the only location of Great Lakes Brewing Company's Brewpub outside their Brewery in Cleveland properthe limited edition beer is on draft. You'll want some of this, as it's more than just limited edition; it's aviation-themed. The Wright Pils is "classic style with flowery bouquet and an elegantly dry finish." It's made to pair well with salads, salmon, tuna and "marbled meats." It also happens to be named for Ohio's own Wright Brothers.
The Wright Pils is a year-round offering, but kept specially for the two GLBC Brewpubs. It won the Gold Medal in the 2010 World Beer Championships, but in 2012 it may just win a special visit from us.
