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.

If you’re flying through—or heading to—Denver International Airport any time soon you might just notice something you haven’t ever seen before. The airport is planning to install some kind of high tech advertising screens, and apparently they’re the first to get these new slices of sales-y technology.
Technically they’re digital LED video curtains, and the plan is to install them all over the airport—with a focus in and around the security screening spots. They’ll also be hung from some of the elevator towers in the main terminal, where they can welcome visitors but also inform passengers of the best deals on airport parking. They’re super thin—truly like electronic curtains—and super large, as the new screens are around 26-feet diagonally.

Since you’ll probably be spending some time in an airport hub during your holiday travels, we thought we’d share a little story about one in particular. Unfortunately for the airport and the city, it’s just not as important as it once was. We’re talking about the Pittsburgh International Airport, and after US Airways shifted their planes and people elsewhere, the place has become a little empty.
Most of the additions were built at the airport to please US Airways, because after all, they were the one bringing in all the jobs and jets into the area. It cost about $1 billion to get the Pittsburgh airport to where it needed to be at the time, but now it seems that the construction and cash was all for naught. The place was supposed to hold over 30 million passengers a year without a problem, but now it only sees about 8 million passengers wheeling their suitcases through the terminals.

The animated short Airport uses little more than the standard symbols used on signs at airports to tell a cute little story. If only a real trip to the airport came with a jaunty soundtrack.
