Return to Dallas

I had to return to Dallas today and my return flight was delayed. I was in Dallas / Ft Worth Airport's new D Terminal. It sure is nice, a huge improvement from the older terminals. Spacious with shops and restaurants. I looked around trying to find an interesting beer - something more exciting than Bud Light. I found an Irish pub, well, as much of an Irish pub as can be in an airport terminal. Its name was Tigin and it's located near gates D-17 to D-21. It has the staples, Bass, Guinness and Bud Light. The interesting beer was a Smithwick's Irish Ale. It's billed as Ireland’s oldest beer. It tasted OK. It had a mineral aftertaste that's in other British Isle ales. I paid $8.00 for the pint! It was a 20 oz. pint, but still at $8.00, it was outrageous. Smithwick's is owned by Diageo so I guess it's not that interesting.
