“My wife and I had a fabulous week (and she doesn't even usually drink beer!) We visited lots of new bars and tried many new beers. Thanks to the organisers and the participating venues.”

Really great way to visit some hidden gems. Every host was so welcoming and the ones that gave the info about the beer was a really nice touch. Can’t wait for next year!”

“Thanks for opening my eyes to even more beer.!
