Meet The Brewer Sessions

Thursday from 12pm we are running a series of meet the brewer sessions where you can meet several local brewers ask some questions and sample their great products.

The session will be held on the main stage. To take part join the crowd on the stage and start sampling the beers and join the conversation. There will be an opportunity to buy some of their great products after the session, who knows what hidden gems they are bringing along ;)
