  1. It’s a shame the wine selection at the Beer Festival was emphasised before now. I’ve spoken to a couple of people who said they would have come had they known earlier. Unfortunately they’re now committed to other things but perhaps this is something to think about when advertising the next one?

    • I talked about the wine pop up in most updates and posts about the event going back about 4 months.
