BeoirFest   Meet Europe's Brewers


Previous Events

Over the last few months we've been hosting a range of roundtables. Brewers get together, exchange beers and use those as a jumping off point for wherever the chat takes them. They've been both fun and informative.

Browse around and check them out. The full event is available for each.


You can now also get them as a Podcast for on-the-go listening pleasure!
