BeoirFest   Where Brewers Chat Beer


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.
