The President of the Festival, Jason Hulbert, said there's been a lot of positive feedback on the festival and the beer.

"There's so many different styles; from Stouts to Porters, there's fruit beer that has cheery, peach mango, there's something for everybody. We've gotten a lot of positive comments from the individuals sampling the beer and the brewers." said Hulbert.

He went on to say that this event is the culmination of a year and a half of planning and that organizers are already looking forward to expanding the event next year.
