Typical Beervana Attendees #9: The Fine Handcrafted-Beer Brewers

August 25th, 2010

Beervana is like a farmer’s market for beer. You can easily find out more about the beer you drink from the people who make it. When they’re not too busy they’re all keen to answer your questions so make the most of it.

    Good to see a photo of Chris O’Leary above, my brother and I worked with him back in the day when he was Head Brewer at Limburg Brewery in Hastings.

    There are some crackers in there Jed… Really like the one of the Mac’s team but love the ones of Ruben, “Father” and that last one of Richard especially.
