Post event FEEDBACK

Saltspring Brewery:

I had a blast at the festival and the after party: Thanks for having us and letting us show off our beer on Galiano.

You and your team are tops!! Take care, Stuart

Tod Creek Cider

We really enjoyed ourselves! Thank you for having us and for all of the extra special touches that you provided for us while at the festival.

See you next year, Tahlia Minshull

Central City Brewers & Distillers

Thank you! The event seemed to go fabulously. We also enjoyed our stay with Kris and Stephen. Thanks for setting us up with that.

My wife and I had the idea of a possibility for future festivals to have an area designated to camp for the all the Suppliers  after the event. I noticed many of the suppliers where camping anyways and it seems to be so difficult to get accommodations during the festival as there always seems to be many weddings going on. Just a thought.

See you next year! Cheers Sean
