perplexed that no one's posted anything, considering that it will probably sell out within a week of tickets being put on sale.

Interesting to see a full weekend ticket.

CONFIRMED BREWERIES

U.K FEATURE // Harbour Brewery // Hilden Brewery // Arran Brewery // Beavertown Brewery // Signature Brew // Thornbridge Brewery // Ridgeway Brewing // Monty's Brewery // Wells & Young // Magic Rock Brewery // Box Steam Brewery // Ikkley Brewery // Crate Brewery // Redemption // Siren Craft // St Austell // Arbor Ales // Hand Drawn Monkey // Roosters Brewery // Black Jack Beers // Wild Beer Co. // Tiny Rebel // Red Willow // Summer Wine // London Fields // Moor Beer // Daniel Thwaites // Quantock

I wonder if they'll be one or two tokens each to try. Hopefully everything is one token this year, at 2.50 a token, 2 tokens is the equivalent of a 20 dollar beer.

Does anyone know anything about any of those breweries? My knowledge of the UK craft scene is pretty limited.

There's already a bazillion reasons to attend, but this is the icing on the cake.

Won a pair of tix for Sunday afternoon from TBW facebook page.

I know it'll pretty well picked over by then, but I'm looking forward to it as I've never attended before.

They usually stop serving popular beers part-way through the other sessions to make sure it lasts for everyone.

Last year I tried to sample roughly in order from light to dark, only to find that the best heavy dark stuff had been cut off to preserve it. This year I'm just going to drink what sounds best first.

This year they've asked us for 2 casks of the same beer. Assuming they've done that with everyone, I think there will be less chance to running out this year.

I believe there was mention somewhere of them adding new beers at each session? Don't quote me on that though.

I think it was on their twitter feed. I believe 15 new casks for each session is what I read.
