Thanks for once again arranging this - we are a few who have been coming down for this all three times this has happend so far.

I’m impressed to see how this has evolved since the first "open brewhouse" event.

Once again this was worth travelling for

I’d like to offer a huge thanks to you and the rest of the crew for putting on an exceptional fest! I definitely plan on making the trip again next year (hopefully my luggage and more importantly beer for trades will arrive on time next year).

Cheers - Keith

Thanks again for the keg of Grassrooth Black IPA, I really really liked it and had quite a few of them, along with Twickenham Spring Ale. Ideal beers when working the kitchen.

I am glad you liked the beer. I enjoyed just so many great beers at the fest myself. The spring ale at the end of the night in the smoking lounge was a real treat.

My thanks not only go to the more than 500 visitors, that were again, and as usual, just fantastic. The organization that Glenn, Davy and spouses put together at this sublime location, is without more words, just phenomenal. The voluntary helpers did also a tremendous job, and I admire everybody’s courage for raising this year’s festival to the absolute top where it now belongs.

It is going to be very hard to do better at the next edition, but the enormous over enthusiast crowd, the many bus’s, top location, brewers from all over, gives us the courage to give it a try.

Many thanks also go to the owners of the castle, who were great hosts, and where Struise has a lot of admiration for their action & energy, given their advanced age.

At last, we cannot thank all of you enough for the many special beer gifts we received. When we got home, we accounted more than 2 crates full of special releases...

Thanks again & cheers, Urbain at Struise

Hey Glenn, thanks so much to you, your team and all the brewers for putting on yet another fantastic pre-ZBF! The site was great this year and the quantity and quality of beers available were second to none. I am already looking forward to the fest for 2011! It was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new friends as well. I only wish it didn’t go by so quickly but that is what happens when you have a great time.

Also, Glenn thank you very much for the wonderfully thoughtful gifts for my wife and I! We will be sure to take pictures when the little one arrives!

Cheers,
Greg
