I went for a few hours to the last day of the last festival and quite enjoyed 
myself.  The only thing I would do differently next time would be to take the 
day off work so I could spend more time there, the few hours wasn't really 
enough.  There were lots of nice new beers to try, not that I would recognise 
any of them again.  I would recommend it to anyone :-)
