Has anyone heard if there's going to be an Alltech Craft Beer Festival this year? I heard rumours that last year's festival was likely to be the last one.
Not happening as far as I know. The festival never broke even and was a personal project of Pearse Lyons. Now that he's passed away it seems like there's no one from Alltech pushing for it to happen.
That's what I heard too, Pearse Lyons was the driving force behind the festival, with his untimely passing the impetus for a festival that never made financial sense is gone. A pity, but all the more reason to look forward to Indie Beer Week later in the year.
