In the section “Opinion”, which publishes reflections on the cornerstone issues of modern craft brewing, we asked several brewers to speak on what should be able to cook in 2019.

Many of them are at this holiday for the first time, someone comes from year to year. It is believed that this festival sets the tone for the craft market and allows you to experience the achievements of industry giants.
