Thanks to our Sponsors

The Beer Happening doesn't just happen, if you'll pardon the pun.

It couldn't go on without the hard work of the volunteers who put it together, man the pumps and look after you while you are here. Our thanks to them and to the sponsors and organisations who supported us.

They all make it possible for us to say to you, "Welcome to the Happening and cheers."
