    They made a pretty good session IPA cask for the CAMRA spring sessional festival a couple months back, but I've not tried anything since.

    Definitely one to watch. Their Saison is pretty nice and they have a bunch of it aging in red wine barrels with brett right now. :cool:

    Thanks for the info. It seems your posted links work better or the one I tried before just wasn't working. This is something I will definitely consider if my schedule works out... so much to see and do and so little time.

    .... I think it would be the first time in ages I would go to a festival and only had like 2 or 3 of the breweries beers (when I lived in Wisconsin, Howe Sound was distributed there).

    Sounded like a good time - guess that list was just a provisional one, but looks like some great stuff got poured. Totally agree re: Siren, that's a spectacular brew.

    This also caught my eye. Hope we're about to see it in bottles again...
