Yeah but I'll be getting on at Ashtown so not going to Brewdock.

Apparently the 30 beers are available at 4 different bars; so 120 taps...

I had a great day at this, a little let down by Irish Rail in getting home though.

Unusually Buses to and from the venue were prompt and on-time.

Hi Folks


we'd love some feedback about what to keep and what to improve on for the next one.

we know we need a lot more toilets and a few extra food vendors but we're also think about a more high tempo movie and a different act to close the day.

all feedback welcome

Definitely a different movie. Everyone I spoke to came up with a 101 "summer movies" they'd have gone with before The Shining- Jaws, Back To The Future, Star Wars, Labyrinth, Yellow Submarine were all suggested.

A more central location, or shuttle coaches running to/from Dublin city centre.

More Irish craft brewers.

More varied food vendors. Vegetarian options. Food stalls to be spaced around the event rather than concentrated in one area. Snack options (Keoghs crisps for instance).

Smoking area.

Get rid of the dwarf.

From an EFP perspective, the VIP area was great. The one thing though was that a shaded area would have been nice for anyone wanting to get out of the harsh sun. I was fine but I reckon others might have headed over the the hanger to get out of the sun. A few gazebos at the back by the railings would have sorted that.

Better toilet facilities as you said. I liked the fact that the EFP area had fancier toilets but they went out of action very quickly and it quickly became quicker to go to the main toilet area than queue up for the one portaloo that was moved in to the EFP area.

I just thought of the most perfect summer/beerfest movie: Withnail and I...

EFP area was great and staff in general were all sound on.

I don't see the point of the film at all, I'm not sure if you'll ever get one that everyone likes and I think music adds far more to the atmosphere than a film ever will. In saying that, I go to these things for the beer so I'm not too fussed what's on stage anyway.

I liked the location too, I drove out and collected the car the next day and got a taxi back into town. Didn't bother me too much travelling out there. There was 4 of us though so it worked out cheap enough for the taxi.

All said, I'll be back!
