  1. You need to fix your hyperlink for "" - you have it pointing to ""

    1. Thanks for letting me know, it's fixed now. That was part of the press release, so I'll let the organizers know too.

  2. Not to nitpick but that wasn't the first craft beer festival in JC despite being advertised as such. There was Chilltown Beer festival a couple of years ago.

    1. You're absolutely right, I remember that now - benefitted Hudson County Child Abuse Prevention? Totally fair nitpick. I can't speak for them, but I'll update the language in my post tonight.
