    When you aren't chatting it up with your friends or sampling some delicious brews, test your skills at Hammerschlagen. There'll be other activities on site too including a photo booth!

    With all the beer drinking you're going to be doing, it's probably best you get some grub in you. We'll have food available for purchase. Details to come.
