Customer Reviews

Nice place
Doug P. · August 29, 2014
Appreciated the wide variety of vendors at the event but would have liked the beer and wine vendors to be alternated versus separated to allow more sampling along the way for those who liked just beer or just wine. Could some more tables/chairs be put up to allow for seating during the expo? It is nice to take a break to rest part of the way through. Overall, we were pleased with our experience and enjoyed tasting a variety of items from several places - food, wine, and beer. Thank you!
