There will also be a range of vendors selling a variety of delicious cuisines and during all sessions of GABS, the ‘Craft Beer College’ presents a series of free educational and fun seminars - Expect to see seminars on beer and food pairing, cooking with beer, topical discussions as well as the popular ‘Q & Ales’.
