  1. Why are the non-drinking (i.e. designated drivers) always charged so much and get nothing? No water, no discount or free sandwich (for example). Seems people should be rewarded for being responsible.

  2. You are charging way to much for this. 40 pp would be better. Especially since it’s the first one and not many breweries are listed here. What were you thinking? 25 for DD. So I can follow people around and listen to music . Looks like there might not be a 2nd annual NJ BEER fest. Good luck
