    Hi, not sure where to send typo info so I’m leaving a comment -> half the breweries are mentioned twice and half are mentioned once (part of one of the columns got duplicated, it looks like)

    So if I understand this correctly, I will pay my fee to get into the fair & then pay another fee to enter the craft beer garden & receive 2 tokens or 3 if I buy online? And then I can buy additional taster tickets for $1.50 per? Thanks.
