On this GBH Sightlines episode, we're visiting with several people to get their perspectives and experiences following what some are calling beer's own Fyre Festival. That event, a luxury-music-festival-turned-disaster that spawned two separate documentaries showcasing its incredible collapse, may be on another level than the inaugural Untappd Beer Festival, but it didn't stop some angry beer fans from making that connection on May 4.
We’re talking with two festival-goers, a vendor pouring for a brewery, and one of the event’s organizers. The goal? To better understand what it was like on the ground and whether or not those dire comparisons are actually warranted. Listen in.
