Every year, after the festival, we publish on the website the comments made on the feedback forms. In February 2009, paid admissions totalled a record 4,666 which was 383 more than in 2008. Free admissions after 19.00 on the Friday and invited guests on the Thursday took the total number of admissions over the three days to more than 5,000 for the first time. CAMRA members accounted for 37% of paid admissions but for 62% of nominations for the Beer of the Festival (won by Bowman’s Swift One) and for 75 of the 102 comments collated below.
