It’s that time of year again! The 4th annual Brewsvegas festival is kicking off next week and I for one am pumped that it’s back.

With such a large program, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to select your itinerary and if you’re a bit of a spend-thrift like I, you tend to look for the events that are going to give you the most bang for your buck.
