Part of the mission for the festival is to educate people about the brewing process. What little fact about beer brewing do you think most people don't know?

Brewers used to check the temperature of their brew by dipping their thumb in it (this was before the invention of the thermometer), to establish whether it's ready for adding yeast. This is where we get the phrase "The Rule of the Thumb". We can neither confirm nor deny that this is the reason why the Legends brewer can often be seen sucking his thumb.
