Volunteer for Drink Craft Beer Springfest: A Celebration of Hops

Author // Jeff Wharton

With Drink Craft Beer Springfest: A Celebration of Hops getting closer every day, we've been getting more and more requests on how people can be involved. If you want to be a part of the Drink Craft Beer community and help put on a great event, then we'd love to have you. One of the most important parts of a fest is having great volunteers, and Drink Craft Beer wants you!

Springfest is being held in Boston, MA at Space 57 (200 Stuart Street, Boston, MA) on Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12. We need volunteers for the following sessions (times are when we need the volunteers for, not the actual session times as we'll need volunteers there early for prep and to stay a little late to help clean up):

Set Up: April 11, Noon-5pm
VIP Session: April 11, 5pm-11pm
Session 2: April 12, 11am-5pm
Session 3: April 12, 5pm-10pm
Break Down: April 12, 10pm-whenever we're done, probably 11pm or so (we'd like these people to have volunteered for Session 3 as well)

NOTE: All volunteers MUST be 21+ with a valid ID. Nobody will be allowed into the fest without proper ID.

Volunteers will get:

  • Admission to the session that you're volunteering at
  • Tasting cup
  • Staff meal from one of the food vendors
  • Staff t-shirt
  • Chance to meet the brewers
  • Meet other craft beer drinkers

What will volunteers do?

We're going to need people to help set up on Friday and tear down on Saturday. Additionally, we need volunteers for all three sessions to help brewers, manage lines, monitor the fest, help out attendees and various other jobs.

How do you sign up?

Email volunteer@drinkcraftbeer.com with the following info (we need ALL of this information to process your sign up):

  • Name
  • Cell phone #
  • Who you are and why you want to volunteer
  • Are you TIPS Certified (those already certified get priority for the VIP Session pouring jobs)
  • Past experience (Have you volunteered at other fests? Are/were you a bartender? Anything you think makes you especially qualified.)
  • Which sessions are you available for? (Please note, in an effort to let more people volunteer, you can only volunteer for 2 of the 3 actual fest sessions. Set up and breakdown don't count.)
  • T-shirt size (we have men's and women's sizes)
We will approve volunteers as the applications come in. We only need a set number of volunteers, once we fill that number, applications are closed. So apply soon!

NOTE: Applying to volunteer does not guarantee that you will be approved.

Craft Beer & Chocolate for Charity: Feb 7th 2014

Author // Devon

For the last two years Somerville's Taza Chocolate and Drink Craft Beer have celebrated the lead up to Valentine's Day by pairing beer and chocolate in an annual event to raise money for The Greater Boston Food Bank. Last year we had 700 people attend and raised $3600 for the charity. Well this year we're going to blow that number away!

On Friday, February 7th, 2014 from 7-9:30pm Drink Craft Beer and Taza Chocolate are taking over the Somerville Armory in Somerville, MA...but we won't be alone. We'll be hosting:
  • 10 craft brewers, each providing a beer paired with a Taza Chocolate.
  • 5 local chefs to create custom bites incorporating Taza Chocolate.
  • Plus we might have at least one more surprise up our sleeves.


For just $25, you'll get:
  • Unlimited 2oz samples of 10 craft beers paired with Taza Chocolates
  • Sample each bite from 5 local chefs
  • Meet the crew from several of your favorite breweries and local restaurants
  • A chance to provide meals to local families in need
  • 100% of your ticket price goes directly to charity!



Tickets are limited to 330 so be sure to get yours fast! This event will sell out.

Cheers,
Devon and Jeff
Co-Founders of Drink Craft Beer

Special thanks to: our partner, Taza Chocolate, for providing all of the chocolate; Massachusetts Beverage Alliance for providing funding for the venue and event costs.
