Want to have a blast, meet new people, and earn a free t-shirt and free entry to the 2023 BrewFest Waterfront District? 


Join our Volunteer "Beertender" Crew and be a part of the fun assisting fellow beer lovers with one of Lorain County's only craft beer festival!


BrewFest is bringing LOTS of breweries, cideries, and wineries, along with a smorgasbord of food, games, PLUS live entertainment to Lorain's Black River Landing on Saturday August 12, 2023. 

It takes 200+ Volunteers to run the BrewFest each year.  All beertenders must be 21 and over.

Here are the details:

UNIFORM: Casual dress, we’ll provide a cool soft cotton t-shirt you’d actually wear after the event!  IF REGISTERING AFTER JULY 25th, T-SHIRT SIZE MAY NOT BE GUARANTEED.

TRAINING: Once you arrive and check in, we’ll assign you volunteer tasks that include: Pouring beer/wine/cider samples, restocking ice, emptying rinse station buckets, ensuring cleanliness of tables, checking IDs, taking tickets*, helping with wristbands, programs and sample glasses, set up and tear down of tables and chairs.Experience would be great, but not necessary, though a great attitude is!

TASTING: Volunteers are allowed to conservatively taste to familiarize yourselves with the flavors you’ll be pouring, you will receive tickets to hand in for samples, and a souvenir sample glass.

ARRIVAL: Please arrive no later than 10:00am to familiarize yourself with the event layout and ask questions, we’ll gather the troops for a quick pre-event meeting. Tickets must be taken from patrons to receive samples, no exceptions. Not taking tickets is a violation of an ordinance that can not be tolerated, violators will be escorted from the event, and may face ticketing/fines/prosecution.
