The Volunteer Stewards assist with the Australian International Beer Awards judging process and are an integral element of ensuring a successful awards. The program is also a terrific opportunity to become more involved in the beer community, to meet and engage with key figures in the industry and to get a ‘behind the scenes’ experience of one of the world’s largest beer awards.
A passion for beer is about the only ‘qualification’ required although the ability to competently pour six beers of an identical nature and then carry them on a special no-spill holder over a short distance is preferable. Lunch is provided along with aprons. Volunteers need no special uniforms with black pants and a white shirt all that is required.
In addition, just knowing that you are part of a process that helps to put the Australian beer community on the international map is a bit of a buzz. For the first time, this AIBA will see the judging component carried out over a single week rather than three, allowing for volunteers to plan their involvement more easily.
To express your interest and to get further details contact Mike Conolly 03 9281 7461 [email protected] Judging will take place between Monday April 8 and Friday April 12 2013. Expressions of interest close on March 31st.
