Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular hunt for volunteers
The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) is back for 2013 and looking for 500 volunteers.
Volunteers are needed across all sessions on Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May 2013. GABS particularly needs volunteers with Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) certificates to serve beer.
GABS will be presenting a range of beers, and supporting a range of breweries, from across Australia and around the world. It will promote better beer to its rightful standing where quality reigns over quantity. It will be the event on the beer festival calendar for 2013.
There will be a range of volunteer roles and each will be integral to GABS’ success. We are looking for enthusiastic people to help with:
- Front of house; greeting and processing festival attendees and providing event information
- Beer service; pouring beer and helping keep the bars working
- Beer education; supporting the Craft Beer College and people to enjoy the festival
- Brewery supporting; supporting the brewery bars that will line the festival walls
In return for volunteering, each GABS volunteer can attend a free session and will receive a festival glass, beer and food tokens. All volunteers will also receive an exclusive GABS volunteer t-shirt.
People interested in volunteering can register online.
People with any questions about volunteering at GABS can contact [email protected]
More about GABS:
GABS will be taking place over three days, and five 4½ hour sessions at the world heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Melbourne between 24-26 May 2012. It is expected to attract 12,000 – 15,000 people.
Up to 100 of the best Australian and New Zealand brewers, and some special international guest breweries have accepted an invitation to brew an original and unique beer just for the festival. Tasters will be sold along with regular glasses. Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase beers from the brewery bars that will line the walls of the Exhibition Building.
Live entertainment will be another key highlight at GABS.
GABS will be themed as a massive European-style beer hall with 4 bars and hundreds of tables and benches to create a festive and convivial atmosphere.
