Labeling Beer

Stay tuned for 2017 conference information. Sign up for email updates.

Order your Grogtags for Homebrew Con by May 25 to pick them up onsite in Baltimore.

We have once again teamed up with GrogTags to provide keg labeling tags for conference attendees, sponsors, breweries and speakers at Homebrew Con 2016.

If you are bringing beer for Homebrew Con, you need to ensure your beer is well labeled so the Cellar Crew can cellar the beer and deliver it to the proper location.Grogtag Club Night

Below is information for the different areas of the conference where beer is served and information on how you should label your beers. Each keg or case sent to the conference must have its own label.

TIMELINE

Please allow two weeks for printing and mailing between the time you fill out the online system and receive your tags.

  • If you fill out the system by Friday, May 13, your estimated deliver date will be by Friday, May 29.
  • After May 13, all tags will be picked up onsite at the Baltimore Convention Center at the cellar docks. Order by Wednesday, May 25 to pick up your tags onsite.

If for some reason you have not filled out the system by May 25, you will need to get blank tags onsite at the Baltimore Convention Center. See here for directions to the loading docks.

RETURNING BEER TO THE CELLAR

Once beer leaves the cellar, it becomes the responsibility of the owner and cannot be stored back in the cellar. Beer may only return to the cellar for one of two reasons.

1. The beer was used for Thursday or Friday Social Club and is needed for the Club Night as well. 2. The beer was used at Club Night and is needed for a Saturday Social Club shift.

Brewers should pick up all remaining beer or kegs by 12:00 am on Sunday, June 12.
