Bars

  • Depending on how many kegs you are bringing, each club has access to part or all of a 12-tap bar.
  • Ball lock kegs are preferred, as the bar is already set up with that type of tapping hardware.
  • Your club’s bar will have an 8’ tall pipe behind the booth. This metal pipe allows you to hang banners or other decorations behind the booth.
  • Tents are not allowed.
  • DO NOT bring your own serving equipment, tools, CO2, etc. This is provided for you.
  • Kegs are brought out cold; ice is not provided. Trust us; the beer will stay cold.
  • Pitchers and dump buckets are provided for every bar.
  • Open flames and smoke machines are strictly prohibited in Social Club.
  • Be creative, but be respectful in your beer signs. Anything that demeans or is disrespectful of others may result in removal from Social Club.

Food

  • Clubs are not allowed to bring in food samples for Social Club.
  • Food will be available for purchase inside Homebrew Expo & Social Club.
