Health + Safety Information

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for Participation

All 2022 Homebrew Con attendees, exhibitors & staff will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or supply a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours of arrival. 

You do not need to show proof of vaccination at time of registration. The Brewers Association has partnered with CLEAR to utilize the Health Pass feature, to provide easy proof of COVID-related health insights for faster entry. See below for Health Pass by Clear and onsite verification information.

We will follow local and federal guidelines in force at the time of the event regarding other safety protocols.

1 shot for J&J, two for Pfizer and Moderna. 
Currently, booster shots are not required to be considered “fully vaccinated”. If CDC changes the definition of “fully vaccinated” to include boosters, we will too.
