Volunteer Positions -

SERVING (Both locations) - This is the most desired position at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent each year. You will be stationed at a trailer with 48 taps. This year we will provide more room behind the bar to allow movement for you to serve all 24 beers to customers. When you arrive you will be allowed to sample a few beers you may not have tried yet. After sampling a few beers, drinking is not allowed behind the counter. You will be allowed a lunch break during your shift (trust us, finding food is not a problem). You will also receive 1 shirt, and a ticket to get you into the fair. Transportation and parking is your responsibility. You will also receive 1 shirt, a gift certificate, 2 drink tickets, and a ticket to get you into the fair. Transportation and parking is your responsibility. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 5th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent or 1:00 pm for the Top of the Vine on the fairgrounds.

HIGH-END AND CIDER (Iowa Craft Beer Tent only) - NOTE: We request that you are very comfortable and knowledgeable with craft beer to signup for this trailer. This is our new feature at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent. You will be stationed at a trailer with 20 taps of rare one off beers or a section dedicated to ciders.

WINE POURING (Top of the Vine only) - Is wine your thing? Do you enjoy drinking, discussing and discussing wine? We are looking for volunteers with knowledge and passion of wine. You will be stationed at a counter with 8-10 wines available daily. When you arrive you will be allowed to sample a few of the wines you may not have tried yet. After sampling, drinking is not allowed behind the counter. You will be allowed a lunch break during your shift (trust us, finding food is not a problem).

TICKET & WRISTBANDS (Both locations) ‐ Are you good at math and comfortable handling money? Then this may be the job for you. You will be responsible for selling beer tickets to customers. If you are working nights, you will also have the best view of the band perched high upon your retro bar stools. We need to make sure everyone drinking beer is 21, it's the law. This is a pretty easy going relaxing job of checking ID's and applying wristbands. Wristbands may also be asked to help with ticket sales if it is needed. You will also receive 1 shirt, a gift certificate, 2 drink tickets, and a ticket to get you into the fair. Transportation and parking is your responsibility. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 5th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent or 1:00 pm for the Top of the Vine on the fairgrounds.

SETUP (Both locations) ‐ We added this position last year and it was a great help, and fun. You will help with whatever needs done to help setup for the fair. You must be a hard worker and willing to help with any task that needs completed. You will receive 2 drink tickets, shirt, ticket to visit the fair at a later date (no ticket is needed on setup days), and we will buy you lunch. We have become very stream lined at setting up the fair so this job has become much more relaxed over the years. You will also receive 1 shirt, a gift certificate, 2 drink tickets, and a ticket to get you into the fair. Transportation and parking is your responsibility. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 5th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent or 1:00 pm for the Top of the Vine on the fairgrounds.

TEARDOWN (Both locations) ‐ All good things must come to an end. Last year we thought a few extra hands that haven't been working for 14 days straight would of been great. You must be a hard worker, as we will take down everything except the tent before 5PM the day after the fair. We will provide lunch, drinks, a shirt, and a few other goodies to make it worth your while. At this point, we are so tired who knows what we will give you. You will also receive 1 shirt, a gift certificate, 2 drink tickets, and a ticket to get you into the fair. Transportation and parking is your responsibility. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 5th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent or 1:00 pm for the Top of the Vine on the fairgrounds.
