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 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. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 6th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent on the fairgrounds.

TICKET & WRISTBANDS ‐ 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. 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 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. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 6th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent on the fairgrounds.

SETUP ‐ 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, gift certificate and 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. Transportation and parking is your responsibility. The shirt and gate ticket will be handed out at an all volunteer meeting at noon on August 6th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent on the fairgrounds.

TEARDOWN ‐ 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 6th at the Iowa Craft Beer Tent on the fairgrounds.
