Welcome Volunteers

Please Check this page for Important Information, Instructions and more

Thanks for joining High Country Beer Fest for our 12th year! High Country Beer Fest has made significant impact in the local community and brewing community through donations we have made to local charities and to education in fermentation sciences.
We could not do this without you. Thank you!


Pick or Change Your Shift

Register If you Haven’t already

NEW THIS YEAR!- All volunteers (even invitation-only volunteers) must register. If you picked your shift in Sign-Up genius but have not registered as a volunteer, we still need you to register now. Please do this BEFORE the Fest to save everyone time.

Tell us your t-shirt size If you haven’t Already

If you registered as a volunteer after June 19th, 2019 then we should have your t-shirt size from the registration form.
If you registered BEFORE 6/19/19 then we need your T-shirt size

The link below is the general Sign-Up genius for volunteers who learned about us through FB, Friends, or just somewhere out there.

If you are part of the Fermentation Science Club, a Cross-fit Volunteer, or if were invited by a board member, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Travis Berk- mtbmanning@gmail.com for a specific Sign-up Genius link.

IF you signed up earlier but need to bow out, PLEASE UPDATE your shift to reflect the change so we can fill your space!

All the stuff…….



We will have a check in booth. Look for the “Volunteers” sign and go there. We need to choose a location to specifify where to go????

  • We will check your ID and give you necessary instructions

  • If you are entering the festival first and then volunteering we will hold your ID or Credit Card as assurance that you will drink responsibly (for free) and then come back to fulfill your commitment

  • You will be given a wrist band to show you are of-age and volunteering

  • You will be given a free HC Beer Fest Volunteer T-Shirt to wear while volunteering


Volunteers get the best of both worlds because you get to participate in making the world a better place AND you get to enjoy the a few hours of High Country Beer Fest absolutely free.

Here is how it works: No matter what shift you are working, you check in with us at the volunteer booth when you arrive then follow the instructions below based on when you are scheduled to volunteer.

Pre-Fest Volunteers: If you are volunteering BEFORE you go into the festival:

Post-Fest Volunteers: If you are volunteering AFTER you go into the festival

If you went into the fest first set an alarm on your phone,


We have plenty of parking available in the main lot as you come in. We do not want people coming and going from the side lot this year. DO WE WANT TO DESIGNATE SOME SPACES FOR VOLUNTEERS IN THE MAIN LOT?


Do we need Information about what to do if a guest is beligerent, sloppy, exit strategy etc??


  • Wear sun screen

  • Drink water - Please bring a water bottle in order to stay hydrated while you work and play. Water Stations will be set up throughout the festival. Please drink as much as you need. (DO WE GIVE OUT WATER BOTTLES TO VOLUNTEERS?)

  • Wear comfortable shoes that are suitable for mushy grounds

Specific Job Instructions

THIS IS OPTIONAL if we have jobs that need instructions in addition to what they already know from Sign up genius. Is this needed?
