You’re hosting a Tending event. Now what? Read through our rules, requirements, suggestions, and tips.
Promote your event
Promote your event early and promote your often!
Create a Facebook event 6-8 weeks prior to your Tending for a Cause; add Beaver Island as a co-host if possible: business pages can add us, personal pages cannot. Let us know so we can add to our page.
Share the event on social media, your website, or calendar.
Invite your friends, family, customers, etc., to the event.
Print posters, postcards, flyers, or other assets.
Arrive at 4:30 for basic beer-tender training. If you need to come earlier for setup, please make prior arrangements. Tending events are 5PM-7PM (no exceptions).
As a guest beer-tender, you will be required to run the register, along with pouring and serving pints of beer.
Try to familiarize yourself with our beer lineup. It can be found on our Taproom page.
Only 2 guest beer-tenders are allowed behind the bar (no “shift” changes). We encourage having additional people representing your charity to mingle with patrons; it’s a great way to talk about your company and your cause.
Food and entertainment are an option. Let us know if you will be taking advantage of either.
We make beers that people don't just drink - they tell stories about. We're obsessed with the art of brewing, and aren't afraid to work harder than the other guys. At the end of the day, this is about respect - for the ingredients, for the tradition, and for the vision and experience needed to turn it all into the perfect beer.
