I've signed up and it's just me. I'm entered as Holy Brewing. I'm taking two brews with me but have no idea what I've gotten myself into. Would you guys that have done it before have any suggestions on what else to bring? Extra stuff like paper towels or a Tablecloth? Signage?

Looking forward to it. Hope to see y'all there.

I'm in the same boat. I know they said that they'll have table, 2 chairs, tasting glasses, and a rinse pitcher. I dont know if they'll have banners/signs/etc. for each brewrer. I'm also bringing my brew in bottles because I'm not quite kegging yet. Would bringing it in coolers with ice be the best option?

My group participated last year, and we are going again this year. Each setup is unique, and it is up to you how complicated you want to get. There is everything from a single guy at a table serving beer out of a bottle, to people with 10+ kegs, serving through portable cooling systems, and one group I saw with a huge galvanized water trough full of ice and beer. Some people have banners and giveaways, some people have boards posted with their beer descriptions, and some people don't have anything but their smile and free beer.

They provide the items you listed, but one thing I would really recommend bringing is extra water for you to: A) drink, and B) rinse out people's cups. It gets hot out there, lots of people are drinking, and it helps to have water available along with your beer. How you dress up your spot is up to you. This is more of a social event and fundraiser. At the end of the day, you are giving away beer for free, so no one is going to complain.

Congratulations to Holy on his Swamp Donkey getting 3rd place. If I remember correctly, I think it was 3rd in IPAs.

Well done, sir.

Thanks to all of the advice on here. Didn't place but still had a great time with lots of compliments as well as 28 tokens. I even got to serve my beer to local celebrity, Vaden Todd Lewis of the Toadies. I'll be back next year and do even better!

Holy Brewing Here, Our team had a blast Sunday and we were lucky enough to place with Swamp Donkey, which ended up as third in Lagers. I enjoyed meeting you guys at necktie and trooper. Hope to see y'all again.

I didn't get much of a chance to leave my booth, so I didn't see many others. Didn't realize someone here was for Neck Tie. I was across the street at Zreet St.
