    Hi all
    I can confirm there will be kegs allocated to each GABS session, so, no worries there.

    GAB is also looking for volunteers. It is a great way to get some behind the scenes experience.

    In return for volunteering, each GABS volunteer can attend a free session and will receive a festival glass, beer and food tokens. All volunteers will also receive an exclusive GABS volunteer t-shirt and food vouchers for their volunteer session.

    There will be a range of roles that include:
    • Front desk and customer service; greeting festival attendees
    • Beer service; pouring beer and serving attendees
    • Bar support; helping keep the beer flowing and the bars working well.
    In return for volunteering, each GABS volunteer can attend a free session and will receive a festival glass, beer and food tokens. All volunteers will also receive an exclusive GABS volunteer t-shirt and food vouchers for their volunteer session.

    If you are interested in volunteering you can register online at http://thelocal.com.au/gabs/volunteer.php

    You can send any questions about volunteering to volunteer@thelocal.com.au

    The GABS team have also organised a volunteer information session, with an opportunity to meet the Volunteer Coordinator and some of the GABS organising crew:
    Where: The Local Taphouse
    184 Carlisle St, St Kilda
    When: 5:00 – 7:00pm, Friday 16 March, 2012

    Stephanie, what happens if people bought presale tickets before the volunteering arrangements were announced?

    Hiya - I'll check for you. I suspect that the tickets are not refundable but am sure they are gift-able to friends and family! We are definitely keen on people from the beer community volunteering as it will add to the event.

    If you have these people volunteering to make your business money, the least you could do is refund thier fuckin' tickets
