Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our event.

Every year, a small army of passionate beer and events fans donate their time to help keep GABS running smoothly, and we greatly appreciate their contribution to the fabric of the event.

If you’re interested, we’d love you to volunteer for GABS 2019. Not only do you get to meet and work with like-minded beer fans, there are some great perks too. 

What does volunteering involve?

We’re looking for people to help support the brewery stands, work on the doors, help out at craft beer and cider seminars, set up the venue, and support GABS staff. 

What’s in it for you? 

As well as working at a great festival with other craft beer and cider fans, you will get 2 free entry passes to another GABS session for you and a friend, a volunteer t-shirt and GABS Festival Glass, plus an invitation to the volunteer after-party! If you're working a shift that finishes mid-session, you're more than welcome to stick around and enjoy the rest of that session as well.

What's new in 2019?

We’re super excited to bring GABS up to Brisbane for the first time this year! And we would love your help to make this an exciting and memorable first year experience for everyone involved!

Based on feedback from previous years, we no longer have volunteers working on the bars as we’ve found these shifts can be quite exhausting and demanding during busier sessions. However if you are interested in working on the bar, please head to our staff recruitment page here.
