Great American Beer Festival® Code of Conduct

The Great American Beer Festival is dedicated to providing a world-class festival experience for everyone. All event participants are expected to conduct themselves with integrity, courtesy, and respect for others. This applies to all attendees, brewers, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and staff.  

We do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or violence in any form. All communication should be appropriate and inclusive for all audiences. Do not insult, defame, or intimidate others. Exclusionary or discriminatory language, jokes, or imagery that perpetuate harmful stereotypes based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy or maternity, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, age, disability, physical appearance, body size or any other protected characteristic are not condoned. 

Participants violating the event code of conduct may be asked to leave the Great American Beer Festival or be prohibited from attending future Brewers Association events at the sole discretion of Brewers Association.  

Thanks for helping to make this a welcoming event for all!
