FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I bring to the meeting?
To help speed up the check-in and badge pickup process, please bring a copy of your ticket to scan--either printed or mobile. We also recommend a pen/notebook for note-taking, some business cards for networking, a credit/debit card if you're interested in some TCBG merch (we're cashless), and a sweater/jacket if you're the "gets chilly in conference centers" type. Also, see below for a note regarding beer for the trade show.
Should I bring my beer for the trade show?
Yes! It wouldn't be a Texas craft brewing industry conference without Texas craft beer. Beer is shared in the trade show hall where it's sampled out to attendees "CBC style" by TABC Certified Staff. We'll take care of sorting them into coolers with ice at the appropriate serving stations, so just plan to bring a few cases of beer Saturday morning when you arrive at check-in on the 6th floor of the Hilton. Any leftover beer will be donated to Cross Oak Group to help with the Guild's legislative and lobbying efforts.
Can I attend the Annual Meeting if I am not a member of the Guild?
Though we love all our craft beer fans, we gotta get some work done. The meeting is limited to Texas Craft Brewers Guild Voting and Professional members (i.e. brewery employees), Brewery in Planning members, Allied Trade members, and Retail Members. If you fall into one of these categories and are interested in joining the Guild and attending the meeting, please see the membership information on our website: https://texascraftbrewersguild.org/membership.)
Non-members may purchase Texas Craft Brewers Cup Awards Ceremony only tickets which grant access to the event at 5 pm on Saturday for the pre-awards reception followed by the ceremony.
Where do I park?
A paid parking garage is available onsite at the Hilton Austin and valet is available at the front of the hotel. For current rates and information please see the bottom of the hotel's website. Lower cost parking options may be available on nearby streets, garages, and surface lots in the downtown area. Learn more on the City of Austin's parking page. Attendees may want to consider carpooling, taking a ride share, or taking MetroRail to/from the downtown station directly adjacent to the Hilton.
Is on-site registration available?
Afraid not. Registration will close on 2/14/24 in order to print attendee badges and ensure a proper headcount for lunch, awards reception snacks, etc.
Who should I contact if I'm an Allied Trade Member interested in sponsoring/exhibiting?
Please email email@example.com.
