Effective October 1, 2022, the Brewers Association (BA) will no longer require proof of vaccination status or a negative test result to attend a Brewers Association-produced in-person meeting or event. Mask-wearing at Brewers Association meetings and events is encouraged but will be optional.
Instead, the Brewers Association expects attendees to take responsibility themselves for following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on measures to reduce infection from COVID-19 and to protect against severe complications.
For more information, please review the guidelines at:
Attendees who are not up to date on vaccinations are asked to take an at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen test before traveling to any Brewers Association meeting or event and should not attend if they test positive or have symptoms of COVID-19. The Brewers Association will not be requiring proof of these measures, however, but calls on the brewing community to act responsibly and with consideration for the health and safety of others.
The Brewers Association cannot be held liable for COVID-19 cases arising because of event attendance.
The Brewers Association Meetings & Events Entry Policy is subject to change based on COVID-19 community levels and any updated guidance from CDC and/or federal or state officials in localities hosting a Brewers Association in-person meeting or event. Guidance on COVID-19 is continually updated, and the Brewers Association appreciates the understanding of its stakeholders as we seek to provide valuable, timely face-to-face programming while prioritizing the health and safety of attendees.
