Deschutes Brewery Street Pub – Volunteers Needed!


Saturday, October 17, 2015, 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Location: Downtown Denver, 21st Street between Blake and Larimer

The Deschutes Street Pub tour is creating a stir across the country. Denver is one of only eight cities that will host the world’s largest pop-up pub—and you can be a part of it behind the scenes! This is a fun opportunity to be a Deschutes bartender for a day, work alongside an executive chef, be a Deschutes “fun-raiser” or help with the event operations. In addition to being an integral part of this one-of-a-kind event, you also receive other great incentives, including:

  • Deschutes t-shirt (bartenders)
  • Deschutes hat (non-bartenders)
  • Choice of Deschutes water bottle or stainless steel mug
  • And of course—Deschutes beer! Volunteers will receive 2 free tokens to enjoy a beer after their volunteer shift. For bartenders working the late shift, you’ll receive a 6-pack voucher.

Deschutes Brewery is donating 100% of proceeds from beer sales to Bicycle Colorado.

Below is a list of the volunteer shifts available. To sign up, choose your preferred role and shift time, and we will confirm your request. Thank you for being part of this incredible event!


Token Sales

Shift: 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Shift: 6:00pm – 11:00pm

Volunteers will be responsible for taking money, counting back change and distributing tokens to customers. People in this position should be comfortable and excel with customer service and interacting with a steady stream of attendees. There will be security posted near the token booth to support this position as well as Bicycle Colorado staff present to answer any questions.

Set up

Shift: 9:00am – 2:00pm

Volunteers in this position will assist with a variety of event set-up tasks, including hanging banners, distributing chairs, placing tablecloths, etc. Volunteers will have to be flexible and willing to change tasks as directed by event staff.


Shift 1: 12:00pm – 6:00pm
Shift 2: 5:30pm – 11:00pm

Volunteers in this position will be supporting the bartenders, keeping the “bar” stocked with cups and other supplies. This volunteer will also alert the event staff when more beer is needed at a particular station. This position is very active and high energy, so volunteers need to be comfortable running around for their entire shift.


Shift 1: 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Shift 2: 5:30pm – 11:00pm

Volunteer bartenders will be pouring and serving beer. They will be responsible for exchanging tokens for the beer, as well as ensuring all customers receiving beer have a wristband identifying them as over 21. This will be a high energy area of the event, so volunteers will need to be able to handle the stress of a high energy situation. People who have previous bartending experience are preferred, but not required. NOTE:  Completion of the state-certified TIPS training program will be required prior to event.

ID and Wristband

Shift: 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Shift: 6:00pm – 11:00pm

Volunteers will work in groups of 2 or 3 to scan ID’s with handheld scanners and attach wristbands. These positions will be located at token booth locations. There will also be security guards to support this position, if needed.

Culinary Assistant

Shift 1: 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Shift 2: 5:00pm – 9:00pm

Volunteers will be assisting the Chef in culinary demonstrations and education sessions.


Shift: 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Shift: 6:00pm – 11:00pm

Volunteers in this position will support the photo booth opportunity at the event alongside a Deschutes staff member. Encouraging participation, monitoring for appropriateness, as well as supporting the printing of photos will all be tasks covered by this position.

Floaters and Breakers

Shift 1: 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Shift 2: 5:30pm – 11:00pm

Volunteers in this role will be expected to be flexible as they roam the event to answer questions, help with traffic flow, change out water, give other volunteers a quick break, and oversee trash collection (changing out full bins with empty ones). You will get to see a lot of the event and interact with event guests.

  • Thanks to everyone who came out wanting to do their part to make our streets safer at last night’s Bicycle-Friendly Driver course in Lakewood! We did hear feedback that our cookies were too small—we heard you, we’ll try and do better 😂.
  • Now that’s just mean. No bike (or bicyclist!) deserves this!
