What is GCBW?

The 6th installment of Greenville Craft Beer Week will host many events over ten days (April 26 - May 5, 2019) which will take place all over the Greenville area. As a participant, you can attend any event, which will be posted to the GCBW website as soon as it registers. The events will be venue specific, so please pay attention to whether they are free to attend, ticketed, pay-as-you-go, or other. Individual venues will be promoting the events, as well as GCBW. But any ticketed events will be done through someone other than GCBW, so please pay attention.

What is the focus of this year’s GCBW?

The focus of GCBW has always been to promote the local craft beer scene in Greenville while also educating about the many benefits that craft beer brings to the Upstate. Due to the explosion of the scene across town, there are many amazing venues to have a great experience. This year celebrates community and all that Greenville has to offer.

Is there a limit on the number of sponsors?

No, not this year. This year we aren’t doing tiered sponsorships. Instead, only individual events may register.

Is there a limit on the number of events for the week?

Somewhat. We have ten (10) days of events, with a maximum of ten (10) per day. So, there’s plenty of room to have a lot of events.

When is sponsorship payment due?

It is due immediately at registration. In fact, you can’t register without payment as that is what secures a spot on the calendar.

How do you sign up to sponsor an event?

We have a page for that! Go here to register for an event. Once you register, the GCBW team will put the event online and contact you if there are any questions or concerns.

Any catch to sponsoring an event?

Nope. Sponsoring is open to anyone in the Greenville area so long as the event will focus on independent craft beer, be hosted at a Greenville venue or venue near Greenville, and focus on local beer!

What to do if you’re from out-of-town and want to hold an event?

Welcome to Greenville! We’re glad to have you. This year, we’re going back to our roots and focusing on what makes local Greenville-area craft beer so good. We apologize, but hope you’ll support the week!

What kind of events is GCBW looking for?

For the 6th year of GCBW, we want sponsors to be creative and focus on local.

What if the day I want to hold my event already has too many events registered?

Please contact us and we'll suggest an alternate arrangement.

What if you’re running a weeklong special?

Great! We’ll count it as one event.

What if you want to have other events at your venue during GCBW?

Please do! You’re free to promote them as you would any event at your venue, we just ask that you follow the spirit of other GCBW events.

Does GCBW need volunteers?

Maybe! Events are venue specific, so check with them. We are always looking for those who might want to be involved with GCBW and serve this year or in the future. So, just send us an email!
