Is the Poznań Beer Expo and Street Food Spot an event for me?
YES! At the Poznań Beer Expo, people with a basic knowledge of beer, enthusiasts as well as home brewers and professionals will all have a great time. It is an opportunity to talk, exchange experiences and learn, but most of all it is about tasting and broadening your beer horizons! Street Food Spot, on the other hand, brings together enthusiasts of food served amid the hustle and bustle of the city – straight from a truck or tent.

Will there be any souvenirs to buy?
Yes! There will be several cool gadgets! :)
Do I have to bring my own glass?
At the Poznań Beer Expo, you will have several opportunities to buy or rent a glass for beer tasting. Many breweries also sell beer glasses at their stands. However, if you feel like it, you may bring along your favourite tasting glass with you.
How much will a beer cost?
Beer prices are set by the individual exhibitors.
Can one pay with a credit card?
Payment by credit card is possible when purchasing tickets at the ticket offices, and at very few stands. Most of the stands do not have electronic payment terminals, and as such the primary form of payment at the Fair is by cash. Fortunately, there is a cash machine (PKO) at the entrance to the Fair complex, and the band allows for multiple entries. We accept payment with coins! :)
Will there be a place to wash glasses?
Scrubbers (i.e. places for washing glasses) will be located in several spots. We encourage you to rinse your glasses between successive tasting of beers.
Can minors enter the fairgrounds?
We invite the entire family to the Poznań Beer Expo and Street Food Spot. Keep in mind, however, that minors may attend the Fair only in the company of an adult guardian and they will receive a different colour of bands at the entrance – it will be a signal for exhibitors that they should not sell beer to them. Please note that alcohol consumption by minors is strictly prohibited.
Where can I find the rules?
The rules of the event are available for download here. Additionally, the rules are printed and available for viewing before the entrance to the expo hall.
