Our Staff

The Chief Insomniac at Meg’s Events couldn’t do it without the incredible staff that helps make SIPtemberfest a reality! This year’s team includes Aria (Booth Manager), Annalise (Volunteer Coordinator) and Melanie (Location Manager) all whom have management and creative skills that make them invaluable members of the team!  Resident Beer Guy, Sean Lawson as always offered his priceless time and insight for all things beer related.

Our Volunteers

It takes a village to raise a beer fest, right! Each year we are lucky to have a great team of volunteers that help us out with some of the less glamorous areas of event planning. They are instrumental in the set up, the management and the clean up of our event and we cannot thank them enough!

Our Beneficiary

This is our 5th year teaming with the Mad River Path Association and we are very happy to have forms such a great friendship with this wonderful organization. Not only do they serve a wonderful mission to protect and manage the area’s walkways and bike paths, as a beer fest, we felt this might help to level out our calories in/calories out ratio!
