Labeling Beer

All beer dropped off to AHA Beer Services must be properly labeled before entering the cellar. Labels are generated using one of the AHA Beer Services Labels spreadsheets and must be printed and attached before dropping off your beer.

Beer labels identify you, your mobile phone number, your homebrew club or seminar, and your beer. Most importantly, the label identifies where and when your beer is delivered.
