Homebrew Clubs / Award Ceremony in Hotel - Alcohol Questions
« on: December 07, 2012, 11:24:41 AM »
I am a first time competition organizer for a rather large homebrew competition in Florida.  Our awards ceremony has always been held in a restaurant owned by a member of a local club who hosts their meetings or in a local macro-brewery's hall.  We have outgrown both spaces and am looking to have the ceremony and the final judging in a hotel.  This has many advantages but there seem to be many roadblocks to securing a hotel for these purposes. 

Many hotels require that they cater and provide alcohol. We are obviously going to be drinking homebrew at the awards ceremony and also for the judging of the beers.  Has anyone got any good advice on how to secure a hotel for these purposes and allow them to let us serve our own beer and possibly provide our own food?  Would this require securing insurance? 

Thanks!
