AWOP Payment System

When you arrive at BrewDay you will be issued with an AWOP Wristband, this is our cashless payment system – if you have pre purchased a loaded ticket, there will automatically be $30 on your band, it is already activated and you can start purchasing.

For those that need to load BrewDay currency onto your AWOP band you will need to visit an AWOP kiosk, activate the band and load with money. Please note that AWOP will charge a $3 activation fee at this stage.

At BrewDay wristbands will be different colours per session, depending on what you have purchased. There will be colours for the following:

  • Colour 1: Pre purchased currency band that is loaded with currency enabling you to purchase any product, including alcohol.
  • Colour 2: Wristband that enables you to purchase any product, including alcohol.
  • Colour 3:  Wristband that denotes you as a person under 18yrs of age, you won’t be able to purchase alcohol – but you can purchase everything else.

If you have a colour 1 or colour 2 wristband and during the course of the day, you look like you have had enough alcohol, or are misbehaving – we will “Yellow Card” you, this means you won’t be able to purchase alcohol anymore.

Servings will be tastes of 75ml and glasses of 280ml for beer and 50ml and 150ml for wine.

Prices will range from $2 for tastes and from $5 up to $10 for full pours. The higher the ABV, the higher the price.
