The ConSuite Beer Troll is a long standing Staff Member position within Penguicon and is managed by the Head of Hospitality. Penguicon's Beer Trolls are responsible for not only ensuring that no underage attendee receives any of the free beer Penguicon provides during the con, but Beer Trolls also maintain the beer flow during the convention itself. Should a problem arise with the taps, the keg set ups, or if kegs need exchanging, the Beer Troll works hard to keep everything running as it should. Beer Trolls are also responsible for making sure that if you do not have Valid, Legal, Government ID - you also have no beer!

Don't feed our Beer Trolls folks, they won't ever flame back, they will simply report you.
