I further acknowledge and understand these Injuries and Damages cannot be eliminated in a working brewery.

I agree not to hold MBB, its Staff, or the hosting brewery/restaurant/facility liable in any way should any harm come to me.
MBB HAS NOT TRIED TO CONTRADICT OR MINIMIZE MY UNDERSTANDING OF THESE RISKS. I know that Injuries and Damages can occur by natural causes or activities of other persons, other users, staff of MBB or other third parties, either as a result of negligence or because of other reasons. I understand the risks of such Injuries and Damages involved in entering a working brewery and I appreciate that I
may have to exercise extra care for my own person and for others around me in the face of such hazards. I further understand that there are not medical personnel or medical facilities or expertise necessary to deal with the Injuries and Damages to which I may be exposed.
I further understand that on rare occasions an emergency requiring medical treatment can develop. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to provide for my own accident and health coverage while participating in the Tour and while transporting myself to and from the Tour; accident and health coverage is not provided by MBB. I hereby consent to receive medical treatment that may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident, and/or illness during the tour. I agree to pay for any medical, dental, surgical, or other hospital care, or diagnosis rendered to me. It is understood that I am required to designate emergency contact(s) and that efforts shall be made to contact my designated emergency contact(s) before rendering treatment, but that any of the above treatment will not be withheld if the designated emergency contact(s) cannot be reached.
To the fullest extent allowed by law, I agree to WAIVE AND DISCHARGE CLAIMS AGAINST, RELEASE FROM LIABILITY, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS Melvin Brewing Bellingham, LLC and its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates and their respective past and present officers, directors, stockholders, managers, members, partners, agents and employees (collectively, “Released Parties”) from and against ANY AND ALL LIABILITY on account of, or in any way resulting from, my death or personal injury relating to my participation in the brewery tour, even if caused by NEGLIGENCE of the Released Parties; Such negligence could involve (a) negligent operation and supervision of a Vehicle, (b) negligent maintenance or operation of the equipment in general, (c) negligent manufacture of or use of equipment, and (d) the negligent provision of emergency response services.
