Craft Beer Passport offers discounted pints in Toronto
The Craft Beer Passport is available for $20 starting today and offers holders a chance to visit participating Toronto bars for discounted craft beer. Bars will have a selection of beers available to passport holders for just $2.00 per 12oz serving (so, technically, 3/4 of a pint). Show your passport, get that beer stamped, and save some dough on craft beer.
The list of 20 participating bars includes some of the best beer bars in Toronto, including Get Well, Tequila Bookworm, and Thirsty and Miserable and will provide access to discounted pints of local beer.
While it may seem a touch gimmicky to turn something as intrinsically rewarding as drinking into a scavenger hunt, the passports do claim to offer a comprehensive field guide to Toronto's craft beer scene and even if that claim falls flat, at the very least, if you actually visit all the bars in the passport you'll save roughly $40 - money that can then be spent on more beer.
"I think that the craft beer scene is so momentous right now that it can be overwhelming for some people to decide just where to dive in" says creator Mike Stulberg, a street artist and soon to be OCADU Master of Design student. "And, often enough, some really great bars get overlooked. I see the Craft Beer Passport as a fun way for people to explore Toronto, discover new bars and support the local brewers of craft beer."
An official launch party for the Craft Beer Passport will take place on the evening of June 1st at The Piston and will include samples from a number of Ontario craft breweries, beats by Memorecks, craft beer-related door prizes and Craft Beer Passports on sale.
