Let us Curate your next Date Night.

Craft Notes Passports are best enjoyed together. Need a great date idea? We’re full of them.

Our passports have you covered for your next date. Each book offers up to 20 unique experiences you and your date will enjoy together. Each and every brewery, distillery, cafe, and restaurant was chosen because it is exceptional, and each passport was designed around a theme; you’ll never run out of ideas:)

(Matt’s favorite for Date Nights is our Minnesota Volume 2 Passport – It’s neighborhoods “off-the-beaten-path” that we don’t usually go to… We like to choose a new restaurant, then grab a drink for dessert…)

A Better Bar-Hopping Experience.

Got some friends in town? Grab some beer passports and show them a good time with a mini-bar-crawl!

They’ll enjoy exploring the best of the city while guzzling complimentary drinks. And while we recommend you use our passports to investigate one place at a time, they can be used to maximize a beautiful day. Also, you’ll have a little keep-sake from the event; our passports are printed high-quality and designed to be both a journal and guidebook.

Gather some friends, Grab your passport, and make the most out of a night out.

Your crew needs somewhere new to go. YOU have the best ideas in your pocket.

We believe a little knowledge adds alot of flavor, and our passports help you maximize your night out with your friends. You’ll learn a bit about the founders, get an idea of something to do, drink recommendations… And when your tab comes, they’ll even take a drink off (because everyone loves it when the bartender buys you a drink:).

So gather your friends and go make some memories. We’re here to help guide you.

Learn about the stories and people making the things we love.

Our Mission is to highlight local people that are inspiring local culture. Their ideas and passions are what influence trends. It’s fun to be able to see what they’re making.

One of the things I love the most about local craft culture is that many of the people behind it are really just living their passion. Normal people that started with a hobby, then perfecting what they do and sometimes when it’s really exceptional, it kicks off a national trend…

– Matt Dowgwillo, Founder
