We’ve created Craft Notes to be a self-guided tour book, designed to enrich your experiences and help you learn about and appreciate local craft culture as you visit each place at your own pace.

Each book has it’s own theme and is curated.

Enjoy Drink Rewards (Good for over 12 months from purchase date)

We get it. You’re busy.

Visiting just 2-3 of the included venues more than pays for passport cost, but the whole point is to check them all out!

(jump to FAQ)

Wrangling your crew to try something new takes time, don’t waste your money on something that expires soon.

We want you to choose the experience that best fits for you, and you’ll have over 12 months from the date of purchase to enjoy complimentary drinks from every craftsman in the passport. (how it works)

Stories never expire.

You’ll enjoy our pocket-sized passports, the insider-knowledge we give you, and the recommendations that come straight from the makers themselves. Because these are curated, we only pick locals that are committed to their products, the industry, and being around for awhile.

Do something old school and write in it.

Each Craftsman in the passport has their own notes and journal section and the books are made to last. Each is screen-printed by a local artist on high-quality, durable, recycled paper. They are made to be written in and durable enough to be kept.

Need a spot for a date night or a night out? @cancanwonderland has it all! Food, drinks, and entertainment! There is a full 18-hole artist-designed mini golf course, arcade games galore, and a 36 self-pouring cocktail and beer wall! There’s always something new to do it try! . We made it just in time to see Can Can X-Mas Land! “A Joyous Sensory Overload” and it was magical! (Ends tomorrow) Though, we didn’t get in for mini-golf, we still got a great cocktail thanks to @craft_notes, Brewery and Distillery passport, and stuck around for some karaoke🎤 🎶 And if your tee time is still a couple hours away you can always stop upstairs and grab a beer @blackstackbrewing! 🍻 . . . #beer #beerpics #beerwall #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #craftcocktails #cocktails #cancanwonderland #datenight #nightout #craftnotes #craftnotesmn #drinklocal #drinklocalbeer #mnmade #minnesotamade #minnesotacraftbeer

FAQ about Expiration

How Long do I have to claim the drink rewards in my passport?

At LEAST 12 months from purchase.

Will you run out of passport volumes/Will the “Sold Out” passports come back in stock?

Each passport volume is a LIMITED RUN edition. When they sell out, they are gone and will not be reprinted.

I’m confused. Passports “have no expiration” but I should use them in 12 months? Explain.

You are correct. And you asked for it:)

Passports have no “set” expirations. Each book tells a story, and stories never expire. But. We recommend use in 12 months from purchase.

Why? Partners sign a contract to offer the drink reward “until at least notified, or 4 years.”

Most partners will allow usage forever (passports are limited run, and partners agree to a “number” more than a “date”), but we didn’t want to guarantee that. So instead: we encourage you to use within 12 months.

So why make it confusing? We try not to, we’re just trying to walk a line between “no expiration” for you and “can expire” for partners.
