  1. Bring your book to each location and…
  2. …when your tab comes, the staff will stamp it and take 1 drink off your tab*.
  3. You just tip like you got a free drink, because you did:)
    (How Passports Work)
    *Great with friends!* 2-for-1 drinks are provided for each book, so multiple books may be used on a single tab (ie. 2 books gets the 1st round of 2 drinks).

*Remember* Craft Notes is about supporting great local businesses and their local staff! Many of whom love talking beer, so bring a friend, grab a spot at the bar, and settle in for a good time…

Explore at your own pace. Our Passports are the best way for you experience and support the most phenomenal local craftsmen that are helping shape Minnesota culture.  Your 2nd drink is on the house when you support local Minnesota Craft Breweries all around the state.
