(17 customer reviews)


Cocktail & Craft Beer Passports make great gifts and are the easiest way to start exploring local craft.

With a Craft Notes Passport, you enjoy a complimentary Craft Beer, Cocktail, or Coffee from a list of curated local breweries, distilleries, and coffee roasters.

Each volume is given a ‘theme’ and filled with completely different art, photography, and lineup of exceptional local businesses.  Simply open the book to start learning about the best in local culture, then go experience it for yourself. Have a few drinks, make some new friends, support a local business, and show your passport when the tab comes to be rewarded with a complimentary drink from each.

The “craft beer lovers” concept

VOLUME 3 was curated to feature the tight-knit NE Brewers community and some of the best “originals” that we missed in Volume 1 in addition to some of the newest and hottest breweries in the Twin Cities.  If you like beer, this is the ale guide for you

“Volume 3 really rounded out our passport program nicely. It features some of the hottest names in Minnesota beer right now. It’s our most popular edition and is super local to the Twin Cities.”

I was tired of visiting the same restraunts and spots all the time so I am grateful that with this passport I literally have a list to go through, and have fun while doing so.

How Drink Passports Work

  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!* Complimentary 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.  You’ll always have something new to do and a complimentary drink to enjoy when you do it!
