SMALL FOOTPRINTS, BIG IMPACT.

Personally, this volume inspired me. I spoke with over 100 different Minnesotans to find out who was truly committed to sustainability and, while they all seemed to want to do something, there were just a handful that made sustainability a core value of what they do.

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!  

 

“The breweries, distilleries, and restaurants we chose for our 1st Special Edition were selected because of their company’s mission. They are committed to making the industry more sustainable. I hope that you’ll share these stories and support them for their efforts. Hopefully soon, we’ll be able to write similar things about every brewery, distillery, and restaurant in Minnesota as more places follow their lead…”
