Vancouver, WA —Portland might get all the love, but a craft beer scene is brewing and growing just across the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington.
To that end, the Brewcouver Passport—Vancouver’s first-ever brewery map and passport—will introduce craft beer fans to breweries throughout Vancouver starting Nov. 27, 2015.
Nine Vancouver-based breweries are spotlighted on the passport. They are:
● Trap Door Brewing
● Rail Side Brewing
● Ghost Runners Brewery
● Fortside Brewing
● Loowit Brewing
● Mt. Tabor Brewing
● Old Ivy Brewery
● Heathen Brewing
● Trusty Brewing, set to open in downtown Vancouver in early 2016 (The Trusty Brewing stamp is already included as a bonus on all passports)
Beer fans who collect seven of the nine possible stamps may redeem their passport for an exclusive Brewcouver beer glass; fans who collect all nine stamps receive both the beer glass and an exclusive Brewcouver growler. Prizes can be redeemed at Brickhouse Bar & Grill in downtown Vancouver.
Other prizes include discounted food and pints, as well as a free growler, at partner outlets throughout Clark County.
Passports will be available at the aforementioned Vancouver breweries, as well as taprooms and growler fill stations, including Northwest Liquid Gold, Thirsty Sasquatch and Growler Rush.
Michael Perozzo, founder and partner of ZZoom Media, the Vancouver-based marketing firm that started the passport as a 'passion project', is excited to launch the program after months of planning. “I love this city and the brewery scene here,” he said. “And we're excited to showcase the brewers and beers that make it such an exciting community.”
The Brewcouver passport is the third passport featuring Southwest Washington breweries to launch this year. The Breweries in the Gorge Alliance developed a passport program showcasing Columbia River Gorge breweries in February, and the Lower Columbia Hop Stop Brewery Trail began promoting breweries along the Lower Columbia River in August.
