Explore Edmonton’s Breweries using a Brewery Pass for freebies and discounts

Shares
There’s never been an easier and more fun way to experience Edmonton’s craft breweries—with Edmonton Tourism’s new Brewery Pass!

The Brewery Pass is an incentive program that encourages you to visit 10 Edmonton area breweries. You download the free pass online (from your phone), then use your phone to check in at the breweries for freebies and discounts. If you check in at all 10 stops, you’ll get a free Explore Edmonton T-Shirt (while supplies last).

It’s that easy!

I partnered with Edmonton Tourism to test drive the Brewery Pass (I do this hard and important work to make exploring even easier for you lovely readers lol).

Sign up for your free Brewery Pass by clicking my link here. (I don’t get anything extra for people who sign up with my link, I just like knowing how many people signed up with my links, lol).

When you get to each brewery, just tell them you’ve got the Edmonton Tourism Brewery Pass and you need a pin number to check in / redeem your discounts! They give you the number, you input it into your pass, and it registers the brewery as being checked off. You put the same pin number in to get your freebies at that brewery!

If you’re into beer AND (or) into collecting things, this Brewery Pass is perfect.

Mike and I went on our own little brewery patio crawl (highly recommend you do the same!) to put the pass in action, making stops at: Campio Brewing (downtown Edmonton), S.Y.C. Brewing (west Edmonton) and Endeavour Brewing (St. Albert).

These are just three of the ten breweries included in the incentive program.

We like getting flights to try a bunch of different brews!

We chose our Edmonton brewery crawl stops based on what was open on a Sunday (many breweries are closed Sunday/Monday so be sure to check hours of operation when you plan your visits!) as well as what had food or what places were new-to-us, and what was the most convenient route for us on that particular day.

We love Campio’s food offerings (LOVE their pizza, kettle chips, fried pepperoni and KD popcorn—all must tries if you haven’t yet. I mean their burgers are also killer. Really 10/10 all around).

We chose S.Y.C. and Endeavour because we had never been there before! S.Y.C has chips and pretzels you can get with your beer (not made in-house—so dogs are welcome here!), and Endeavour has a small food menu including chips with housemade salsa (really good!) and various tacos (I tried the Pale Ale Beef Tacos and would definitely get again!)

Check out my 15-second video recap of our little brewery crawl!

Edmonton’s craft beer scene has exploded over the past few years, and this Brewery Pass really celebrates all the great breweries we have in the city. Edmonton Tourism is inviting you to discover the city’s craft beer scene “one pint at a time” with this free digital savings pass.

Speaking of craft beer scene exploding, I figured this blog post would be a perfect opportunity to mention my close friend Scott Messenger’s new book: Tapping the West: How Alberta’s Craft Beer Industry Bubbled Out of an Economy Gone Flat. It’s a wonderful read on our province’s craft beer industry written from one of the very best writers I’m fortunate to know.

Scott’s a really funny guy in a clever, self-deprecating kind of way, and his clever tone and funny stories really weave their way through in this book (while also educating you on Alberta craft beer!) This book will even represent Canada in an international book competition!

I’m excited to do a few more brewery crawls to knock off all the breweries on the Edmonton Tourism Brewery Pass!

Or you can tackle these one by one over time—though if you’re in it for the collecting “game” aspect to win a free T-Shirt, you’ll want to visit the breweries sooner than later! You’ll likely want to visit sooner than later anyway, so you can enjoy the patios while the weather is still good.

Visiting the breweries to check them off on your free Brewery Pass is an activity you can do with just your family or cohort, or even by yourself.

Be physically distant and try to grab a patio seat at any of the breweries if you’re not comfortable sitting inside. Remember to have a designated driver (or if enjoying solo, ensure you’ve got a safe ride home!)
