The Hunterdon Beer Trail recently launched its fourth seasonal Brewery Passport promotion for spring and summer, giving craft beer enthusiasts the opportunity to explore seven Hunterdon County breweries.
The Brewery Passport promotion allows people to visit each of the participating breweries over a few weeks, get their passport stamped, and receive a commemorative cap as a reward. A QR code that links to each location’s daily beer menu is included in the vibrant passport along with information about each brewery and a place for each stamp.
The breweries taking part are Odd Bird Brewing in Stockton, Lone Eagle Brewing in Flemington, Conclave Brewing in Raritan Township, Highrail Brewing in High Bridge, Descendants Brewing Company at the Old Ship Inn in Milford, Sunken Silo Brew Works in Lebanon, and Readington Brewery and Hop Farm in Readington.
The Brewery Passport program is open from now until September 2023, or while supplies last.
Brewery Passports for the spring and summer 2023 can be picked up during regular business hours at participating breweries. Visit each of the seven breweries and get the passport stamped to finish it off and get a gift. By September 30, 2023, passports can be exchanged and caps can be gathered at any of the seven participating breweries.
The program also encourages customers to explore Hunterdon County’s countryside, vineyards, farms, and historic towns.
“This program is a great fit with our new tourism initiative – explorehunterdonnj.com,” said Marc Saluk, director of the Hunterdon County Department of Economic Development and Tourism.
“People really enjoy the passport program and discover our little brewery because of it,” said Jeff Donlon, owner of Sunken Silo Brew Works. “We’ve been meeting new customers from all over the state, and we’re excited to introduce them to our beers.”
The breweries will likely announce additional initiatives and events in the upcoming months, according to Bob King, co-owner of Lone Eagle Brewing in Flemington, who asked customers to keep an eye out for the specifics.
Hunterdon Beer Trail, a partnership between local brewers and the Hunterdon County Department of Economic Development and Tourism, launched in 2021 as an online guide to the seven craft breweries.
