The Ballard Alliance has created a way to showcase the walkability and quality of Ballard's Brewery District in the new Ballard Brewery Passport program starting on Saturday, January 12, 2019. With eleven breweries located within a one-mile radius, the Ballard Brewery Passport offers a guide to the myriad of craft beer options for both locals and visitors to Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood.
The Ballard Brewery Passport is an informative map and guide that highlights important details about each participating brewery. Passport users are encouraged to collect unique stamps from each brewery and redeem completed passports for a prize. No purchase is required, but the program offers participants an opportunity to sample brews from 11 distinctly unique breweries in the heart of the East Ballard neighborhood.
With its two-tier prize system, participants can collect six stamps and redeem for a keychain prize at any brewery or collect all 11 stamps and redeem their passport for a commemorative drinkware grand prize at Hattie’s Hat restaurant. Additionally, participants can submit photos on social media for more prizes using the hashtag #ballardbrewed. Passports are available at each participating brewery and at Hattie’s Hat restaurant.
“The Ballard neighborhood has an amazing concentration of talented brewers with a long history of producing some of the finest craft brews in the region and around the world. We wanted to create a fun way to showcase the Ballard Brewery District and encourage visitors and locals alike to experience all of Ballard’s fabulous craft brewery options as well as visit the Ballard Shopping and Dining District,” said Mike Stewart, Ballard Alliance Executive Director.
Two of the oldest Seattle breweries that helped put craft beer in Seattle on the map, Hale’s Ales and Maritime Pacific Brewing, are featured on the Passport as well as these local favorites: Bad Jimmy’s Brewing Co., Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lucky Envelope Brewing, NW Peaks Brewery, Obec Brewing, Peddler Brewing Company, Populuxe Brewing, Reuben’s Brews, and Stoup Brewing.
This program is made possible through support from the City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development, Only in Seattle project. To learn more about the Ballard Brewery Passport go to www.visitballard.com/ballardbrewed.
