Charlottesville Ale Trail Launches with Brewery Crawl & Passport Program

Ale Trail Passport

Close to 100 people visited all six breweries in the city of Charlottesville yesterday to celebrate the launch of the Charlottesville Ale Trail. The crawl started at Champion Brewery around 2pm, followed by Three Notch’d, South Street, Brasserie Saison, Random Row, finishing up at Hardywood around 8pm. Every participant received a passport and a stamp when they visited each brewery at yesterday’s event. For those who collected all six stamps, they can send in a selfie along with information to receive a free gift from the Ale Trail.

The passports are now available at all six breweries or you can download it here. All you have to do is purchase food or a beverage at each brewery to collect a stamp. You don’t have to visit each brewery in one trip.

A photo gallery from the event has been posted on our Facebook page.
