Passport to heaven
There’s a new way for North East beer lovers to explore the eclectic craft beer scene. Craft Beer Passports have gone on sale online, providing enthusiasts with a well-priced way to explore and support independent bars and producers.
Craft Beer Passport started in Toronto, Canada, in 2014 and developed into a mobile app that can be used to seek out craft beer locations across Ontario. For the UK market though, they are going back to their roots with folding pocket-sized passports. A passport holder can choose one £2 craft beer from a list of three at 20 participating locations across the North East until December 3. Craft Beer Passports (£20) are available at www.craftbeerpassport.co.uk and at select locations: Anarchy Brew Co and Heaton Tap in Newcastle, The Blind Pig and Yard House in Tynemouth, plus The Central and Station East in Gateshead. They are also participating venues along with Newcastle’s Errant Brewery, Beer Street, Beeronomy, Dat Bar, Arch 2 Brewpub & Kitchen, The Old Coal Yard, the Cumberland Arms and Brinkburn St Brewery, plus Front Street Tap House and Platform 2 in Tynemouth, the Brewery Tap in Dunston and Block & Bottle – both Gateshead – and Flash House Brewing Co and Enigma Tap (North Shields).
