4 Craft Beer-related Christmas Gifts to treat YOURSELF to This Holiday Season

We all know it’s better to give than to receive.

But sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself every now and then, too. The holidays can be a tough time on the wallet or checking account, we know. So we’ve worked with some of our favorite craft beer-related brands and products to offer you Ale Adventure-only discounts and promos!

Take a look at the list below and treat yourself this Christmas season!

1. Hop Passport

Hop Passport has grown in leaps and bounds over the past couple years and in 2020 will be available in a whopping 28 states, twice as many as 2019!

Passports offer either a Buy One Get One free (BOGO) drink or 50% off your first two beers, depending on the state. Passports are available either in book form or digital, and some are good for multiple states (ie. Arizona/New Mexico).

Hop Passport also supports its own community of passport holders. Facebook groups for different states exist where users can engage online or plan meet-ups in person. Hop Passport also sponsors an annual Hop Passport Amazing Brewery Race; the first person to complete his or her passport receives a cash prize and special t-shirt! (full details here)

Hop Passport is currently running a $5 off sale through December 31, 2019, but when you use promo code ALEADVENTURESMN you can get an additional $1 off your purchase. Should you choose to purchase your Hop Passport after December 31, 2019 that promo code will get you $5 off your purchase instead.

2. Community Alliance CraftHappy Passport App

The Community Alliance CraftHappy Passport has also grown and improved over time. Formerly a business card-sized punch-card offering BOGO’s at various MN and WI breweries, it will be available in 2020 as a user-friendly app offering BOGO and other discounts at breweries, wineries and distilleries in MN, WI, IA and CO.

Guaranteed offers include a BOGO drink at each participating business, though additional offers at participating partners include Buy One Growler Fill, get a free beer and 10% Off Merchandise for a total of over $900 in savings!

A unique perk with the CraftHappy Passport app and incentive to purchase is Community Alliance’s strong support of local non-profit organizations. Ten dollars of your CraftHappy membership fee (upped to $15 through December 31, 2019) goes to support a non-profit of your choice at checkout.

Look for CraftHappy in the App Store or Google Play. The app is free to download; you only pay for the annual membership. Get 10% off your membership fee when you use promo code ALEADVENTURE. Additional holiday deals include — buy 4 CraftHappy Passport memberships and get a 5th free; discount will automatically be applied in payment screen. Check out all participating partners here.

3. Shirts On Tap

Shirts on Tap is a box club for the true beer fan, partnering with different breweries in different cities and regions to create unique, exclusive shirts and member perks.

Each month, choose your city (San Diego, CA; Denver, CO; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; New England; Dallas, TX or Chicago, IL) or the “Surprise Me” option and your shirt. Shirts are customizable, from size to style and logo placement. Each box comes with a t-shirt, sticker, member perks at the associated brewery and a bio about that brewery. For an additional cost, boxes can also be upgraded for a hoodie, baseball tee, long sleeve shirt, hat or other option or to include coupons and stickers from all of a month’s breweries.

Shirts on Tap subscriptions are month-to-month so you can try it out for just one month or dive right in with a 12-month subscription! Use promo code ALEADVENTURES for half off your first box!

4. Experience the Twin Cities

If you live in Minnesota, experience the Twin Cities in a new way!

Experience the Twin Cities offers unique sightseeing tours of St. Paul and Minneapolis (and occasionally beyond) catered to your interests. Taste the Twin Cities on a food tour, drink your way through on a brewery or distillery tour or visit some of the Twin City’s better- or lesser-known landmarks and attractions on a sightseeing tour.

We recently took a festive Brews ‘n Bulbs Holiday tour around St. Paul that included drinks at St. Paul Brewing, Bad Weather Brewing and Stacked Deck Brewing. Between each stop, we got to see some of the best holiday lights and displays around the city. We had a great time with old and new friends alike!

For your own unique Twin Cities experience, use promo code AleAdventures15 for 15% of your booking of any tour!

There you go — a little something from us and our friends to you this holiday season!
