About the Passport Program 

Back by popular demand, the Passport Program will return this summer. Tons of your most beloved bars, restaurants, breweries, wineries, and distilleries will combine forces to bring an amazing summer to thousands of engaged city-dwellers.

The concept is simple—a pocket-sized little black book filled with 2-for-1 drink specials all across town, valid from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Passport holders hang on to this book all summer long trying all deals. And, just like your government-issued Passport, bartenders stamp the pages to show where guests ventured.

The Passport Program has been praised by patrons and venues alike. The Program started in Denver in 2013 and expanded to Boulder, Fort Collins, and Brooklyn last summer. Over 10,000 Passports were sold in 2014. We were responsible for over a quarter million drinks last summer.
