It’s no secret that craft beer in Oregon is serious business. There’s a new way to celebrate this liquid gold in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory. Visitors may download the brand new Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail mobile passport at omht.us/taptrail. The free year-long passport showcases some of the newest breweries in Mt. Hood Territory, as well as some perennial favorites, with discounts at participating businesses.
In addition to discounts and access to new craft drinks, there’s one more passport perk. If you redeem a discount at 10 of the 13 participating businesses within a year, you earn a Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail stainless steel pint glass.
Be sure to read the rules of the Tap Trail before you go and remember to ask your server to enter the location’s unique redemption code in your mobile passport to ensure your discount has been applied to your purchase. Once you have redeemed discounts at 10 locations within a year of your first redemption, stop by the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Oregon City during their operating hours to receive your free pint glass.
