A way to share passion.


We are just a couple guys and gals who have a passion for connecting craft beer drinkers and their favorite (or soon to be favorite) breweries. At its founding, the team of University of Minnesota students simply wanted to spread their passion for craft beer through a passport-like book. Now approaching its third year, we have an even larger goal, to host some of the largest brewery crawls in the Twin Cities as well as establish new initiative to give back to the community.
