2024 marks the seventh edition of the Tampa Bay Ale Trail. With 83 breweries to visit and earn stamps for collectible prizes, on top of return visit BOGO beers, makes this a steal at $30.
Pre-sale update: We received the books in hand on December 8th and had all pre-sales to that point in the mail on the 9th. From this point on all orders should be in the mail within 24 hours. Every year we have several breweries and retailers that choose to sell the books on site. We will announce their participation as they come on board.
About the book:
The Tampa Bay Ale Trail is a fun and great way to experience and support local craft breweries from Sarasota to Brooksville, and as Far East as Lakeland. To use the passport, visit a participating brewery and present the passport when you purchase a beer (pint, flight, and so on). For your purchase, you will receive a “First Visit” passport stamp. Return to this same brewery on a future date, purchase a beer, and you’ll receive a second complimentary beer at that time. The more unique breweries you visit earn you incentives directly from the Ale Trail collected at one of our Trailhead Meetups. Each year we design a unique dated collectable challenge coin with a puzzle that hikers will receive upon completion of the entire Trail. As always, and we can’t emphasize this enough, breweries that close will not count against your completion. It has been and will continue to be our policy to encourage visiting all open breweries and rewarding your support of our local brewing scene.
NEW THIS YEAR!
We were so excited by your response to the 8 region icons, and proud to say we were awarded a Craft Beer Marketing Award for the same, that we are changing the prize structure in 2024. Four prizes used to be rewarded based on number of stamps 20, 40, 60, and 80. Now EIGHT prizes will be redeemed one at time upon completion of each region. For example, close out Dunedin and receive the Dunedin pin. Close out Tampa, receive the Tampa pin. This is a fun new strategy for completing the trail with a whole new set of rewards. These will still be redeemed the same way at monthly meetups. We’ll have lanyards available separately for those ardent collectors that want to show off their efforts. And the style of the region pins will change annually offering a new look each year. Should any brewery close in a particular region missing that stamp will not count against closing out that region.
