3 Reasons You Need To Snag A Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail Passport

Why buy a Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail passport? We'll give you three reasons.

Credit: JetsettingFools.com

Reason 1: Discounts Around Town

You read that right: the passport gets you discounts on beer—even food at some locations! You’ll get the same great beer at a lower price—up to $25 in savings.

Reason 2: Proof That You Visited All Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Area Breweries

The passport acts like a checklist. After you visit one brewery and redeem your discount, you get a stamp inside your passport. So collect your discount, your stamp, and your great beer.

After your collection is complete, show off your Flagstaff souvenir on a mantelpiece or in a scrapbook—or to your pals at one of your favorite Flagstaff breweries.

Reason 3: Try A New Beer

Breweries in Flagstaff are always brewing something new or seasonal. Why not try it at a discounted price? Many seasonal beers are only available for a limited time, so you’ll have to get out of the house to try it before the tap runs dry. And wouldn’t it be nice to be the expert on all things beer—in Flagstaff?

This month we have another reason. In anticipation for Arizona Beer Week, we’re offering the Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail passport at a discounted price: $3! These passports will be accepted at all participating breweries during Arizona Beer Week, so get your even bigger discount while you can.

The Flagstaff Ale Trail has added new stops in Sedona and Williams and now also features additional discounts for participants in the Grand Canyon gateway towns of Flagstaff and Williams plus at an added craft brewery in Sedona’s Red Rock Country. The new Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail draws on the success of nearly 2,000 fans of hand-crafted beer that have enjoyed the Flagstaff Ale Trail since December 2011.

The Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail is a self-guided beer tasting adventure in Flagstaff, Williams and Sedona – Arizona’s Grand Canyon country. Participants discover locally brewed craft beer and enjoy generous discounts on great beer and delicious food here in the Craft Beer Hub of the Southwest.

“The Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail passport offers folks discounts worth $20-$25,” said Geoff Barnard, Ale Trail founder.  “It’s a great value and a great experience and a way to enhance your experience in Grand Canyon and Red Rock Country.  This is really the best that northern Arizona has to offer.”

The Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail welcomes Grand Canyon Brewing Company at Cruiser’s Café 66 on Route 66 in Williams (offering discounted pints and food), and Oak Creek Brewing Company in Sedona, (offering Ale Trail patrons discounted pints at its brewery location). The expanded Ale Trail now offers Flagstaff-area discounts at Lumberyard Brewing Company, Beaver Street Brewery, Flagstaff Brewing Company, Mother Road Brewing Company, Wanderlust Brewing Company, Hops on Birch, Charly’s at the historic Weatherford Hotel and on Cosmic Beer at McGaughs’s Smoke & Bottle.

The Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail is a marvelous and fun tour, a craft beer sampling experience featuring the Grand Canyon country’s best craft breweries.  The Ale Trail now features beer and food discounts at 10 local breweries and pubs. Participants experience the Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail on their own, anytime, when they wish, for as long as they want, all in the beautiful Grand Canyon gateway towns of Flagstaff and Williams – and in Sedona’s spectacular Red Rock Country.

“The Ale Trail is popular for groups and events, too,” said Barnard. “We’ve had birthdays, retirements and fundraising events. An upcoming conference this June will tour the Ale Trail breweries in downtown Flagstaff with a local historian. They’re calling it ‘History on Tap.’”

There are two easy ways participants start the Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail 1) by purchasing a passport and souvenir beer pint at www.flagstaffaletrail.com or 2) buying it in person to begin at any one of these trailheads:

  • Wanderlust Brewery, Flagstaff
  • McGaugh’s Smoke & Bottle, Flagstaff

The Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail is open any time the breweries are open.  The Ale Trail encourages participants to stay awhile in Arizona’s beautiful high county and to enjoy the Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail at their leisure over a few days.

“We donate all profits to charity,” said Barnard  “We are turning good beer into good works.  The Flagstaff-Grand Canyon Ale Trail has supported over a dozen nonprofits already, including The Literacy Center, Sun Sounds of Arizona, Habitat for Humanity, Master Chorale of Flagstaff, Second Chance Center for Animals, Girls on the Run and the Flagstaff Symphony.  It’s a great way to help our community.”
