Oregon pubs have been famously dog friendly, however it’s hard to know when and where you may convey a dog particularly with meals service, crowds and kids thrown into the mix. The Pup Passport will not only guide you to good places to take your canine, however provide you with incentives to visit them while benefiting animal associated causes.
"Since Portland has an enormous craft brewery scene, breweries have been the intuitive focus," says co-founder Steve Guarino.

Additionally we wished to make a digital passport rather than a physical one to make it easy for folks to make use of and so that they might navigate to the breweries on their phones. Being digital additionally means we will add breweries and partners later on."
The Pup Passport kicked off with an instagram account on June 1st and the campaign has began snowballing from there. In a brief period over 25 breweries have signed up, and even more partnerships have arisen with native pet pleasant companies and non-profits like Oregon Humane Society, Subsequent Adventure, and The Bidwell Marriott. Pup Passport will even be sold as present cards at The Bidwell Marriott they usually hope to sign up more spots.
How the passport works is you buy for $25 on their website after which get immediate access to a list of participating areas every providing their own deal. The deals only work for you, and might only be used once at each location. Also, each participant is providing different deals. For example: Migration Brewing is providing pleased hour pricing on meals and drinks. Rogue is providing $four Dead Guy Ale pints. Binary / Uptown Beer Co is giving away pint glasses with any $5 purchase. Different folks are giving away canine bandanas, some people are doing 1, 2, and $three off first pint, others are doing $1 first pints, Reductions on to-go beer, reductions on online beer orders, etc. Most breweries average $5 worth of offers per location (some have more, some have less).
"Eventually we'd like to create separate passports for Eugene, Bend, and so forth, and in addition create a master passport encompassing all of Oregon," adds Guagino. "I think this thought works so well because we're merging two very passionate teams of individuals: beer lovers, and canine lovers. There's a ton of overlap, so I think we stumbled onto a really exciting niche with this idea."
