Introducing Pup Passport; a Dog Friendly Brewery Passport

The Portland Pup Passport is a new digital guide to deals and savings at canine friendly breweries, taprooms and cideries around Portland and the Oregon coast. This Saturday, July seventeenth they celebrate their launch and first official event at Uptown Beer Co.’s 1st Annual Dog Days of Puptown event.

Inspired by the Portland Distillery Passport and their love of canine, native couple Stephen Guarino and Cambrie Burn came up with the concept to start the Pup Passport after adopting a pet named Riley a few months back. They needed to bring their new pup out to eat and drink with them, but didn’t know where to start. Oregon pubs have been famously dog friendly, however it’s hard to know when and the place you’ll be able to carry a dog especially with food service, crowds and kids thrown into the mix. The Pup Passport will not only guide you to good places to take your canine, but give you incentives to visit them while benefiting animal related causes.

“Since Portland has a huge craft brewery scene, breweries had been the intuitive focus,” says co-founder Steve Guarino. “We also thought it would be cool for individuals with a passport to get some kind of provide or discount when they arrive. Additionally we needed to make a digital passport somewhat than a physical one to make it simple for folks to make use of and in order that they could navigate to the breweries on their phones. Being digital additionally means we can add breweries and partners later on.”

The Pup Passport kicked off with an instagram account on June 1st and the campaign has started snowballing from there. In a brief interval over 25 breweries have signed up, and even more partnerships have arisen with local pet friendly businesses and non-profits like Oregon Humane Society, Subsequent Adventure, and The Bidwell Marriott. Pup Passport will even be sold as gift 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 fast access to a list of participating locations each providing their own deal. The offers only work for you, and might only be used once at each location. Also, every participant is offering different deals. For example: Migration Brewing is providing joyful hour pricing on food and drinks. Rogue is providing $four Dead Man Ale pints. Binary / Uptown Beer Co is giving away pint glasses with any $5 purchase. Other folks are giving away dog bandanas, some people are doing 1, 2, and $3 off first pint, others are doing $1 first pints, Discounts on to-go beer, reductions on on-line beer orders, etc. Most breweries average $5 worth of offers per location (some have more, some have less).

“Finally we would 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 is a ton of overlap, so I think we stumbled onto a really exciting area of interest with this idea.”
