Raleigh Beer Trail FAQ and Rules

We welcome you to the Raleigh Beer Trail! The Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau (GRCVB) has worked with Raleigh, N.C., area breweries to bring you this rewards program.

We'd love your feedback on the trail; we ran a beta test in 2016, but are always up for making the program better in 2017! Feel free to send comments and suggestions for the trail, and also to report any problems getting stamps to Cheers!

Importantly, remember to sign your Passport before you take a photo and email it for submission. Please remember to include your mailing address in the email and your T-shirt size, if you are submitting a Passport with 15 stamps. Also, please only send one photo per email address.

FAQ and rules

If I completed the Raleigh Beer Trail during 2016 and received the 2015/2016 T-shirt and beer hugger, can I complete it again in 2017 to receive the 2017 edition prizes?
Yes! (And we encourage you to try some breweries you didn't during your first completion of the trail in 2016!)

Is it free to download the Raleigh Beer Trail Passport and get stamps?

Yes! At this time it's free to download the Passport and get stamps. No purchase necessary to get stamps at the breweries.

Can I pick up a Raleigh Beer Trail Passport at a brewery?

At this time, the Passport is only available for download online (click here) or at our Visitor Information Center:

Can I submit more than one Passport per year?

We are only currently accepting and fulfilling one of each prize, per individual, per passport each year.

How long before I receive my rewards?

Please allow 4-8 weeks for us to deliver your prize, once we receive your signed and emailed Passport photo and mailing address.

We will do our best to provide the T-shirt in the size marked on your Passport. However, we can't promise that we can provide your requested size.
