America's Greenest Cities — Insurify, 2020
The Holland Area Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce the launch of a “Handcrafted Passport” featuring breweries, wineries, distilleries and cideries in the greater Holland area. With the ‘handcrafted’ and ‘keeping-it-local’ scene becoming increasingly popular, the time to launch our Handcrafted Beverage Passport is NOW!
The objective is to have a beverage, hear the individual establishment’s story, and learn about their handcrafted product. Having a ‘passport’ (that includes a place to jot down tasting notes), provides a handy reference for visitors and locals alike. And, if you take photos along the way (which is always fun) remember to use #mihandcraftedpassport!
When one takes the Passport to a participating establishment, it will be stamped with each artisan’s specially designed stamp; those who have collected 10 stamps can return their Passport to the Visitors Bureau for verification. Once verified, the Passport holder will receive a custom-stamped “Handcrafted in Holland” bar blade, compliments of the Holland Area Visitors Bureau. Passports can also be mailed to the Visitors Bureau for verification and will be returned along with the bar blade.
The passport is free and available to anyone (21 and over) who enjoys artisan beverages. Passports can be picked up at the Holland Area Visitors Bureau (78 East 8th Street) or can be mailed within the continental U.S.
Participating establishments include:
Big Lake Brewing
New Holland Brewing Company
Our Brewing Company
Tulip City Brewstillery
Crane’s Pie Pantry, Restaurant & Winery
Fenn Valley Winery
Michigan Wine Co.
White Flame Brewing
(The Passport includes a disclaimer reminding participants to drink responsibly and take advantage of alternative transportation options.)
