More than 35,000 passports have been printed so far, with 2,000 given out in the first two weeks and 10,000 in the first eight months. After five years, the Ale Trail has garnered national media attention and a boom in culinary tourism in the area.
There is no cost to participate, and those interested can pick up a Fayetteville Ale Trail passport at the Visitors Center on the Downtown Square, located at 21 S. Block Ave. Passports are also available at any of the participating breweries, and stamps can be collected at each location. Completed passports can be mailed or brought to the Visitors Bureau for a free prize.
