Pup Passport FAQ
All you could possibly want to know about Pup Passport, the dog friendly brewery passport! Got a question that's not on our FAQ? Head over to the Contact Us page and we'll happily answer your question asap!
Q: Is this a physical passport?
A: Nope! Only digital. Digital is way cooler, and let's you navigate to breweries from your phone on Google Maps. Buy the passport on our website, sign in, and that's it! some vendors will be selling Pup Passport gift cards, which are redeemable on our website.
Q: I don't get it... so its a passport, but for dogs?
A: Almost. It's like getting your passport stamped at an airport back in the day, except you get your Pup Passport "stamped" at breweries that allow dogs. All the breweries on the passport have agreed to give you a discount just for showing your passport.
Q: Do I need a dog to participate and get the discounts?
A: Nope! Anyone can buy a Pup Passport, whether they have a dog or not. You are not required to bring your dog to get the discounts at each brewery.
Q: How does it work?
A: Easy. Buy the passport on our website, and you'll automatically see a list of participating breweries that want to give you a discount. Show up to any brewery on the list, show them your passport, tap Redeem Offer, and that's it! You can redeem one offer per location per passport.
Q: How long are passports valid?
A: Passports are valid for 1 year after the date of purchase. You can buy another passport if your first one expires, and you'll be able to redeem all the same offers and start fresh.
Q: Does everybody in my party get the discount?
A: Nope, just you. If your party members want to be cool like you and get a discount, they will have to buy a passport for themselves.
Q: Are the discounts one and done for each brewery?
A: Yes, one and done for each location. We will revisit this at a later date, because we think it's valuable for you and for breweries to have an ongoing discount.
Q: Do all breweries have the same discount?
A: Nope! For example, Migration is offering happy hour pricing on food and drinks. Rogue is offering $4 Dead Guy 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, discounts on online beer orders, etc. Most breweries average $5 worth of deals per location (some have more, some have less).
Q: What about multi-location breweries? Can I redeem the offer there too?
A: Yup! Each brewery and each location has their own listing. For example Pelican has a Cannon Beach, Tillamook, and Pacific City location. Each location is treated separate, meaning you can get the offer at each of the brewery's locations.
Q: How can I tell what each brewery is offering?
A: After you buy the passport, the homepage of this website will change to display the passport. You can scroll through it, and browse information and offers from each brewery, and from each Pet friendly Partner.
Q: Tell me more about the breweries?
A: Sure thing. These breweries always have dog bowls for water, and typically have outdoor patios to accommodate you and your pup. Most locations have food, which means you'll be seated outdoors if you bring a dog. Some locations do not serve food and therefore allow dogs indoors, and you can bring your own food. We have provided the brewery website on the passport so you can take a look at their brews and menu. At the time of launch, with our flagship "PDX Pup Passport," we have 22+ breweries on board, spanning from Cannon Beach, to Vancouver, to Portland, and a couple other areas too. The idea is to explore new breweries, so we wanted to include a couple hidden gems, and other areas outside of Portland.
Q: I'm a dog friendly brewery in Oregon, or pet friendly business in Oregon. How do I get involved?
A: Pup Passport is very open to new breweries and partners joining. Visit our Contact Page and let us know that you want to get involved!
