Remember last spring when I told you about how much I loved Passeport en fût? Well this time, the Montreal-based company is back with a better, bigger, smarter version of the concept! The ideal gift for yourself, a beer connoisseur or a fellow supporter of local treasures is now at the tip of your fingers – literally.
If you are not familiar with what Passeport en fût is about, let me explain in one sentence: it consists of 12 “coupons” that you can exchange for pints of craft beer in selected breweries for a total amount of 40$.
For the new edition of the Passeport, Catherine Roux and Geneviève Desrochers, cofounders of the company, completely reimagined their concept and decided to take a digital turn. The Passeport is no longer a physical booklet, but rather an app that anyone can download. That way, you’re always carrying it on you and there’s no waste!
But the even bigger news is that it will no longer be enjoyed solely by Montrealers: the new Passeport can now be used and enjoyed all over the province of Quebec! The last edition of the Passeport included 12 microbreweries, all located in Montreal, and it now includes over 70 microbreweries in regions such as Mauricie, Gaspésie, Bas-Saint-Laurent, etc.
Why I love it
I am far from being an expert when it comes to beers but I am curious and am always willing to taste something new. The Passseport is perfect for me, as it allows me to discover places I’ve never tried and it’s always a good excuse to gather a few friends and go out.
The team behind the concept is extremely passionate, and it shows. The app is very user-friendly, with a minimalistic yet colourful theme, gorgeous drawings that remind us of how fun it is to have a beer among friends, and most importantly: it is SUPER simple and exciting to use!
How it works
Download the app, select some or all 12 breweries that you wish to visit among the various choices from all over the province of Quebec, and that’s it! You are ready to discover and taste local beers! Make sure you show your app to your waiter/waitress as you order.
The best part? It DOES NOT expire!! So go ahead and plan a trip to discover the beautiful parts of Quebec where you’ve always wanted to go. A delicious craft beer is waiting for you! Just let the Passeport be your guide.
