Schenectady has some great breweries to try and now, Discover Schenectady is making it even easier to try them all.
Discover Schenectady has decided to relaunch their popular Schenectady Ale Trail Passport but with some added options. According to Schenectady Metroplex, the original Passport program launched in 2018 with Schenectady County breweries Back Barn Brewing Co., Druthers Brewing Co., Frog Alley Brewing Co., Great Flats Brewing, Mad Jack Brewing Co., and Wolf Hollow Brewing Co. The Passport sells for $40 and includes a beer flight or pint of beer at all six breweries.
Now, they’re offering a $20 pass to include a beer flight or pint of beer at three of the member breweries. This pass will mostly be aimed at people spending a shorter stay in Schenectady. Both passes can be purchased at www.discoverschenectady.com. The Passport is downloaded to the user’s mobile device and presented at the participating breweries of their choice.
Todd Garofano, Executive Director for Discover Schenectady said, “The $40 Passport does really well with locals who can spread their brewery visits over a longer period of time. By launching the $20 3-Brewery Pass, our hope is to attract visitors coming to town for weddings, conferences or just for a weekend.” He continued, “As always, we encourage guests to visit safely & responsibly, have a designated driver or utilize one of the several shuttle operators that frequent our breweries and have a great experience.”
