The new craft beer adventure in NW Ohio includes 28 other breweries in the area.
Destination Toledo has partnered with technology company Bandwango to create a free, mobile-exclusive digitized passport that will allow visitors and locals alike to check in at participating craft beverage partner locations. The Trail will be gamified, meaning customers can earn prizes and redeem discounts with the goal of completing the Trail. Brochures will be available at all participating breweries that will include sign up instructions, a QR code, a map with brewery locations and a complete list of participating businesses.
“We are excited to launch the 419 Ale Trail to coincide with the summer travel season,” said Cathy Miller, 419 Ale Trail Ambassador for Destination Toledo. “With restrictions lifting, now is the perfect time to give people a new and exciting activity to get out and explore Toledo and northwest Ohio and spend money in our communities.”
Guests who sign up for the 419 Ale Trail will receive a sticker upon their initial stop, followed by halfway prizes, completion prizes and entries into grand prizes drawings. Participants have until June 17, 2022 – one full year – to complete the Trail. A number of breweries will provide special discounts to redeem along the Trail.
