The Denver Passport is returning this year, which comes in the form of a pocket-size black book that provides two-for-one drink offers at various establishments across the city. As of yesterday it's available through presale for $10, but come June 1 the price will go up to $20.
The program, which was introduced last summer and runs from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, aims to connect people with new, local and independent bars and restaurants.
"Last year Denverites received more than 20,000 stamps over the course of the program," says PJ Hoberman, co-founder of the Passport Program. "People got out, explored new bars and celebrated the season with tasty cocktails and beer."
Among the more than 50 participating venues are new spots like Atticus, Session Kitchen and the Curtis Club, as well as older staples such as Zengo, Lola and Jonesy's. Also new this year is the expansion of the program into Boulder and Fort Collins. A Front Range Passport Pack (which includes both cities and Denver) is available during the presale for $30, and will go up to $40 on June 1.
Denver Passport holders also have the option to register for passport perks, including pop-up parties, tasting events, pub crawls and more. The first event will be at the Denver Flea in City Park on May 24, and includes a free passport beer with an RSVP.
