Since April 2017, five versions of the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail Passport have been printed to restock our inventory and make updates to the participating locations and prizes. The newest version of the passport is shown on this page. If you have an older passport, simply turn it in with your new passport by March 2, 2020, and we'll combine the stickers for your prizes.
