Cumberland Valley Beer Trail FAQ

How do I participate?

To participate in the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail, sign up for the digital passport. As you visit participating locations, check in using the four-digit code at each location. As you earn prizes, you will receive a form in your digital passport to let us know where to mail your prizes, and what size shirt you would like.

If you are having issues with the digital passport, please contact Bandwango for support at:

How do I check-in and is a purchase necessary?

Each participating location will have a four-digit code posted somewhere at the location. If you don't see it, feel free to ask staff for the code. Open your Beer Trail Passport, click on "Redeem" under the location you are at, and follow the prompts to enter the four-digit code. No purchase is necessary to check in.

How do I know I have the most current passport?

The first version of the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail Passport was released in April 2017. The newest version began in late April 2022. If you signed up for the Beer Trail prior to April 2022, you will need to sign up for the new digital passport.

  • Be a stand-alone site with visitor-friendly hours. Locations within farmers markets are not eligible at this time.

Why aren’t all of the participating locations open?

As we've produced new passports, we've sometimes included locations that are in the process of opening. These locations look forward to welcoming you soon! Please check their website or Facebook page for the latest updates.
