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 t-shirt you would like.

There are several different versions of the passport. Which one do I use? How do the prize changes work?
Since April 2017, six 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 a digital passport. If you have any printed passport, simply turn it in to claim your prizes. Please do not continue to use your old passport, as some locations are no longer participating. Prizes will be awarded based on the current prize structure, which is:
5 Stickers = Cumberland Valley Beer Trail Bottle Opener Keychain
15 Stickers = Cumberland Valley Beer Trail T-Shirt + Cumberland Valley Beer Trail Bottle Opener
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 are locations selected to be on the trail?
Currently, eligible locations must be:
- Located in Cumberland County; or within five miles of a Cumberland County location. We will accept up to four non-county locations per county surrounding Cumberland County on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Producing three or more craft, alcoholic beverages. This includes beer, wine, spirits, mead, and cider.
- Be a stand-alone site with visitor-friendly hours. Locations within farmers markets are not eligible at this time.
- The Beer Trail is a pay-to-play program with a nominal investment for Beer Trail locations.
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.
