Experience 13 craft breweries throughout Greater Fort Lauderdale


GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (September  7, 2022) Visit Lauderdale, the official destination marketing organization for Greater Fort Lauderdale in South Florida, is debuting the new mobile-exclusive Visit Lauderdale Ale Trail Passport in October 2022. The “Yachting Capital of the World” welcomes everyone under the sun to experience a curated collection of 13 craft breweries throughout the region this fall, just in time for National American Beer Day (Oct. 27) and beyond the observance. This is the first time the destination is showcasing its offerings with a mobile pass.


“Greater Fort Lauderdale is a beer aficionado’s dream vacation. After you’ve experienced our beautiful beaches, explore beyond and step into our breweries packed with local flavors, unique ambiances, and gracious hospitality,” says Stacy Ritter, CEO and President Visit Lauderdale. “With our Visit Lauderdale Ale Trail Passport, we’ve made it easy to indulge and savor some refreshing brews during your escape to our tropical paradise.”


Visit Lauderdale has partnered with the technology company Bandwango to launch the passport, a free mobile-exclusive digital pass that all locals and visitors can sign up for. With many breweries tucked away, this passport makes it easy to discover Greater Fort Lauderdale’s thriving brewery scene and to go where the locals go or to create your own tour.


Once launched, visitors and locals will be able to visit a dedicated mobile passport landing page where they can sign up for the Visit Lauderdale Ale Trail Passport by providing their name, email address and mobile phone number. A link is then sent via text to their mobile phone, which opens the passport and directs the user to add the button icon to their home screen, where they can access it at any time. There is never anything to download and no bulky apps take up space on a user’s phone.


As locals and visitors work their way through the Visit Lauderdale Ale Trail, they will be automatically checked in and collect points to redeem limited-edition Visit Lauderdale swag, including hats and beer bottle opener keychains. They will also enjoy exclusive deals and discounts at Ale Trail stops.


To sign up to receive your link to the Visit Lauderdale Ale Trail Passport once it’s live, go to visitlauderdale.com/ale-trail. For more details on all the breweries in the Greater Fort Lauderdale region, visit visitlauderdale.com/nightlife/breweries/.
