In a stroke of genius, four Southern Minnesota businesses have teamed up to bring you a beverage passport just in time for the holidays. The passport offers up coffee, beer, and wine which you could turn into individual gifts for other people, or you could gift the passport to someone as well. The passports are $60 and have a value of over $80 in merchandise. Let's take a closer look at who is on the passport and what they are offering with it.

  • 1 lb of coffee from Straight River Coffee
  • 2 crowlers from Mineral Springs Brewery
  • 2 crowlers from Foremost Brewing Cooperative
  • 1 bottle of wine (select bottles) from Vintage Escapes Winery & Vineyard

You can purchase a passport at any one of the four businesses listed or online here. 

I'll admit I haven't been to Foremost yet, so I'm not sure what they have available, but I've had some beer from MSB before and enjoyed it. When I think about it I've only really ever tried MSB, so this is a good excuse to support local businesses and pick up some gifts all at the same time.

I bought something similar to this a few years ago for a bunch of breweries in the Twin Cities area, and it got us out and trying all kinds of beverages and finding some really cool spots to enjoy a pint and we even made some friends in the process.
