5 Reasons to get the Barrel District Passport

5 Reasons to get the Barrel District Passport

Unique craft beverages, prizes, and fun-- what more could you ask more?

Six breweries, two distilleries, and a meadery make up the Barrel District: one of Northern California's hidden gems. The Barrel District Passport is a terrific way to spend time with friends and family while also trying new craft beverages. This is a mobile passport instead of an app so that you can easily access it without taking up too much storage on your phone!  

1.  It’s free! 

Yes, you read that right! All you must do is enter your email to be eligible to win sweepstake prizes each month, at no cost. Once you check into all five (5) locations, you earn a small prize. We’ll talk more about this later!  

2.  Deals are available at specific locations 

Once you get your Barrel District Passport, you will see that some locations, such as J.J. Pfister Distilling, and Strad Meadery, offer one-time deals! For instance, if you check-in at Strad Meadery, you are not only one step closer to claiming a prize, but you’re also eligible for a free 1oz. Flight.  


3.  There’s a new prize every month 

As mentioned on the Barrel District Passport page, Passholders who visit all the locations within a calendar month are entered to win prizes. Those who visit five (5) locations, you are eligible to collect a small prize (only once!). Passholders that visit nine (9) locations are eligible to be entered to win a sweepstake prize. Winners are contacted within the first week of the next month. You can redeem your prize in two ways: 

  1. Collect your prize in the Visit Rancho Cordova offices (for small prize only) 
  2. Choose your prize to be mailed to you 

You have 30 days to redeem your prize of the month! If you are unable to do so, no worries, there’s always next time. 

4.  The Barrel District is an easy stop on your next adventure 

After visiting our friends in nearby Folsom or enjoying the American River Parkway, head to the popular Fort Rock Brewing or Claimstake Brewing Company. Don’t drink and drive! Taking a Lyft from one of our hotels or having a designated driver is the best option. Our Barrel District Partners are close to our hotels! If you are a first-time Lyft user, use code “RCTT” for $5 off. 


5.  It’s a great way to spend time with friends and family 

Completing the Barrel District Passport is a fantastic way to create and capture memories with your family and friends. For example, Claimstake Brewing Co. has live music to enjoy with their beer.  

Pro-Tip: Movement Brewing Co. Is right next to The Smart Axe! Once you’re done playing cornhole at Movement, you can walk next door and (safely) throw axes.
