Two Trails Diverged. And I – I Took The One With Great Beer.

The TC Ale Trail™ is a fun and rewarding way to experience Traverse City’s booming craft beer scene. It’s your little passport to the big world of beer in northern Michigan. Pick up your free TC Ale Trail™ passport at any brewery, most restaurants, hotels or at the Traverse City Visitor Center, and let the adventure begin!

How it Works

As you visit each of the featured breweries, collect a unique stamp with any purchase. Keep your passport with you as you make your brew trek, and acquire stamps from each stop along the trail. Once your TC Ale Trail™ passport is completely stamped from each of the 9 participating breweries, return your passport to The Filling Station and receive a FREE, commemorative silicone Silipint pint glass!

Extra Credit

Big Toe Brewery is an Extra Credit stop. If you return a completed passport PLUS the Extra Credit, receive a FREE bonus prize!

Why Traverse City

There’s something brewing here, and it’s no longer a secret! Traverse City was recently named to Travel Channel‘s list of Top 7 Beer Destinations AND Draft Magazine, the leading publication in the brew world, named TC one of three Emerging Beer Towns to keep tabs on (we think they meant ‘taps on’) in 2012. Come see what all the commotion is about and taste for yourself along the TC Ale Trail™!
