Makers Trail PASSPORT

Collect stamps, earn rewards with the Makers Trail Passport

Download your 2023/2024 Makers Trail Flight Crew Passport starting this September! Then, taste your way through Berrien County visiting over 40 local wineries, breweries, cideries and distilleries between then and May 2024. The more you visit, the more Passport stamps you can collect, the more rewards you can earn. Traveling the Makers Trail is fun, relaxing and a great way to find favorite craft beverages. Until then, still visit the Makers. There's no reason not to!

Download the Makers Trail App to complete your passport

We've switched to a digital system to make stamp collecting easier for you. No more worrying about forgetting your passport and no more dropping it off at the Tourist Council to earn prizes. Now, you can simply download the app and map out your flight path. Once you visit a location, ask your server for their unique access code to earn your stamp on the app. Each time you complete a level, your information will automatically be saved. When you finish all the levels you'd like to, fill out a Google form and the Tourist Council will send you prizes. You can't receive prizes unless you fill out the Google form. It's that easy! Download it NOW to get started!
