The NYC Good Beer Passport – Survey Results

i_love_new_york_beer_heart_nycIt’s official, you like Beer. But not just any old Beer, you like Craft Beer and when possible, you want it made locally.  At least that’s what I can gather after the 4th year in a row of organizing a Beer passport that’s focused on the great Bars, Restaurants, Shops and Breweries around the Big Apple.

The 2014 NYC Good Beer Passport, with a lot of help from Beermenus, offered 48 Craft Beers from 48 businesses around NYC from July 1 to September 1 for only $35. If you made it to all 48 locations that’s a whopping $00.73 cents a beer. Not only is it a great value but you found out about all kinds of great places to drink great Craft Beer in all 5 boroughs. But wait, that’s not all, tell ’em what else they did!

By purchasing a NYC Craft Beer passport you helped local businesses at a time of year when business takes a dip due to summer vacations. You also helped to raise money and awareness for great local charities like Food Bank for New York City, as well as the Heritage Radio Network, home to Beer Sessions Radio. You beerrific efforts also spread the word of great local Craft Beer focused organizations like the Good Beer Seal, July Good Beer Month and the NYC Brewers Guild. In essence, by drinking local this summer, you helped local. (Scroll to the bottom to learn more about each.)

So with that, I asked everyone who purchased The NYC Good Beer Passport to take a few minutes of time and give their feedback. I was hoping a few of you would be up for helping us understand the effects and improve future versions. But not just a few of you responded, nearly 40% of people agreed to participate. Keep in mind that number is based of the purchase population and some of you bought multiple passports. Either way, that’s a huge sample size and I appreciate the time you took to fill it out.

So how about we take a look at what you had to say!

THANK YOU!
So from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of my awesome partner Beermenus, as well as all the great organizations, Bars, Restaurants, Brew Shops and Breweries, thank you, especially the 5 redemption locations who dedicated a lot of time and effort to making sure people got their Passports. Thank you for supporting local, appreciating local and being a local. I read every single tweet and Instagram post with the #GoodBeerPassport and tried to respond / like/ retweet as many as I could. A special thanks goes out to The Beervengers who started a blog just to track their progress on the passport. It’s a pretty fun read if you have the time. Lastly a big high-five to Marc from Branch Marketing Collective for not only designing the poster but also joining me on almost every place I visited on the passport.

About The Good Beer Seal
The Good Beer Seal endeavors to separate the wheat from the chaff by identifying bars that serve quality craft beer and demonstrate a commitment to the community in which they do business. A Good Beer Seal Bar is independently owned and operated and has a unique sense of place; making it more than just another watering hole. A Good Beer Seal Bar is destination-worthy. In addition to offering at least 80% craft domestic/ special imported beers, a Good Beer Seal Bar engages its staff and guests in educational offerings regarding the history and originality of the beers it serves. A bar that earns a Good Beer Seal will be active in its local and global community through responsible stewardship and charitable actions. If The Good Beer Seal is on the door, good business practices, good atmosphere, and good beer is inside.
