419 Ale Trail Check-In Challenge Created to Drive Business to Regional Breweries

The 419 Ale Trail is proud to announce its latest promotion aimed at encouraging brewery visitation and supporting 419 Ale Trail breweries in different destinations throughout the region.

There will be six monthly check-in challenges in total beginning in October with breweries in Findlay and Carey, including False Chord Brewing, Findlay Brewing Company, Findlay Crafted Nano and Carey Brewing Station. 419 Ale Trail participants will receive 50 bonus points for checking in to each participating brewery.

“With Toledo being the hub of the 419 Ale Trail and having the biggest population, it is important to shine a spotlight on all the great breweries in our neighboring cities and towns too. We want craft beer lovers to explore new places and discover new breweries in Northwest Ohio, while giving them a little incentive to complete the Trail,” said Cathy Miller, administrator of the 419 Ale Trail.

“We will be featuring a beer of the month from participating breweries on the 419 Ale Trail social media pages to add to the fun.” Monthly Regional Check-in Challenges include:

• October 2023 | Findlay/Carey Challenge: Findlay Brewing Co., Findlay Crafted Nano, False Chord Brewing Co., Carey Brewing Station
