Over the last several years, Enumclaw has become a destination spot for fans of locally-made brews and wines.

Now, the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Cole Street Brewery, Headworks Brewery, Fill’s Growlers, Leony’s Cellars, Plateau Wine and Beer, Bordeaux Wine Bar, and Pursuit Distillery has started a new campaign to bring more folks to the Plateau for the chance to experience some small-town libations.

The “Imbibe Tour”, as it has been dubbed, launched just last week, said Chamber Director of Events Kerry Solmonsen, though not all credit goes to the Chamber — the tour was the brainchild of Cole Street Brewery’s Sean McDonald.

“The Imbibe Tour is a passport-based experience, so you can embark on an adult adventure of craft consumption on the Enumclaw Imbibe Trail,” Solmonsen said in a recent interview.

The passports can be bought for $25 at the Chamber office, Cole Street, Bordeaux, or (for a limited time) Headworks, and allows tour participants access to special offerings or discounts at the seven participating businesses.

“When you complete your visit to each location, you will get a stamp on your passport,” Solmonsen continued. “When you’ve completed all seven locations, you will return your passport to any of the four locations [where the passport is sold] and you will receive this absolutely lovely insulated tumbler with the Enumclaw Imbibe Tour logo and each of the participating locations engraved on the tumbler.”

The logo was created, and the tumblers engraved, by Andy Newell at Mancraft Graphics, also a local business off 392nd Street.

“This is going to be an ongoing thing. Unlike a beer walk, this is something participants can do at their own pace,” Solmonsen continued. “It’s go-at-your-own-pace.”

The Chamber also plans to switch out the passport completion prizes quarterly to keep the experience fresh. Participating businesses also plan to change up their offerings.

For more information, contact the Chamber at 360-825-7666.
