A city defines itself by its industries, art, architecture, and Food & Drink. At the center of local culture are the creative artisans and craftsmen that combine their skills with local ingredients, local knowledge, and local art to create something wholly unique and special. To us, this is the definition of “craft.”

What goes into the products we consume? Where are they from? What makes something better than another? How and by whom is it made….?

Our focus is on the most unique, important, and essential purveyors (makers) of local craft. We curate an experience designed to encourage exploration, learning, and friendships, and a better appreciation of local culture.

The Craft Notes Club is a community of curious craft lovers that seek to learn more about local culture by exploring local tastes and flavors.

Love this app!

I’ve been using their passports for some time, but I love that this is mobile. The selection of venues is really top quality. Great App if you like going to breweries and distilleries and finding hidden gems. Excited to see what they add next. Please add more places in Saint Paul!

Love what they do, but the app crashes

I’ve had the craft notes passport for a while now and love the idea! It’s awesome to check out new breweries and explore the state. So when this app was announced I was thrilled!

Showing the nearby breweries works pretty well. I wish they would expand to show more local gems beyond the few in the app.

Unfortunately though, the app crashes every time I try to view my membership. Hopefully, this can be updated and fixed soon.

We are now 4 versions ahead of this one! Please update and retry!

Where’s the code?

I bought the passbook and don’t have a code in the back of my book the start the 30 day membership. Can I get some drinks, I mean help here?

Developer Response ,

The book and app are separate projects. You should be able to Sign In and sign up for a membership via the app if you don't have a code. The code was a promotion we did for the holidays (buy a book, unlock 45 days of the app) - otherwise if you want a card-code you can purchase one from our website (but easiest is to just go to "Manage Membership" tab in the app's 'more' area.
