CLEVELAND — The coronavirus pandemic is forcing businesses across the country and here in Northeast Ohio to reevaluate their formats and processes.

On Tuesday, Destination Cleveland announced that its popular Cleveland Brewery Passport would go digital for 2019-20 as coronavirus concerns continue to impact residents. 

The passport program helps residents and visitors to the Northeast Ohio area tour of Cleveland’s emerging beer scene. Participants have the opportunity to collect stamps from 34 different breweries—all conveniently located within 25 miles of Downtown Cleveland. 

The program originally used a paper booklet, but will now be available through the Destination Cleveland app beginning July 1. 

"Transitioning to a digital app will help protect the health and safety of patrons and brewery staff by eliminating the exchange of printed materials," Destination Cleveland said in press release.

The program has also been extended through Dec. 31 to make up for the time breweries were temporarily closed under Gov. DeWine's Stay at Home order.  For more information, click here
