Indy’s got quite the beer scene, and USA Today agrees.

Indianapolis was named the No. 3 best beer city in the US by the media company.

Coming off this news, Visit Indy announced it’s bringing back the Indy Craft Pass — the official beer passport of Indianapolis. The mobile passport is designed to give anyone (whether you’re a local or a visitor) an incentive to get out and explore Indy’s brews.

The passport includes 37 participating locations, ranging from Sun King, Centerpoint, and Triton Brewing to Hotel Tango Distillery, West Fork Whiskey, and Easley Winery.

Indy Craft Pass officially relaunches today (Thursday, March 9) and pass users are invited to celebrate at Sun King Brewing downtown at 6 p.m. Anyone who has signed up for the Indy Craft Pass 2.0 will get a complimentary pint and the opportunity to cast a vote for your favorite can art design for the new “Indy Pale Ale” beer that Sun King will be releasing in May. Register for the event.
