A new app has been developed to help promote the craft beer scene.

The new Barrels Bottles & Brews app launched by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island invites visitors to check-in at six or more locations where they can experience the history of Canadian Whisky, Prohibition, and enjoy a flight of craft beer or small batch-ultra premium spirits.

The new app offers visitors a seamless way to keep track of their check-ins and an easily accessible map. As a bonus, participants can receive an exclusive offer when they check-in at each location. Once their passport is completed, they can redeem it for an official Barrels Bottles & Brews t-shirt.

“The explosion in our local scene is a result of the enterprising spirit in the area combined with a potently viable and sustainable demographic who enjoys ‘tapping into’ the beer and whisky market”, says Gordon Orr, CEO of Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island. “This fulfills another valuable and enriching asset in our culinary product portfolio which cross-pollinates so well with other foodie-driven offerings.”

The app was created by local developer EatDrinx Inc. and is available for iOS and Android operating systems by searching for “Barrels Bottles & Brews” in the Apple App Store and Google Play
