Safety First

Designated Driver Program

You don’t need to drink to be a Bend Ale Trail champion. In fact, our biggest champs don’t sip a drop. Earn big by being a designated driver for your group.

How To Drive & Win

  1. Pick a designated driver. The designated driver is someone who is not drinking ANY alcohol for that entire day and is responsible for transporting his/her group safely along the Bend Ale Trail.
  2. Pick up a free passport from the Bend Visitor Center.
  3. Use the last page in the paper passport to collect your “Designated Driver” stamps.
  4. Collect 5 stamps from any establishments on the Bend Ale Trail and redeem your passport at the Bend Visitor Center for your unique Designated Driver prize.

Don’t have a DD of your own?

You’ll find plenty of safe and knowledgeable tour operators standing by to make your BAT experience that much better. They’ll set you up in style in a cushy bus, a snazzy towncar, or even a Cycle Pub. If you’d prefer to hoof it, start from downtown Bend where more than two-thirds of the breweries are within walking distance.
