The New Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail Guides You On A Craft Drink Journey
Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory is renowned for its maker culture, and craft drinks are no exception. From one-of-a-kind craft breweries to on-farm cideries to award-winning distilleries, and even an inventive hard citrus drink, the new Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail is here to guide you on your craft-drink tasting tour.
Released in February 2023, the Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail is a free mobile passport that connects the region's breweries, cideries and distilleries. Use the pass to "check in" when you arrive at each participating location, plus Tap Trail users can redeem special deals. Each check-in or redemption will earn you points, which you can redeem in the pass for prizes along your journey. And as if that weren't enough, each check-in and redemption will also count as one entry for the grand prize: a two-night stay on Mt. Hood. The winner will be selected in January 2024.
Along with new pass functionality and new prizes, there are also quite a few new stops along the Tap Trail.
● TMK Creamery & Distillery – For a truly unique tasting experience, venture to TMK Creamery & Distillery in Canby. The folks at TMK are so dedicated to a zero-waste cheesemaking process that they’ve found a way to turn their whey byproduct into a deliciously smooth vodka-like spirit. Visit their on-farm distillery, taste the vodka and delicious cheese and meet the cow-lebrities that make it all possible.
● The Mt. Hood Brewing Co. – There are few things better than a post-adventure beer, and The Mt. Hood Brewing Co. in Government Camp is located in the perfect spot to unwind after your alpine adventure, no matter the season. Refuel after a day of exploring Mt. Hood with an amazing selection of food and beverages. Bonus: They offer a great outdoor seating area during the summer.

● Ruzzo’s Retreat – We’re sure you’ve heard of hard cider and hard seltzer. But what about something in between? Ruzzo’s hard citrus is a fermented drink flavored with botanicals and fruits. Explore what Ruzzo is all about at their Damascus location.
