An online tool has created ways for craft beer drinkers and wine aficionados to pour out discounts.

The tourism organization Visit Fairfax announced today the launch of its Locally Poured Field Guide, a free digital passport that comes via text message and email to get deals at breweries and wineries in the region. People can sign up at

“We have seen continued growth in Fairfax County’s craft beverage scene over the last several years and have been working closely with our local brewers and winemakers to support their businesses through tourism,” Barry Biggar, president and CEO of Visit Fairfax, said in a news release.

Discounts currently listed through the online tool include 50% off beer flights at various breweries, 5% and 15% reductions from one’s tabs or bills at two places, and for Lake Anne Brew House, $1 off a new visitor’s first pint, 10% off merchandise and 20% off growler fills. Participants show their phone to check in and redeem discounts.

“This new digital-only Field Guide welcomes Fairfax County’s two vineyard wineries and one urban winery to the fold, in addition to the now 12 craft breweries located within the county’s jurisdiction,” tourism reps said in the news release.

The tourism organization hopes to promote the county’s breweries and wineries and it also includes prize drawings for checking in at seven of the 15 participating locations.
