They are your passage to bonus beers and the chance to win prizes during the festival, and in 2023 will also ensure you're kept up to date with all things #PoO23 from program launch through to its finish on May 21.
They're digital – just sign up and yours will appear on your phone / computer. We've added a new element in 2023 too, allowing you to upload a photo.
What's more, we're giving away four GABS Booster Packs* each week until GABS Melbourne to new signups selected at random. Each gets the winner a ticket to the GABS session of their choice plus $50 spend.
And once the festival is up and running you can start gunning for a share of the Pint of Origin Mega Prize Pool – see below for details!
How Do They Work?
- Sign up by entering your name, email address, and a password.
- This signs you into pintoforigin.com and brings your personalised #PoO23 Passport to life within the site.
- You can upload a photo too.
- You'll receive occasional updates from The Crafty Pint team to ensure you don't miss out on anything.
- Then, when the festival starts on May 12, each time you buy a first beer at a #PoO23 venue, ask to scan their unique QR code.
- Each scan gives you a stamp in your passport. You can only scan once at each venue.
- As long as you don't sign out of pintoforigin.com, you'll remain logged in for the purposes of collecting stamps.
- When you buy a beer at your sixth venue, you'll receive a bonus pot. Conditions may apply as to which beers are available for the bonus pot, as stipulated by the venue, due to the high cost of many PoO beers. Please respect their decision and be kind. It's been a rough few years for everyone in beer and hospo so we're sure smiles and gratitude will go a long way!
- If you collect 12 stamps, you'll get another bonus pot at the 12th venue. The same conditions apply.
- We'll also be running a Passport-related competition during the festival. Details below.
- We've also added the ability to rate the tap lists and #PoO23 experience at each venue, as well as the ability to send in any bright ideas you have for us to make Pint of Origin even better in the future. You input remains between you and us, rather than public, and we'd love to hear your thoughts!
The Pint of Origin 2023 Mega Prize Pool!
As in 2022, we've amassed prizes from all 20 venues ready to hand them to the most adventurous of our 2023 travellers. It's nice and simple: make sure you scan your passport at every venue you visit for a beer between May 12 and 21 and those who visit the most will win their share of the prize pool.
If there's a repeat of last year, when around 15 people made it to every venue, we'll draw the winners at random. With three more venues, but also two more official days of #PoO than in 2022, we suspect it may come down to this again, but let's see.
The prize pool will be split into five equal parts, each made up of four of the venue prizes and valued between $400 and $500 each. The usual competition rules apply as set out in the terms and conditions.
Look out for the prizes from all 20 venues here when Pint of Origin kicks off on May 12!
