  • One Passport in use at a time (designated Active Passport).

  • Please be patient when stamp gathering. Our staff work to accommodate Passport holders to the best of their ability at any given time. Swearing at and arguing with staff is not tolerated, and may be grounds for refusing stamps and for McMenamins to take further measures if deemed necessary by the Manager on Duty.

  • Rules and prizes subject to change.
  • Have a question? See our Frequently Asked Questions section. Still have a question? Email

Getting Started

  • When you get your Passport, fill out the first page with your name, email, phone number, signature and photo. If you do not have a photo (or one that clearly identifies you) you will need to show your valid photo I.D. when receiving a new stamp. Note: You must be 21 & older to use a Passport. The Passport does not replace legal identification.
  • Register your passport with our McMenamins Portal. Registering your Passport creates your McMenamins Portal account.

What you need to register:

  • Your Passport number (located on the inside of the front cover of your Passport).
  • Your own email address. Two people cannot share an email address.

Why you need to register:

  • We can only replace lost, stolen or mangled Passports that have been registered with McMenamins Portal. Once registered, you can request a replacement with the click of a button. (Note: we can only replace stamps you've already received by seeing them in a mangled Passport.)
  • After you have become a Cosmic Tripster, you will claim your concert tickets or movie tickets through your McMenamins Portal account.
  • Once you’re a Cosmic Tripster, you will book your free hotel stays through the McMenamins Portal.
  • The process of becoming a Cosmic Tripster will be easier and speedier if you’re registered prior to claiming your Grand Prize (you’ll have to register at the Front Desk if you don’t ahead of time).
  • To keep up with all the Passport happenings via our monthly Passport email (events, discounts, special stamps and more).

Gathering Stamps

  • When you visit any McMenamins, ask a server, bartender or front desk agent for a stamp.
  • There is no purchase required to gain location stamps. 
    • You may receive a location stamp by completing the clue/task. OR
    • Grab a bite or a pint or make a purchase and you can receive the stamp without needing to solve the clue.
  • If calling in a to-go order, please let staff know you’ll be getting a stamp when picking up your order.
  • Stamps are not available with delivery orders.
  • Stamps can only be received during normal business hours. A small few exceptions apply (see small bars for details). Please plan ahead when traveling for stamps.
  • Please call ahead and check the app if you’re looking for a specific stamp as some locations are still not open and small bars have very limited hours.
  • You can receive stamps for visiting a location (pub, hotel, small bars) or when you complete different McMenamins' experiences (Examples: Attend a brewfest, Get a spa treatment).
  • Some stamps require an additional photo or may require you to purchase a ticket to a concert or movie. (This will be noted on the passport with a camera icon or ticket icon icon). See below for additional details on these extra steps.
Small Bars:
A handful of our small bars currently offer:
  • A QR code quiz for you to complete to receive the stamp.
  • If the bar is closed, you can do the hunt – even if the bar will be open later that day.
  • You’ll need to visit each bar individually to get the hunt.
  • Example: Jerry’s Ice House at Edgefield is not open until 5pm but it’s noon: Go to the bar, scan the QR code posted at or outside the bar and complete the task to get the stamp, which will be available at a designated location.
  • Not applicable to all small bars
  • Find the full list of applicable small bars here.
  • Because this rule is a departure from the original iteration of the Passport, we will review and reevaluate it as time goes on.

The McMenamins App & Passports:

  • The smartphone app is available for free in the Apple & Google Play stores
  • Use the app to see locations near you for gathering stamps, beers on tap, menus, music & much more!
  • The app is meant as a companion to the Passport, not a replacement
  • The app cannot be used to collect stamps & prizes, become a Cosmic Tripster or replace a lost Passport
  • More app information here

Home Base Pub (page 37):

  • In new versions of the Passport, you will find a grid of 10 stamps for your "Home Base" Pub.
  • These stamps are not required for Passport completion.
  • To get the stamp on that page, you must spend a minimum of $10 per visit. 
  • One stamp per day (you wouldn't be able to spend $20 in one visit and get two stamps). 
  • Once you get 10 stamps from the same location, you can collect a $20 gift card!
  • Our staff will sign the white box at the bottom of the page when you collect your gift card. 
  • Promotion is NOT VALID in older versions of the Passport that do not have a Home Base Pub grid on Page 37.


  • When you get all the stamps for each region, your server will confirm your stamps and award you a prize.
  • Specific location prizes are listed in the Passport.
  • Food prizes can be eaten in the restaurant or taken to go.
  • Food prizes come as they are described on the menu. If you’d like add-ons, that cost will come extra, not included as part of the Passport prize.
  • If a prize is a “Burger of your choice” then anything under the burger section on the menu or any item that has “burger” in the name, counts as a prize. The same goes for sandwiches and appetizers.
  • “Basket of tots or fries” prize comes as a small basket.
  • When you complete your Passport page for a hotel, go to the front desk to receive your prize.
  • Hotel prizes rotate and cannot be exchanged for anything other than the choices offered by front desk staff.
  • Exclusive Passport merchandise prizes may rotate and cannot be exchanged for anything other than the choice(s) offered by staff.
  • You don't have to redeem your prize on the spot when you get your final stamp in a Passport region. However, you can only redeem the prize at one of the locations listed within that region.
    • Example: if you gather all the stamps on Page 8 for ‘Hawthorne Boulevard', but don't want your free tots prize at that time, you can return to one of those same 5 locations when you want to claim the prize.
    • Example: if you gather the 2 stamps on Page 20 for ‘Salem' and want to stop in another time to one of those 2 spots and enjoy eating the prize, by all means! (Just don't plan to gather the Salem prize in Corvallis, which is also on page 20).
  • Prizes may be claimed from older Passports, BUT not while actively collecting stamps in a new Passport. You cannot collect prizes in more than one Passport at a time.
  • Once the white box below the grouping of locations is signed and dated by one of our servers, we'll know you've collected the prize.
  • When you've received all of the location stamps in your Passport, you can redeem the grand prize at any McMenamins hotel. (Note: You can receive your last stamp at any location, but the final prize redemption is only available at a hotel.)

Passport Code of Conduct

The McMenamins Passport was created to inspire exploration and discovery, give patrons incentives to see all that McMenamins has to offer, and to be fun! The Passport code of conduct asks all Passport holders to stay true to the spirit of the Passport. The spirit of the Passport is all about the pub experience: good food and drink, good people, and lasting memories. As a Passport holder, you agree to the following:

  • Be kind
    • Be polite; no swearing, harassing or arguing with staff.
  • Be honest
    • It’s a very generous program, with just a few stipulations. Use of multiple Passports, or using someone else’s Passport are grounds for revocation of the Passport.
  • Visit locations when they are open
    • Stamps will not be given out when a location or small bar is closed. Please plan accordingly and when in doubt, call ahead.
  • Follow the rules
    • Any rules we have placed around the Passport were created with a purpose in mind. Belittling staff for following the rules is not tolerated and does not respect the spirit of the program.

**Failure to comply with these rules may result in the confiscation of your Passport**

Passport Just-for-Fun Stamps

Are you wondering about the blank pages in the back of your Passport, the ones that just say things like "Seasonal Beers" at the top? Those pages are reserved for the many just-for-fun stamps you can collect. So if you attend a location’s birthday party, or go to a Tripster party or a holiday celebration such as St. Patrick’s Day, or New Year’s Eve at the pubs, or order a seasonal beer, you can get the corresponding just-for-fun stamps--bragging rights are on the line!

Passport FAQs

Getting Started
Q: What is a McMenamins Passport?
A: The McMenamins Passport is your way of keeping track of all the McMenamins locations that you visit--and our way of rewarding you for doing so! Collect stamps at all McMenamins Pubs, Breweries and Historic Hotels.
Q: Ok, but what is an Active Passport?
A: As we now have many Cosmic Tripsters who have finished multiple Passports, an Active Passport is the current, not-yet-completed Passport that you are actively usising to collect location stamps
Q: Thirty-five bucks! Why do I have to buy a Passport? Shouldn't you just give it to me as a loyal fan?
A: Exclusive Passport T-shirts, custom growlers….you’ll be given these and so much more along the journey, just for collecting the location stamps – making it all worth the initial cost. Passports are sold at all our locations or online.
Q: Can I share a Passport with someone else?
A: No, each Passport and its unique number is assigned to an individual. This means your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors...will all have to get their own Passports, but can share in your journey by gallivanting together!
Q: Can I buy a Passport if I'm not 21?
A: No, Passports are only for those 21 and older. But it's a great thing to ask for as a present for your 21st birthday.
Q: Can I give a Passport as a gift?
A: Yes, you can give them as gifts, but the recipients must be 21 or older.
Q: Can I use the ‘Passport Tracker' within the McMenamins app to track my stamps instead of my printed Passport?
A: No, the handy gems in our app are to help you along the Passport journey, so keep ahold of your actual Passport to redeem prizes and gather actual stamps.

General Rules
Q: How long do I have to fill my Passport?

A: You can take as long as you want; the Passport doesn't expire. So whether it takes you two months or 10 years...take whatever time you need to gather all the stamps to complete your Passport.
Q: Can I use 2 Passports at the same time?
A: No, only 1 Passport per person. When you finish one you can start another though. You need to become a Cosmic Tripster and have the completion stamp on the front cover from a McMenamins Hotel before you start that next Passport.
Q: Can I help my friend/partner/spouse by getting their stamps because they couldn't make it to the pub?
A: No, only the owner of the Passport can receive stamps and prizes for that Passport.
Q: I'm a Cosmic Tripster--can I get a new Passport?
A: Yes! Just remember: when you begin gathering stamps in that second Passport, you can only use one Passport at a time, so that first Passport will need to be retired, just used to show your Tripster status. Also, you can only complete two Passports per year, so take your time and enjoy the Quest.
Q: What is the Passport Code of Conduct?
A: Please read up on the Code of Conduct above. It outlines our expectations and the agreements you are making by taking part in the Passport program.

McMenamins Portal
Q: What's the McMenamins Passport Portal?

A: The McMenamins Portal is your one-stop Passport management center. You can register new Passports here and it will make the process of becoming a Cosmic Tripster much easier. Also, registering your Passport is the only way that you can receive a new Passport if you lose it.
Q: What else can I do with the Portal?
A: Once you become a Cosmic Tripster, you will use the Portal to claim your concert or movie tickets and book your Cosmic Tripster hotel stays.
Q: What happens if I do not register?
A: That’s OK, however you will need to register at the hotel Front Desk when you become a Cosmic Tripster, and that time would be better spent celebrating your Quest!

Gathering Stamps
Q: Do I have to purchase anything to get a location stamp?

A:  You do not! When visiting a location, ask the staff for a stamp. They will then direct you to complete their location's task. Once you finish that, you get your stamp!
Q: What if I'm eating or having a pint, do I still have to search for the task?
A: Nope! If you're making a purchase, you can receive the stamp without needing to solve the clue or complete the task.
Q: What if I go to a location and one of the bars are closed that I need to get a stamp from?
A: If that bar has a QR code listed, you can do a quiz or hunt to get the stamp from the front desk. If not, you'll have to come back when the particular bar is open. We recommend that you check ahead for hours of the small bars, especially if you're taking a trip just to get the stamps in your Passport. The small bars with limited hours are notated with an asterisk (*) on the actual Passport.
Q: What happens if you open a new pub before I'm done getting all my stamps?
A: You'll need to add the new location to your journey and get that stamp before you can complete your Passport. Please see this page for the list of new locations you may need.
Q: Do I have to get all the Experience stamps to fill my Passport?
A: No. But we sure hope you try as many of them as you can. (Plus you get a $20 gift card for every 4 you do). See the "Experience Stamps & Beyond" section below for more information on these stamps.
Q: What if I've essentially been doing my own Passport and I already have a list of every McMenamins I've gone to?
A: That's awesome! And as much as we appreciate your patronage, we started fresh in order for our stampers (aka our many employees) to have a straightforward, official Passport to stamp based on your smiling face showing up in their location. So you'll have to purchase a Passport and start your journey again in order to receive the prizes. The road to the grand prize begins with one small step into a pub....
Q: Darn it, the dog ate my Passport! I dropped it in a puddle and it disintegrated! OK, so I lost it, what now?
A: If you registered your Passport number online, we will replace it. Please see the Lost or Damaged Passports section for details.

Extra Steps designated by a Camera or Tix Icon
Q: What does the Camera icon mean?

A: At some hotel locations you'll have to take a photo to get your stamp. Head to the hotel front desk to see what piece of artwork you need to find. Once you find the artwork, take a photo (selfie!) with you and the artwork and show the hotel front desk staff to receive your stamp.
Q: What does the Tix icon mean?
A: The ticket icon indicates that tickets are needed to get inside that location and get your stamp. Note: There are some free shows, tours and/or special events such as birthdays that do not require purchasing a ticket to get the stamp. These locations do not have a task associated with them for the stamp. Entry into the venue is enough for the stamp. Locations include: Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room, Elks Temple Spanish Ballroom, Bagdad Theater and Mission Theater.

Q: I gathered all the stamps on one page. Do I have to get my prize right now?

A: Nope! You don't have to redeem your prize on the spot when you get your final stamp in a Passport region.
Q: Ok, but now I do want my prize for finishing out a region. Can I get my prize at any McMenamins?
A: You can only redeem the prize at one of the locations listed within the page you've filled. For example, if you gather all the stamps on Page 8 for "Hawthorne Boulevard" locations, you'll need to claim your prize at one of those same 5 locations. Additionally, we ask that you please inform staff that you are claiming your Passport prize at the time that you order. Our staff will thank you!
Q: Can I collect my location prizes after I become a Cosmic Tripster?
A: Yes! But only as long as you're using your Passport just to collect prizes and not using a new, active Passport. Passports are always one at a time and you cannot claim prizes from more than one Passport at a time.
Q: My prize says it's a "Burger of your choice" what qualifies as a burger?
A: If it's under the burger section on the menu or has burger in the name, it counts! The same goes for sandwiches and appetizers. These are available to-go as well.
Q: I’m claiming my burger prize, but I want to add bacon, another patty, mushrooms and a fried egg or two. Are those included for free?
A: The free burger (or any prize really) comes as it is described on the menu. If you’d like soup, salad, sweet potato fries or any other add-ons, that cost will come extra, not included as part of the Passport prize.
Q: I love the exclusive Passport prizes, like the t-shirt from Roseburg or the custom growler; can I buy one for my friend?
A: These prizes are just for you, the Passport holders! While we don't sell any of these items, all one needs to do to get one is buy a Passport and start stamping.

Experience Stamps & Beyond
Q: What is an Experience stamp and how many Experience stamps are needed for an Experience prize?

A: When you participate in an Experience activity (defined in the Passport itself) you can receive a specific stamp. All Experiences are listed either in the Passport on pages 4, 5 and 6, or in the Passport Insert. Examples: Play a Game (shuffleboard, pinball, pool), Buy a Pint of McMenamins Hard Cider, Tour the Edgefield Winery, Stay the Night at a hotel, Relax with a Spa Treatment, and many more! For every 4 experiences completed, you earn a $20 gift card. The gift cards can be claimed at any location, but not all Experiences are available at all locations. See below for details.
Q: Can I pay for my experience with the gift card after I get the stamp?
A: No, you have to purchase the experience and then get the gift card. For example: you cannot buy a beer flight and then pay for it with the gift card you’d get after the flight.
Q: Do I have to get all the Experience stamps to fill my Passport?
A: No. But we sure hope you try as many of them as you can. (Plus you get a $20 gift card for every 4 you do).
Q: For the Experience stamps, if I stay the night four nights in a row can I then get a $20 gift card?
A: Nope, only one stamp per Experience. But if you stay the night we're sure there are other Experience stamps you can get during your stay, so you may just earn that $20 gift card after all.
Q: Can I continue collecting Experience stamps in a completed Passport?
A: Yes, but since you're only allowed to have one active Passport at a time, once you start another Passport, the finished (Cosmic Tripstered) Passport will need to be retired and only used to show Cosmic Tripster status for happy hour purposes.
Q: Can I collect Experience stamps in more than one Passport?
A: No, as you are only allowed to have one active (stamp collecting) Passport at a time. 
Q: Why are there blank pages in my Passport?
A: We have many "just for fun" stamps that you can collect along your journey. Wine month stamps, Ruby's Birthday stamps, and Irish Stout seasonal ale stamps are just a few stamps can pop up at any time. We will inform you of new stamp opportunities in our Passport emails (sign up here!) and on the McMenamins Passport Facebook page.
Q: I've heard about this "Home Base Pub" page. Can I get it in my Passport?
A: The Home Base Pub stamps and gift card can only be received in new versions of the Passport that have the grid on Page 37. 
Q: Do all the Home Base Pub stamps need to be from the same location?
A: Yes, all 10 stamps on the Home Base Pub page must be from the same location. To get the gift card, that page must have 10 identical stamps.
Q: Can I get 10 stamps all over Edgefield; say one from the Power Station, one from the Distillery, etc.?
A: No. Stamps must all be the same, so you must go to the same spot each time. 
Q: What if I have a cool McMenamins experience and want a stamp?
A: This is why we developed the “Just-for-Fun” stamps for many of our events – so you can gather cool stamps in the back pages of your Passport showing you were there! There are no prizes affiliated with the gathering of just-for-fun stamps. This includes [but is not limited to]: Edgefield Concerts on the Lawn, McMenamins Brewfests, property birthdays, holiday events such as St. Patrick’s Day, and stamps received at the Cosmic Tripster parties.

The Passport "Insert"
Q: What is the Passport insert and is there a cost?

A: The Passport Insert is a separate set of 8 experience stamps (leading to two $20 gift cards!) which are not included in the main Passport. The cost of the Insert is $5.00. The Insert also comes with extra pages if you're running out of room collecting all those "just for fun" stamps.
Q: Can I only get the "Make Merry at McMenamins on Your Birthday" stamp on my actual birthday?
A: The stamp can only be received on your actual birthdate; bring your photo ID so we don't have to guess how old you are.
Q: I want to get my "Have a Pint with Your Pup" stamp. Can I get this at any McMenamins?
A: Not all locations are pet friendly; check our pet friendly page for a list of locations. Once you know where you're headed, just bring your living, breathing pet out for a pint and we'll give you the stamp. One stamp per pet per visit.

Grand Prize
Q: I did it! Now, where do I get my grand prize?

A: The grand prize and your final completion stamp deeming you a "Cosmic Tripster" are available at any of our historic hotels.
Q: Do I have to go to a hotel to get my last stamp?
A: Yes and no. You can get your last stamp at any location. However, to be officially done with your Passport and to get your grand prize and to start taking advantage of your year of happy hour drink prices, you have to get a completion stamp in your Passport. Those are only available at our hotels.
Q: Are there a limited number of grand prizes?
A: No. Every person who fills their Passport will get the grand prize.

Cosmic Tripsters
Q: I'm a Cosmic Tripster and get my drinks for happy hour prices. Can I buy drinks for my friends at this price, too?

A: No. The happy hour price only applies to you, even if you're nice enough to buy their drinks. But anyone in the group can make a toast! Additionally, we ask that you please inform staff that you are claiming your Cosmic Tripster happy hour discount at the time that you order. Our staff will thank you!
Q: Does my Cosmic Tripster happy hour discount extend to specialty cocktails?
A: Maybe. The Cosmic Tripster happy hour discount only applies to beverages that are actually on the happy hour menu and regularly get discounted during that time. So if there is a cocktail on the happy hour menu, it gets the discount, otherwise no discount.
Q: I'm a Cosmic Tripster. How will I find out about the parties and exclusive fun stuff I can go to?
A: McMenamins will send you e-mails and post these announcements on our McMenamins Passport Facebook page (be sure to give it the ol' thumbs up "like" on Facebook).
Q: How do I get invited to the Cosmic Tripster Party?
A: When you officially become a Tripster, you (and you alone) qualify for attendance to one Tripster party. The party that you attend will be based upon your completion date. Please see this page for more info.
