The Denver Passport is the Mile High city’s guide to two-for-one craft cocktails and it’s back for another summer.

Founded in 2013, The Passport Program is a local’s guide to the city’s best cocktails. It premieres in both summer and winter, so we advise that people who are just recovering from their boozy adventures in the cold months rally and prepare for a summer full of cocktail discovery. The summer edition will feature 66 Denver spots (plus two pizza joints) and we have the complete list below.

“For our sixth summer we compiled a list of the 66 best bars and restaurants Denver has to offer,” said Amy Osgood, director of The Passport Program. “We’re featuring Frank Bonanno’s not-yet-opened Moo Bar in the Milk Market, while also not forgetting about his other concept Luca and its frozen Aperol Spritzes. We’re including James Beard award-winning chef Jennifer Jasinski’s newest concept Ultreia, as well as the nationally anticipated American Bonded. And making its first appearance in the Denver Passport is the beloved El Chapultepec, which will offer 2-for-1 ‘jazz-themed-cocktails.’ Also new this year, one can get 2-for-1 slices at Marquis Pizza and Sexy Pizza, because who doesn’t love pizza!”

Ultimately, the summer passport is a program designed to show locals the best of the cities beverage scene. It does, however, serve a purpose beyond booze. The passport is a supporter of the Colorado Restaurant Association’s Angel Relief Fund. A portion of passport sales in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs will support the Angel Relief Fund’s mission of helping hospitality professionals recover from the unexpected by offering emergency assistance grants to those facing an unanticipated hardship. Additionally, in an effort to celebrate local educators the passport is setting up its own summer passport scholarship. The first 1,000 teachers that apply, in each city, will receive a free summer edition passport.

The Denver Passport Summer Edition is valid from May 25 through September 3. It will go on sale May 15 at 10 a.m. here.
