This July, beer buffs can purchase brews from around the Queen City for a good cause.

Through the Ales for Trails program, beer buffs and hiking fans will be able to collect stamps from participating breweries by purchasing brews all month long.

The stamps will be collected on a Trail Hop Card (found at any participating breweries or online) which can be turned in for prizes. The first 100 people to turn in a completed Trail Hop Card by July 31 will be entered into a raffle for a grand prize plus receive an Ales for Trails Buff.

Participating in Ales for Trails benefits the CROWN, a proposed 34-mile urban trail loop around the city. Led by Tri-State Trail, this project hopes to use $44 million in public funding, plus $10 million in private donations, to complete Cincinnati’s first urban trail loop.

The loop will connect a series of local trails that include Wasson Way, Ohio River Trail, Little Miami Scenic Trail and Mill Creek Greenway.

“We’re so excited to partner with breweries along the existing and planned trail route to build support for completing the CROWN 34-mile urban trail loop,” director of Tri-State Trails Wade Johnston said in a release. “Just like our neighborhood breweries, the CROWN is a welcoming public space that connects people in our community.”

The participating breweries are located along the CROWN trail. Participating breweries include: Streetside Brewery, Listermann Brewing Trail House, MadTree Brewing Company, Fifty West Brewing Company, Wooden Cask Brewing Company, Sam Adams Cincinnati Taproom, Urban Artifact, Taft's Ale House, Taft's Brewpourium and Woodburn Brewing.
