Hit The Road At Pint of Origin And Win!

Pint of Origin returns to Melbourne for a twelfth time from May 10 to 19 with another huge lineup of brewers, beers and events awaiting attendees. At last count, beer lovers will be able to hunt down beers from more than 225 breweries located on four continents at the 21 #PoO24 host venues.

To help attendees make the most of the adventures, we've made improvements to the Pint of Origin Passports, creating Mini-Crawls in different regions of the city and amassing our biggest prize pool to date. Thanks to our prize sponsors Brompton Bikes, Beervana, Bogs, Thirsty Merchants and The Crafty Cabal, there's prizes worth $9,000 up for grabs.

You can sign up for your Passport via the festival website now – or sign back in to your existing one from previous years – ready to reap the rewards when it all kicks off on May 10.

The Rewards


The best way to enjoy Pint of Origin is with a digital #PoO24 Passport on your phone. It allows you to track where you've been when you head out on a crawl with mates, but also brings added benefits.

Bonus Beers!

  • Collect stamps at each #PoO24 venue you visit: ask bar staff to scan their Passport QR Sheet when you buy your first beer
  • When you buy a beer and collect a stamp at your sixth, twelfth and eighteenth venues, you'll get a free beer*

Win Prizes!

One of the big changes for 2024 is a major expansion of the Passport Prize Draw. In previous years, the draw has been for attendees who make it to the most venues over the festival which has ended up being between those who "complete" the festival and make it to every single one.

While we love our most ardent Pint of Origin fans, we know not everybody has the time to traverse the city to visit 21 pubs and bars in ten days. So we've divided the city into five Mini-Crawls – see below – with prizes up for grabs for anyone that completes any of those on top of the draw for those that hit the lot.

The Prize Pool!


To be drawn from those who complete all 21 venues:

  • First prize:Brompton C-Line (Fire Coral) Explorer 6-Speed + Carradice Rydal Rucksack – RRP $3,189
  • Runners-up: Two Beervana packages featuring three nights accomodation in The Oaks in Wellington plus early access to any two sessions – Value approx $1,500 per package**
  • PLUS! Every attendee that makes it to all 21 venues gets a personalised Pint of Origin beanie from Thirsty Merchants featuring your choice of name / nickname
  • AND! We'll draw five more winners of a 12-month Crafty Cabal membership plus branded glassware and a stubby holder

We'll also draw winners from each of the five Mini-Crawls:

  • Two winners of a pair of Bogs boots per Mini-Crawl, with a choice of Digger Mid or Holly – RRP $129.95
  • Plus one runner-up per Mini-Crawl wins a 12-month membership to The Crafty Pint's beer club, The Crafty Cabal – value $99

*NB 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 Pint of Origin beers, venues might offer a specific beer or beers, or a smaller serving size for their bonus beer. Please respect their decision and be kind.
**If you are unable to travel to Beervana for the festival on August 23 and 24, we will redraw that prize, and award you one of the Cabal prizes.
