How to Prepare for Your Dripping Trip?

The Dripping With Taste Trail App

Install the app onto your personal mobile device to check-in and earn your RXP (Real Experience Points) throughout the Trail. You can view your check-in history, RXP totals and update your personal profile all on the app.

A Plan For Each Trail Stop

Using the Dripping With Taste Trail app or our Website, find the profile page of the joint you are planning to visit. Then look for their operating hours, Trailblazer exclusive discounts and opportunities for special events and point bonuses.

Your Registered Device to Check-in Using the Dripping With Taste Trail App

You’ll check-in by either tapping your phone on a Trail check-point (usually near the point of sale), or by being close enough to a beacon at an event.

A Responsible Hunger for Adventure

If you enjoy an adult beverage or two on The Trail, please ensure you do so responsibly and make a plan for designated drivers and/or hotel accommodations to safely travel between Trail Stops.
