Just in time for the season, Cincinnati’s own Brewery District has teamed up with Cincinnati Landmark Productions, Cincinnati Escape Room and Christian Moerlein to put on a production that combines history with mystery and an interactive puzzle that you’ll need to solve.
Talk about a brilliant idea… this one is really something pretty special. I have often told you that you should make it a habit of taking a tour of some of our historic brewery buildings every so often – this may be one of the coolest ways that I’ve heard of to do just that.
Can You Solve The Mystery?
The Haunted Brewery tour is a brand new interactive experience that supports the Brewery District while giving you a night you won’t likely forget any time soon.
The tours will take patrons on a trip back in time to meet actual colorful (and doomed!) characters in Cincinnati’s brewing history. Or are they?
Of the five historic vignettes on the tour, four are real and one is fiction. There are clues and hands-on, interactive puzzles along the way that will help you solve the mystery. Will your group guess correctly? If you do, a prize and a place in history await you.
Guests will congregate in the Moerlein taproom (and maybe enjoy a beer or two) while awaiting their entry time. Once you are called, your group of up to 20 people will enter the tour and meet your guide who will lead you through the actual working Moerlein Brewery. But… it’s no longer 2018. The guide has taken you back in time to meet actual historical figures in local brewing lore. Guests will hear the sad, doomed tales of these characters and be presented with an interactive puzzle to solve at each stop. The clues will help guests solve the mystery… which of the five stories presented was fiction?
After your tour, guests can celebrate their victory or drown their sorrows in the taproom, where Moerlein will feature a new specialty beer each weekend!
Wanna Win Some Tickets?
The tour kicks off next week on 10/5 and runs Friday and Saturday evenings throughout October. You can get your tickets online… but I’m also teaming up with the tour to offer you a pretty sweet opportunity to win some tickets. I’ve got three sets of tickets that I’m going to be giving out via social media this weekend. I’m not giving away how I’m going to do it, yet. But I will tell you that you need to follow me on Instagram, and Facebook in order to win!
