We know the locations.  We have the deadline.  It’s as simple as completing the “Beer Hunt” in the right order to get the secret code.  And, most likely, it’s the most puzzling thing you’ll do this may.

Skeleton Key Brewery (and friends) came up with a fun game that can help you win some cool stuff.  To start off, all you have to do is sign up here … it’s free!  Make sure to sign up people!!!

Eight total clues.  Solve the first puzzle, it’ll tell you the first place to visit.  Make sure to go there when they are open.  You don’t necessarily have to make a purchase at each location … but it doesn’t hurt!

If you visit all 7 locations … you will get a special code that can be used at all participating locations.  And, one winner will be chosen from everyone completing the hunt to take home a swag bag of stuff from all of the different locations.

Once you’ve figured it out:

  • Visit the correct brewery during its curbside pickup hours.
  • When you arrive, call the brewery and state, “I’m on a hunt.” (If you have placed an online order in advance, mention that, too!)
  • Give the password, which is ANY one of the fake beer names from the list above.
  • You will then receive your next clue…and they get tougher as you go 😉 If you ever get stumped, you can click here to request a hint.
