The Story

Tom Schmidt, head brewmaster at Spearhead, has mysteriously disappeared. We suspect the infamous Jim Moriarty is behind this dastardly act.

While Tom’s safety is of paramount importance to us, there is a complication – he’s hidden his brewing recipes away and the rest of the staff desperately need them if they have any hopes of delivering delicious new beer to this fine city. Do you have what it takes to solve the mystery?

About the Room

This is our newest case and it’s a special one! We’ve joined forces with Spearhead Brewery to deliver this experience. It includes a free 16oz Spearhead beer, a tour of the brewing facility and a 30 minute escape (inside the brewery!). All ages are welcome, however the free beer is only for those of legal drinking age. The brewery is well lit and the escape experience doesn’t involve any climbing or crawling. Once you’re done, stick around in Spearhead’s taproom and enjoy some of their delicious brews on tap.
