The attic was very challenging. It was also pretty creepy! My buns were a little scared 😱. My boyfriend and I had a lot of fun trying to figure it out.

Unsure when I first arrived, but absolutely loved the dark wine tasting. Enjoyed the escape room even though we failed. Our favorite part was our host Wolfie! Overall a great experience!

I wasn’t sure I would like this... but it was awesome ! Family friendly - great to do with teenagers. Everyone was involved lots of laughs. Lots of thought in the story line and tasks to find clues. Definitely doing this again !!

Thanks Becky! Glad you enjoyed The Brewery! Hops are, of course, the most important and puzzling ingredient in Dr. Wunderbrugghen's Brouhaha.

Yes, you'll be added to another group, but if you want, you might be able to rent the room for just the two of you together.
