what our investigators say

We asked our investigators what they like about Brewed Clues.

These are their stories. 

We did the Carrboro tour about a year ago and decided to try the Durham one. It was SO fun. Wasn't sure how it'd compare to Carrboro but we could not have had a better time. 10/10 recommend for a date night or group of friends! - Jack B., Durham

I surprised my boyfriend with our investigation as a date and it was amazing!! We had our expectations coming in but the tour totally blew us away, was full of surprises and took us to places we would have never visited otherwise. We consider ourselves craft brewies but were pleasantly surprised and stumped by the mystery beers on hand. I really recommend this for others looking to have a date night outside of the norm, or for a small group of friends to enjoy some drinks in a nontypical way. 10/10 would recommend and we will definitely be doing this in another city soon!! - Paula G., Carrboro

I love Brewed Clues! It's a great activity to do with friends to learn more about beer or discover new bars in the area. Can't recommend it enough! - Kat N., Carrboro

Had a great time! Did one afternoon while visiting friends in the area enjoyed the brews and the game while discovering new places. Definitely a great idea and would recommend for any who enjoy craft brews. - Jeremy B., Raleigh

So much better than just sitting at a bar. Great evening with friends! Had fun visiting bars we didn't know about and drinking beers we wouldn't have known to choose on our own. - Leslie J., Raleigh

This is the second time I've done the Brewed Clues and I've enjoyed it immensely both times. I'm just getting into drinking craft beers and this is an excellent way for me to figure out which ones I like and which ones I don't. - Misty H, Raleigh & Carrboro

This was a fun event and the setup was very engaging. We enjoyed the trivia, puzzles and tasting the beer while guessing the flavors and styles. The final prize was a nice touch too. Well done! - E. A. R., Raleigh

A great time to enjoy some beers, some exploring, some puzzles, and some trivia with friends. Fantastic night, thank you! - Liam D., Raleigh

Really fun experience, great bars/staff, great questions. - Stacia W., Raleigh

We had a great time following the clues from bar to bar. Not being real beer connoisseurs, we barely got any of the information about the beers right, but we had fun anyway. Great choice of locations. - Cheri S., Charlotte

Fun clues and good beers! - Connor P., Carrboro

It was a lot of fun. It was cool to get a small tour of the city and try breweries. My friends lives here and had never been to one of the breweries. We also liked how the last brewery was in a basement bc the walk was longer and it was nice to be in a cool dark bar for the final stop. I will absolutely recommend this to friends. - Whitney A., Asheville

This experience was so much fun! The beer tasting was amazing and the clues to go to each new location were a blast to follow. Really hoping there will be a new case in Charlotte soon, would love to do it again! - Stacy N., Charlotte

We had a really enjoyable time! Brewed Clues took us to three bars in Raleigh that we had never been to before, and the whole process of following clues and blind tasting the beers was well laid out and fun. We are looking forward to trying the stops in another city nearby. - Joe D., Raleigh

Great experience. We never have been to Carrboro, so this tour really got us to look around and see what the town has to offer. - Ryan H., Carrboro

I loved it! The premise is a fun way to see new parts of downtown raleigh. At all of the bars we went to, the staff were super nice! Would love to be able to do something similar again. - Molly L., Raleigh

My husband, friends and I had a great time. We really enjoyed trying to solve the clues. The beers were great. Excellent experience! We truly enjoyed it. - Allie T., Asheville

Very fun! Directions were simple and easy to follow. We all enjoyed getting to try new beers and bars that we may have not known about otherwise! - Julianne R., Carrboro

It was a lot of fun. Even for non locals! - Alicia K., Asheville 

What an awesome way to spend an evening. We had two friends visiting Charlotte and it was a really nice way to experience some of the local brews as well as play a game. We ended up getting snacks at the different bars we visited, and then when we finished we got dinner. What a great experience! Definitely would recommend. - Jill B., Charlotte

We had lots of fun and found some new breweries to visit again next time!! Great for a group of friends! - Robin B., Asheville

Great fun! We didn't know a lot about beer but that didn't stop us from enjoying and learning a lot! Thanks for organizing a fun event! I'd definitely do it again! - Ann S., Raleigh

I was looking for something to do for my sister's birthday that was fun and different. This was perfect to explore the different places and ended up eating dinner at one of the locations! It was exactly what I was looking for and a great way to celebrate her birthday! We are already planning our next adventure at the other location! - Brittany T., Raleigh

Loved the new Durham mission!!! It was hysterical and we found some awesome bars that we (surprisingly) hadn't been to before. Can't wait to do it again! - Sara P., Durham

This was clever and so fun. I live in Asheville and thought the bars on the tour were perfect. Good to get back to some old places and try some new brews! - Stephanie R., Asheville 

I loved the combination of trivia, adventure, and blind beer tasting. Would say it's ideal for a group of friends. I have little to no beer tasting experience and still had a great time. I'm sure those with more craft beer drinking under their belts would thoroughly enjoy as well. Fun, witty, boozy. - Annie J., Carrboro

Such a fun experience! Super easy to navigate and the bars were great choices! - Natalie H., Carrboro

This was a fun afternoon for my husband's birthday with friends. The clues were fun and interesting to learn the answers. Overall, great experience for an easy afternoon. It was well worth the money! - Lynelle C., Raleigh

Everything was great from the communication setting up through completing the activity. - Samantha N., Raleigh

Great way to spend the afternoon. We really enjoyed trying new beers and even found a new brewery. We are local to Asheville and discovered some watering holes we had never been too before. Hopefully Brewed Clues will create a few more adventures for our town! - Kurt N., Asheville

We had a great time and visited breweries that we had never been to before. The clues part was loads of fun too. - Linda S., Asheville

Our group had an exceptional time. We dressed up with fun glasses and walked around slowly taking in the beautiful town of Asheville while answering all the fun questions. Thanks for the experience. - Amanda S., Asheville

It was really fun to be able to see all the bars and answer questions! I enjoyed the experience, maybe in the future you can add more places! - Meg B., Raleigh

My friend and I had a great time going from bar to bar, clues in hand. We enjoyed the challenge and the various beers and was a terrific way to spend a Friday night. The chosen bars ranged from expected to eclectic, and we enjoyed them all (especially the last one) - it was great way to see Carrboro! would gladly do it again! - Tom B., Carrboro

My husband and I had the greatest time! Would absolutely recommend for a fun night out! - Bailey T., Charlotte

What a fun time! We had a great experience working through the clues and enjoying local breweries' wares. Thanks for putting this together! When we go to Asheville next, we plan to participate there, too. - Susannah M., Charlotte

My fiance' and I had a great time! It was one of the cutest dates we've ever been on. We have told our friends about it and they are buying them too! Thanks so much for a great date night! - Alicia S., Charlotte

So much fun! Thank you! I can't wait to do another. - Katy L., Charlotte

10/10 would DEFINITELY recommend!!! Such a fun experience 😊😊 - Barbara N., Durham

A group of 5 of us did the investigation for one of our birthdays and it was such a blast. It was a totally new way to see Carborro, visit new bars, and try some awesome beers. Such a fun and cool idea! - Shelli G., Carrboro

It was super unique and really fun! We loved answering the questions as we walked from bar to bar. The three locations were also great. What a great idea! - Rebecca S., Carrboro

1. the beer, obviously.
2. the locations. the bars chosen for the charlotte tour were fantastic.
3. the organization. we were one of the first charlotte tour groups, so i was a little worried it wouldn't come together that well. i had nothing to worry about, since it all came together perfectly. - Emma S., Charlotte

This beer tour is such a fun experience! It's unlike anything else I've seen. First of all, the beer choices were delicious and varied. The tour allows you to try new beers and learn about what you're tasting. Second, our group had so much fun figuring out the mystery! The clues are witty, and working them out as a group is so funny. Also, great choices on bars!! Such a fun activity to do with friends or co-workers, and a great alternative to the typical happy-hour. - Ellen M., Carrboro

Loved the experience! Very fun way to try new beers/see new bars! - Brigid W., Charlotte

We loved the mystery and competition of trying to figure out what beer we were drinking along with the clues along the walk. - Cory S., Raleigh

My friends and I really enjoyed this. It was something different, fun, and interesting. We are from out of town and wish we had this where we live. - Angela A., Charlotte

What a wonderful, well-organized experience! It was great fun with delicious beer and restaurants. Great way to try new places too! - Kathe N., Carrboro

The investigation took us to fun places we had never been before! The walk was nice with some questions along the way to help keep us going the right direction. The beer selections were very diverse. Our group had a great time. - Sarah A., Raleigh

Fun, fantastic idea. The bars were super accommodating and all had totally different, unique atmospheres. Great variety in locations and beers. - Fazel K., Durham

It was so much fun and a great way to explore some new areas in Raleigh. Very well thought out and executed. - Sarah C., Raleigh

Loved it! Had a blast! Thank you and ready for the next one. - Jacqui R., Charlotte

It was so much fun! We definitely want to try Brewed Clues in another location. - Katie B., Carrboro

We had a great time. We did this as a father-daughter date and it definitely lived up to the great reviews we read before purchasing our tickets. Very excited to see if expand to have more cases and different beers to try! Would definitely do it again with new beers and case files! - Emily C., Carrboro

I decided to do a Brewed Clues tour with several friends to try something new over the weekend and I had a great time! Basically, it is a scavenger hunt/trivia/blind taste testing event through several breweries. We had a great time figuring out the clues to get us to the next location and it took me to some places I never would have tried. I liked that it was self-guided so we could spend as much time at any of the places and not feel rushed. I will definitely check them out again and think it would be even more fun in a city that I am not familiar with (and they have locations in Charlotte, Asheville, and Raleigh)! - Jennie B., Carrboro

Amazing time!!! We will be doing it again! - Emily J., Carrboro

My husband and I were Brewed Clues investigators for a random date day and weren't quite sure what to expect before showing up to the first bar. With our mission in one hand and beer in the other, we ended up having a great time working together to solve the mystery while also competing against each other to figure out the beers! Would definitely recommend to a friend (and already recommended to curious strangers). Now we just need a new mission! - Jalisa F., Asheville

It was excellent. We had so much fun exploring our own little town and going to places we had never been before. The riddles and clues were clever and fun. All three bars were accommodating. The atmosphere and beers was excellent. Kudos to the last stop - what a unique place! Thanks. We'll try Raleigh next! - Lorrie M., Carrboro
