Murder Mystery Dinners at Bube’s Brewery are hosted in the Alois Restaurant in the original tavern/hotel building that is part of our historic brewery complex. Nearly all 19th century breweries had a tavern at the brewery, and our facility fortunately has the original tavern with dining rooms, a barroom, a ballroom, and even lodging rooms upstairs. The atmosphere is much like a fine Victorian home of the late 1800’s. The lavishly hand-stenciled walls, the original oak bar, the deep colors and ornate decor in what was the genesis of the restaurant here at Bube’s Brewery looks like the sort of place you would expect a mystery dinner to happen in, so we brought the idea to life.
The dinner begins with a few light appetizers available in the original barroom as you arrive. The original bar is set up for service (beers from our microbrewery are available as well as liquor, wine, soda, and commercial beers). When dinner begins, a salad is waiting on your table as you sit down. (‘Action’ occurs between courses, some will hear it and some won’t, hopefully those interested will discuss it). Next, a soup course is served, followed by the main course. Beef and chicken, along with bowls of vegetables and rice and a sauce are served family style in much the same way food would have been served in our restaurant in 1879. Dinner concludes with dessert.
The King of the Philadelphia bootleggers, Max Hoff, has called together the bosses of all the gangs to meet at Handgun Henry’s speakeasy to work out some issues so that everyone can profit. But maybe there is more afoot than meets the eye. Then Handgun Henry’s niece shows up and we find out that Handgun’s brother, her dad, is a cop! While everyone tries to help convince the niece that they all came to Uncle Henry’s ‘health retreat’, business between some of the bosses starts to get a little dicey and YOU are in the middle of it all!
