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.
In the height of the prohibition Handgun Henry Engle’s speakeasy was a heaven of vice, women and bathtub gin. It’s just another night of sin; with Fast Eddie Ford and new bootlegged shipment of hooch from Canada, Miss Pearl and her girls of “hospitality” on the second floor and more mobsters than you can shake a stick at. Trouble happens when word comes from the Boss; a stool pidgin is snooping around working for Eliot Ness and the Feds. Find the stoolie and save the speakeasy, and keep the good times rolling.
Murder Mysteries are a live dinner theater experience. This includes 3 hours of live interactive entertainment and a 5 course meal. All alcoholic/nonalcoholic beverages (other than water and coffee at the end of the meal) are not included in the ticket price.
