Alaskan Brewing hosts Spokane scavenger hunt | Community Spirit
The Alaskan Gold Rush is coming to Spokane! But don't head for the river just yet – this gold rush requires a little more patience.
Organized by Fast Eddies owner Matt Goodwin and Alaskan Brewing, the Gold Rush is a six-week scavenger hunt spanning bars across the city, where each clue leads you closer to the grand prize: a gold nugget worth $2,000.
“They're hiding it today because it's kicking off tomorrow,” Goodwin said. Everyone, even the bar employees are eligible to win because it's someone from the brewery who's hiding the prize. “They won't even tell me where it's hidden.”
Every Friday for the next six weeks, bars will offer a deal on Alaskan Brewing products and post a sign with that week's number to text. Each text message delivers a clue, more specific than the last until the final week.
“The sixth clue should get you really close, but you're still going to have to look,” Goodwin said. “I would expect it's going to be at a major landmark that everyone is familiar with.” Last year Goodwin says the scavenger hunt was held in Seattle, with the final clue leading hundreds of participants to a parking garage that they scoured top to bottom before finding the gold nugget certificate.
- Starting tomorrow, you can find the clues at one of the participating bars:
- Off Regal Lounge
- Poole's Public House
- Waddell's (South Hill)
- Fast Eddies
- The Monterey Cafe
- Volstead Act
- Boiler Room
