For many in the Portland area, Easter Sunday celebrations include beer, BBQs, and watching children partake in scavenger hunts for hard-boiled eggs.
To add to the city's fun, on Saturday night (April 15, 2017), GrowlerWerks will hide five uKegs -- with an added imbibement prize -- for the responsible adults of the Portland Metro area to hunt for on Easter. Let the games begin!
The uKegs will be left in tap houses located in each of the five sections that make up Portland: North, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest.
With 89 amazing craft beer tap houses in Portland, this will be no easy task. To retrieve one of the five hidden uKegs, GrowlerWerks will be posting five photos of the five pubs' tap lines at 11 a.m. on Easter Sunday to this blog post, our Facebook page, Facebook Event, Instagram, and Twitter. When you recognize the tap line, head down to the location and recite this Catholic beer blessing:
"Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. ..."
In order to receive the bonus prize, those who find an Easter uKeg must post an Instagram photo of their new favorite growler on the bar of the tap house, tag @growlerwerks in the photo, geo-tag the pub's location and put #EasteruKegHunt17 in the description.
(All Locations Open Betwen 11 AM & 12 PM)
Help GrowlerWerks spread our city's robust passion for craft beer! Put on your finest drinking cap, not just your khaki shorts and pastel button-ups, and hunt uKegs this Easter.
