I love unique ways of exploring my city because even though I have lived here for more than 7 years I am still learning new things about Toronto every day! Toronto Beer Quest is a scavenger hunt/urban adventure where teams of two solve clues, photography themselves as proof they were at the clue location, and compete to reach the finish line first. All this while learning about Toronto’s beer history!
On Sunday, September 16, 2012, teams will meet at The Charlotte Room for the Prohibition Edition of Toronto Beer Quest! Travelling only by foot or TTC, teams will explore Toronto’s historic places and the people who helped push for temperance and prohibition (known throughout history as the party-poopers), as well as the people who fought
for their right to party against it.
How will they do it?
Each team will receive an identical list of clues and will set out to use their brains and smartphones, as well as their feet, for a chance to win some awesome prizes (and street cred, obvs).
Toronto Beer Quest is a way for Torontonians to experience local beer history in an interactive and competitive way!
Contestants are also welcome to attend in costume. Toronto Urban Adventures will be awarding prizes to the best costumes in the following categories:
- “The Real McCoy” Most Authentic Prohibition Era Costume
- “You Slay Me” Funniest Costume
- ” The Bee’s Knees” Most Impressive Costume
Prizes and swag have been provided by some awesome sponsors:
