On Saturday, May 13, at 3 pm, Union Square, Ellsworth’s young professionals organization, will be hosting its second annual Great Golden Keg Hunt, presented by Atlantic Brewing Co.
Up to 20 teams of up to four will make their way to participating businesses and puzzle stops throughout downtown Ellsworth to complete puzzles, games and physical challenges. As the teams complete the tasks, they will gather clues leading them to unlock hidden (empty) golden kegs around the city. The first team to the finish line will win over $1,500 in prizes — including a $100 “tab” at each participating business, and the value of a keg of beer from Atlantic Brewing Co. This year participating businesses include Cadillac Mountain Sports, Flex-It Café and Bakery, the Down East Family YMCA, the Abbe Museum, Mike’s Country Store, Amy’s Salon and Spa, Mortons Moo, The Ellsworth American, 86 This!, The Grand Theater, Pyramid Studios, Finn’s Irish Public House, Serendib and The Rock and Art Shop.
The top three teams win the value of a keg from Atlantic Brewing Co., and the first place team wins a $100 “tab” at each participating business. For a $5 entry fee you can attend the finish line party and be entered into the raffles for additional prizes.
