Are you a gambler and like beer? I have an unusual activity for you: the
a treasure hunt in Strasbourg on the theme… of beer, yes! L’échappée bière is a nice and original treasure hunt that allows you to have fun, to walk around Strasbourg but also to discover the world of beer, to learn how to taste it and finally… to taste some good beers! Not a bad program, right?
I tested the beer trail game with friends on a beautiful autumn afternoon. The game takes place in the city center of
and lasts about 3h/3h30. This may seem like a long time, but it actually goes by very quickly when you are busy, which is the case in this game. The general idea is to follow the tracks of an old brewer (imaginary!), in order to find the place where he would have hidden his recipe… To do this, you must solve a number ofriddles that are in a booklet given at the beginning of the game. I found the game really well done: the puzzles are neither too difficult nor too simple, perfect to rack your brains while having a relaxing time. It allows at the same time to make a beautiful stroll in the city and to discover pretty hidden details (notice to the Strasbourgeois: you should undoubtedly learn things too!).
Tasting stops are planned along the way (provided you have solved the riddles, otherwise you won’t get the addresses! And of course I won’t tell you more, just know that they are good addresses). The idea of the game is also to learn how to taste beer. Some information on the different types of beer are given in the booklet and you are asked to fill in a little questionnaire at each tasting, to try to find out which beer it is (not easy by the way!). Fortunately, this does not affect the resolution of the enigma… It does have some to do with making your team win against others playing the game at the same time as you!
