Easter keg hunt in Wilmington hosted by Bill’s Front Porch kicks off Monday

WILMINGTON — Bill’s Front Porch and it’s brewing operation, Bill’s Brewing Company, will be hosting an Easter “keg hunt” for the city’s craft beer lovers who have grown too old for the candy-in-egg version of the traditional Easter game.

Co-owner Brookes Musser said daily clues will be released on Port City Daily and The Penguin radio station’s websites at 9 a.m. each day of the hunt. They will also be posted on Facebook pages for Bill’s Front Porch, The Penguin, and The Dude.

The keg hunt will begin next Monday and last through Good Friday.

“Whoever finds the keg must take a picture with it, tag Bill’s Front Porch, and bring the keg in to receive a voucher for a keg of their choice to be redeemed within the year,” Musser said.

Josh Lee from the Tayloe/Gray marketing firm said he came up with the concept to complement the traditional Easter egg hunts for kids.

“It’s basically an Easter egg hunt for adults, but instead of an easter egg, it’s a keg. Why not?” Lee asked.

The game is free for anyone over 21 to participate, and once the decorated 1/6 barrel keg is found in a hidden spot somewhere in Wilmington, a chain and padlock must be unlocked using a code found on the keg.

According to Musser, a $50 deposit will be required when the voucher is redeemed to cover the keg shell, bucket, and party pump.
