2014 Dinner Dates

  • November 16
  • December 14

It's 1908 and Star Brewery owner Joseph Rhomberg is in need of a new brew master. John Trick who held the job since the brewery opened in 1898 has left and his chatterbox assistant, Blabby Lifshitz wants the job. Confronted with a gambling debt to raw-boned beer wagon driver Staunch Brucker and the wedding plans of his passionate girlfriend Mazine Twiddler, Blabby pushes Rhomberg to take over the position, and offers a secret German beer recipe as enticement.

Who Done it? You'll have to see the Brew House Mystery Dinner Theater to find out. Only at Stone Cliff Winery, located in the Historic Star Brewery. Make reservations by calling 563-583-6100 ext. 203 or fill out the form below.
