    We’ll be holding a Children’s Easter Egg Hunt for the kiddos on Sunday April 1 at 12:30pm. Bring your own egg basket, and watch your kids run off some energy in the Beer Garden while you enjoy a cold Riggs beer.

    Children will begin the hunt promptly at 12:30pm; when all the eggs have been found, it’s over. In order to maximize fun for all the little ones, we ask that children participating in the event be age 10 or under. Older children are welcome to cheer them on from the sidelines while enjoying a cold juice or soda!

    Our Beer Garden is family-friendly. Feel free to being a picnic lunch to share after the hunt! “Smoked” food truck begins serving food at noon.

    Event may be cancelled in case of inclement weather. We’ll post here if it’s raining too hard, or you can call the brewery on the morning of the egg hunt.
