  • Overview

    Join Discover Albany and the Albany Public Library for an Amazing Race-style scavenger hunt across Albany! Inspired by Albany Ale Projects historian Craig Gravina's summer "Neighborhood Brew Tour series", this self-guided driving tour is a race against the clock, and will uncover the incredibly rich history of Albany's brewery history. The tour will begin and end at Quackenbush Square.

    1. You may have up to six (6) people per team from the same household or group.

    2. All team members must be in the same car.

    3. All teams will be provided with a map and information about the sites. It's up to you to decide the best route!

    4. Once you've reached your location, you must take a picture with your landmark and your team sign visible. (Don't worry, we'll provide the sign!) Your entire team, with the exception of the photographer, must be present in the photo. No selfies!

    5. If you encounter another team, masks and social distancing must be in place. Masks and social distancing will be enforced at Quackenbush Square.

    6. Each team will sign up for a time slot via Eventbrite. You will have a two hour time limit. If you complete the scavenger hunt within the time limit, your team will be entered to win our prizes!

    7. Please obey all traffic laws! Remember you are in a race against yourself – not the other players. Your goal is to finish within the two hour time frame. Not to come in first! Be safe!!
