In the early 1900s, a mysterious kidnapping occurred in London, ON. Having recently perfected a recipe for a new type of beer, the local brewmaster was taken during the night. The kidnappers have demanded a $200,000 ransom be paid for his safe return AND the recipe for the new beer be handed over. You and a few other townsfolk must gain entry to his brewery where there is enough money hidden to pay the kidnappers. But be careful, not everyone is interested in having him returned…
