Lost unicorn toy gets put to 'work' at Eureka Heights brewery in series of cute posts

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A unicorn toy lost at a Houston brewery will soon be reunited with its family, but not before putting in some 'work' at the business first.

The tale began March 19 when Eureka Heights tweeted that a panicked dad stopped by, looking for his child's lost unicorn toy.

The brewery tweeted that it had the toy after someone turned it in this week but didn't have the dad's contact information.

"Hopefully you see this and swing by to appease the storm you've likely been dealing with at home," the tweet said.

Thanks to the business posting its message on Twitter, the power of the internet helped find the family, but Eureka Heights got some free labor out of it first, saying that the unicorn would have to earn its keep with the production team.

Eureka Heights posted a series of photos showing the unicorn helping out at the brewery, from cleaning the tank and checking the mash to "finally enjoying a well-earned pint."

You can see all of the unicorn's adventures on the Eureka Heights Twitter page.

Eureka Heights says to expect a reunion soon.
