I am doing the quest "promises to keep" and i persuaded sibbi to give me the key to his stash.

I went to the Black Briar brewing. Went to the basement and at the bottom of the stairs is the chest. I have the key in my inventory but it will not allow me to open the chest. Keeps saying that a key is required.

Bug? Am i doing something wrong? Suggestions?

You have to go to Black Briar Lodge not the Black Briar Brewery. – ヴァイシャリ Apr 22 '12 at 7:58

Go to the Black briar lodge you are in Black briar meadery.

There will be two men outside in front of the lodge, an archer and a swordsman. You can either fight them and enter through the front or sneak around and open the basement door on the West side of the house.

Once downstairs, there will be a barrel in the back with the papers in a strongbox. The papers may also be found on one of the tables.

More about the quest here.
