If you love beer, Halloween, and Christmas, you’re in luck – a series of festivals dedicated to all three are popping up around the United States.
Throughout November and December, Rockstar Beer Festivals is hosting a limited number of boozy “Nightmare Before Christmas”-themed events in cities on the West Coast, in the Midwest, and in the South.
Attendees will get unlimited beverage samples and have opportunities to pose with their favourite characters
This year, the annual event kicks off with The Nightmare Before Brews Cruise in Portland, Oregon, on November 23.
Other festivals and cruises will take place throughout December in cities including New Orleans, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Louisville, Kentucky.
Each ticket comes with unlimited drink samples from a range of festive, winter-themed and pumpkin-flavored ales. For many of these events, these drinks will be coming from local breweries.
Attendees will also be able to order “Halloween-Inspired Christmas Cocktails” and winter-appropriate comfort foods, although it’s unclear what exactly these offerings entail.
There will also be photo opportunities and music involved
Each night there will be entertainment from the Skeleton Sisters (or Skeleton Boys) singing hits from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” movie and there will also be a dance party hosted by DJ Oogie Claus.
Plus, attendees will also be able to pose with Jack Skellington, Sally, and other characters from the film.
Tickets start at $US35 for most of the festivals, and the cruise starts at $US42. These prices will go up as the date of the event gets closer, so if you’re interested you may want to get your tickets sooner rather than later.
This isn’t the only ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’-themed event happening this year
On December 20, a nightclub in Austin, Texas, is also hosting a “Nightmare Before Christmas” festival that’s only for adults. The event is set to have sing-alongs, special themed cocktails, and even photo opportunities.
Guests are encouraged to dress up and tickets cost between $US10 and $US13.
