The practice of gathering around the fire on Christmas Eve to tell ghost stories was once as much a part of Christmas for the Victorian English as Santa Claus is for us. Traces of this now-forgotten tradition only appear in conspicuous places at Christmastime. Learn more and join the Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk for a special holiday tour featuring a night of Albuquerque ghost stories and dark Christmas stories from the Old World. This exclusive tour includes stops at three downtown breweries/tap rooms for a special holiday ale or cider (10 oz. pour, included in ticket price).
The Breweries: Sidetrack Brewing Company, Boese Brothers Brewery and Red Door Tap Room.
