This is NOT Halloween, but that hasn’t stopped one company sailing to glory with a Nightmare Before Christmas booze cruise. While the debate still rages on whether The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween or Christmas movie, there’s no escaping the fact that Henry Sellick’s 1993 stop-motion marvel is a classic for the ages.
If you want to celebrate all things Jack Skellington, now you can with a Nightmare Before Christmas ‘brews cruise’ courtesy of Rock Star Beer Festivals. Leaving from Portland, Oregon, on November 23, tickets cost $42.84 and include plenty of frights and fun.
Those who board this nightmarish adventure will be greeted by live music from the Skeleton Sisters and witness DJ Oog Claus on the decks. As you dance the night away into the witching hour, you can knock back “winter, pumpkin, and holiday ales”. There are also Christmas-themed cocktails and winter comfort food. As the promo video shows, there’s a giant block of ice made to look like the Pumpkin King himself.
If you miss out on the cruise, fear not. Rock Star is combining our love of booze and ‘boos’ with The Nightmare Before Beerfest in Indianapolis, Louisville, San Diego, Las Vegas, Long Beach, and Houston.
Unfortunately, a booze cruise is about as close as we’re going to get to a Nightmare Before Christmas continuation. That being said, there were talks earlier this year that the House of Mouse could once again ‘resurrect’ the franchise.
