Is this a walking brew tour with a side of ghosts or a ghost tour with a side of brews?? While guests will have to decide that for themselves, we can tell you this is not an average "sit there and shut up " tour, but rather an opportunity to engage back and forth with a local Charlestonian. As a combined bar and ghost tour guests will visit two different bars where complimentary appetizers will be served and the guide will provide drink recommendations. As part of the tour guests will also walk by and receive ghost stories near local graveyards and homes, some of which are over 200 years old. The tour will wind down at a hauntingly beautiful local park where one of the first female serial killers was hung. Don't stick around too long after the tour or you may end up a ghost yourself!

It’s a bar crawl, history walk, and paranormal experience with a tarot reading for dessert. Charleston is home of the supernatural, paranormal, and existential: 350 years of graveyards, ghosts, and ghouls in a drinking town with a history problem. Starting at one of Charleston's most notorious watering holes, an upscale dive, we begin our experience at the bar. Listen to ghost stories and tales of Charleston’s darker side while enjoying your favorite beverage. From the bar, we walk to a graveyard. Learn how to see a ghost, and along the way, you may even answer the questions, "Are we alone?," and "Why are we here?" From the graveyard, we walk to another bar. We finish the evening with more history and ghost stories and a tarot reading.
