    This would be an amazing adventure to gift to my boyfriend for his birthday! He is always so passionate about Portland and it’s history.

  2. E. Harty September 30, 2015 at 12:59 pm #

    Recently moved to the area, and I can’t express enough how excited I am for Halloween in Portland (what a great place to celebrate my favorite holiday). What could be better than celebrating Halloween? Doing it with good beer.

  3. Deidre Riekhof September 30, 2015 at 1:02 pm #

    Originally from Missouri, been living out here with my boyfriend for 2+ years now but he hates to be scared; Halloween is my ultimate favorite time of year and he flatly refuses to do or watch anything scary with me. I would love to take him on a haunted journey and maybe try to make him shake in his boots! Please, please, please help me achieve this.

  4. Kelli Eddy September 30, 2015 at 3:44 pm #

    I’m spending my birthday week in Portland. I would love to join you on this tour to help celebrate! Portland, Halloween, and beer! Win! Win! Win!

  5. Mitch September 30, 2015 at 4:20 pm #

    Anyone done this? Been thinking about doing this with some friends. Free tickets would be awesome and convince my friends to buy tickets to come along.

  6. Jessie Holter September 30, 2015 at 7:55 pm #

    My sister, my boyfriend, and my best friends birthdays are all in October. If I won free tickets to this, I would have one present off my list of expensive presents to buy (just graduated from college.. Time to pay off those student loans). Anddddd because who doesn’t love beer and halloween!? :)

  7. Shannon September 30, 2015 at 8:52 pm #

    I would love to go to this. I’ve been wanting to go do the ghost tours but never had time so this would be perfect

  8. Mitch west October 1, 2015 at 12:27 am #

    Heading back home for a week (5th-11th wish it was longer) and I was looking for something fun to do with my buddy while I was there. This sounded SO cool as soon as I read about it. Totally up our ally for an activity. History, beer and ghosts..what could be more fun?

  9. melissa fowler October 1, 2015 at 12:42 am #


  10. Peter Conley October 1, 2015 at 11:27 am #

  18. Wayne October 1, 2015 at 3:33 pm #

    Besides being an avid beer lover in the NW, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I have been on Seattle’s Ghost Tours but never to my hometown in Portland. I would love to know more about Portland’s most famous ghosts and what a nice break from school at Portland State University.

  19. Danielle October 1, 2015 at 3:34 pm #

    I know it says BeerQuest “Walking” Tour but I hope they don’t mind if I stumble, crawl, stagger, and limp with the ghouls and spirits of Portland.

  20. Michael Moreno October 1, 2015 at 3:45 pm #

    I already have the perfect outfit from the Portland Zombie Walk… I would love to use it again.

    The zombie apocalypse will be a formal event, that’s why we are dressed in our best when buried. True fact.

    Thanks PDX Pipeline!

  21. Shasha Andrews October 1, 2015 at 3:46 pm #

    I’ve never gotten to do a pub crawl, and I’ve always wanted to participate in this particular one. Portland is the best for shiz like this!

  22. Rachel October 1, 2015 at 3:48 pm #

    Halloween is my favorite holiday but unfortunately I will have to work all weekend. This would be an awesome way to celebrate the holiday!!
    what’d the ghost say when the blanket fell off the bed?

  23. Rachel October 1, 2015 at 3:51 pm #

    Halloween is my favorite holiday and unfortunately I will be out of town on business that whole weekend– this would help my case of FOMO!! :)

  24. Jo October 1, 2015 at 4:05 pm #

    This sounds so fun! Always wanted to go on a “pub crawl” in Portland!

    Thanks!! :)

  25. Dana G October 1, 2015 at 4:17 pm #

  42. Carly October 2, 2015 at 10:04 am #

    I just moved to Portland a month ago and have been reading all about the city’s history and exploring as much as possible to try and get a feel for the place. Not to mention trying all the new beers I come across! Haven’t gotten a change to explore the Old Town District yet and would LOVE the chance to hear some stories about the places we’re visiting – especially ghost stories!! =D

  43. Carolyn October 2, 2015 at 11:18 am #

    I love hearing about the history of Old Town.

  44. Lanette Higley October 2, 2015 at 12:25 pm #

    I feel dead people, so going on a haunted tour might bring up some interesting folks, not necessarily in flesh & blood. Would be interesting to sense, possibly see who is hanging out in old Town Portland. Love me some cider, fun folks, and a chance to feel/see some spirits.

  45. Rochelle Gurusinghe October 2, 2015 at 1:49 pm #

    My birthday is on Halloween & as soon as October rolls around the spooky antics begin. This would be perfect!

  46. Amy R October 2, 2015 at 2:33 pm #

    Because I ain’t afraid of no ghost!

  47. Rhiannon Arriaga October 2, 2015 at 2:48 pm #

    I would love to get these tickets because I am a freak about Halloween and I love beer!! Plus, I asked my wife to marry me at Old Town, and we got our engagement photos done there! Pick me!

  48. Shillina October 2, 2015 at 6:05 pm #

    It’d be great to see her – I’d love to go!

  49. Perry October 2, 2015 at 7:34 pm #

    Yes finally an alternative to pumpkin patches and corn mazes! I have to go to this!!

  50. Catherine G. October 3, 2015 at 10:35 am #

    This sounds soo amazing!! What’s more fun than beer and hunted-ness!
    What a awesome way to get to learn about Portland’s past.

  51. Tamara Curry October 3, 2015 at 11:14 am #

    Oh my Goddess, yes please.

  52. JohnTheAnimal October 3, 2015 at 11:25 am #

    What a fantastic way to spend the evening! I helped do the construction at the old White Stag building and the tunnels were the best part. Super spooky, and some delicious IPAs sound right up my alley!

  70. Holly Goode October 5, 2015 at 2:24 pm #

  75. Steve Burnett October 6, 2015 at 8:07 pm #

    I often aimless wander downtown when I’m drunk, but this will give me a purpose

  76. Max Hunger October 7, 2015 at 9:57 am #

    Beer crawls are such a blast. It’s a good thing that the MAX can get you in and out of town though.

  77. Danielle October 7, 2015 at 4:19 pm #

    So excited to visit Portland for the first time this Halloween!! Celebrating my best friend’s birthday. Halloween is her favorite holiday and I want to make this trip to Portland special and ‘weird’ for her! We worked so hard to get tix to Portland. Plz help make our experience that much more awesome!! We can’t wait to crawl!!

  84. Kristy Alberty October 8, 2015 at 3:22 pm #

    OMG! Haunted beer!

    Or is it regular beer served to ghosts ON the tour, or regular beer served to regular people in a haunted bar? Because, there’s an important difference there.

    Can I bring my DSLR camera?!? Because I am dying to know the tawdry secrets of Portland’s Old Town, and if I’m drinking, I won’t remember what they are. Then, I just make it up and then people start calling about the reports of the regular secret rituals of the ghosts of transvestite Pirates in the Pearl District. And nobody wants to know about that.

    Please pick me? Happy Halloween!

  85. jason tinsley October 8, 2015 at 3:24 pm #

    Yay! Drunk ghosts!

  86. Bryna Cooper October 8, 2015 at 3:29 pm #

My mother in law and her friend are flying across the pond to come visit over Halloween. When we lived in England, Halloween wasn’t celebrated nearly as big as what I’ve experienced growing up here in Portland. I would love to show them how much fun the holiday can be and really get them into the spirit! What better than pairing it with beer and a night around the city!
