It’s the season of spooky good spirits, ghosts that say “booze”, and witches brews. And now you can franken-stein your Oktoberfest all the way into a Thanksgiving gobble-t-fest thanks to the Laurel Highlands Pour Tour happening now thru November 30th.

The “Boos & Brews” seasonal micro tour is a monster mash-up of 40+ breweries, wineries, distilleries, cideries, and meaderies all participating in a self-guided boos-ey trail. 

To participate just download the free Laurel Highlands Pour Tour app (available on Google Play and Apple), check in at 18 of the participating locations by November 30th, and you’ll be mailed an exclusive “Boos & Brews” long-sleeved t-shirt. (It’s a great way to get a to-die-for shirt without having to run a 5K.) The app also has a map to help you find participating sites and allows you to create your own Pour Tour itinerary. 

Many locations have fall-themed creations like pumpkin beer, hard cider, and spiced spirits — including:

Helltown Brewing’s Big Bad Buffy NEIPA, a special version (aka higher ABV) of their original Buffy recipe

Bella Terra Vineyards’ Harvest, a sweet cranberry wine and Cider House Mule, their cider with gin, ginger beer, and cinnamon

Four Seasons Brewing’s Headless Wylie, a pumpkin beer

Quinn Brewing’s Diesel Dwarf German Altbier 

Greenhouse Winery’s Harvest Moon, a spiced apple wine and their Cranberry Sauced, a cranberry wine 

Whitehorse Brewing’s Pat O’Lantern, a wheat ale brewed with pumpkin puree

Laurel Highland Meadery’s Pumpkin Spice Mead 

As you trick-or-treat yo’self to the Pour Tour be sure to take some time to talk to the brewers and distillers, too. They’re no doubt dying to tell you all about their devilish-ous drinks — and, you never know, you may even find yourself a new favorite haunt.
