You can now go on a 'Nightmare Before Christmas' booze cruise

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas is a true cult classic, with fans of the animated dark fantasy musical as captivated by the now 26-year-old film as ever.

For those who have yet to see the stop-motion flick, it tells the story of Jack Skellington, a pin-striped suit-clad skeleton from Halloween Town, who opens a portal to Christmas Town and decides to celebrate the festive holiday.

Check out the trailer for The Nightmare Before Christmas:

There all kinds of events and merchandise cropping up in honour of the movie, and in just a few days, a Nightmare Before Brews Cruise will be added to the list.

The very first Nightmare Before Brews Cruise departs from Portland, Oregon, on November 23. And joining guests at the party - which takes place on a mega yacht - are characters from the film! There will also be plenty of drinks, food and live music (performed by the Skeleton Sisters) to enjoy - all for just $35.

Rock Star Beer Festivals, the organisers of the brews cruise, released the following description of the event:

"The Nightmare Before Brews Cruise is coming to Portland on November 23rd. Our mega yacht is transformed into Halloween meets Christmas complete with roaming characters and plenty of photo ops. The event features tastings of different Winter, Pumpkin, and Holiday Ales. There will be two areas of entertainment including live music from the Skeleton Sisters (Singing Songs from the Hit Movie) and a dance party with DJ Oogie Claus. Winter comfort food and Halloween-Inspired Christmas Cocktails will be available."

The cost covers a cruise around the harbour, "tastings" of all beers, photo ops, a souvenir cup and access to all of the onboard entertainment.
