Q: How long is the tour?

A: Between 90 minutes and 2 hours.

Q: What happens on the tour?

A: The guide will lead you to three different venues on the downtown square.  At each, you will be served a drink and the guide will entertain you with scary stories and songs.

Q: What venues and what drinks?

A: Exhibit Ale, Cosmo’s Pizza + Social, and McCray’s; drinks TBD.

Q: Where does the tour end?

A: The order of venues changes.  All venues are on the square and an easy five-minute walk back to the Lawrenceville Downtown Parking Deck.

Q: What kind of language should be expect?

A: All sorts of swearing (the kind you would hear in an R-rated movie) plus graphic descriptions of murders and rotting corpses and other ghastly things.  If you take exception to “the F-word”, please sign up for the Ghost Tour or the Haunted Cemetery Tour instead.  

Q: How much walking is on the tour?

A: About 10 minutes during the tour and about 5 minutes to get back to your car if you parked at the Lawrenceville Downtown Parking Deck.  

Q: What happens at the end of the tour?

A: We encourage you to stay at the last venue, order some food, and enjoy Lawrenceville.  Your guide will be sure to point how to get back to the parking deck. Remember, drive sober or get pulled over.

Q: Do I get to choose what I drink?

A: No, all guests will be served the same drink.

Q: Do I have to drink?

A: No. But the ticket price is the same whether you drink or not.

Q: Can I get non-alcoholic drinks?

A: If you wish to drink no alcohol all night, call the Box Office directly and request either water or  iced tea. We will try to coordinate your request with our last two venues, but the first venue is not set up to serve anything but beer. If you are drinking alcohol and one or two are your limit, just don’t take the last drink from your guide.   

Q: What about tipping?

A: Tipping is never expected, but if you have received excellent service from your guide, we hope you will express your appreciation with a tip, especially since they are not only your storyteller, but your server as well.

Q: Will you check IDs?

A: Yes. When you check in before the tour, the Box Office will check everyone’s IDs, so make sure you bring them.

Q: Are there any exceptions to the age requirement?

A: No. You MUST be 21 to take this tour.  

Q: What do I need to bring?

A: Your sober self. Because we are serving three alcoholic drinks, if you are visibly intoxicated when you check in for the tour, the Aurora reserves the right to refuse your entrance to the tour.  

Q: What makes this tour different?

A: The stories are bloody and bawdy and there is also music with guides singing a couple of murder ballads during the evening. And unlike the other tours, this is a party. Expect the evening to get louder, more vulgar, and gorier as the night goes on.  

Q: Is this tour wheelchair accessible?

A: Yes

Q: Is smoking allowed on the tour?

A: No.

Q: Can I take photographs?

A: Absolutely. Please post them onto social media with the hashtag #LvilleBrewsAndBoos

Q: Will you tell the same stories on Brews & Boos as you tell on the Ghost Tour or the Haunted Cemetery Tour?

A: No, this will be completely different material.

Q: Does each guide give the same tour?

A: No, unlike the other tours, each Brews & Boos guide does a completely different set of stories and songs.  If you wish to take the tour more than once, contact the Box Office and they will know which guide will lead the tour on which nights.
