Craft Beer Walks

Old Bakery Beer Company and Alton Odyssey Tours have teamed up to provide the area’s first Haunted Craft Beer Walk. The stroll includes stops at five haunted locations paired with a five-ounce pouring of one of five different Old Bakery brews.

Tours begin in the second story of the historic Simeon Ryder Building, overlooking the mighty Mississippi River. Wet your whistle while learning why Alton is considered one of the most haunted small towns in the USA. After a quick version of Ghosts 101 and a demonstration of ghost hunting tools, ​you’ll be ready for an interactive ghost hunt in some of Alton's most historic and haunted locations.

Locations include the brick ovens of the old Kendall Cracker Factory, tunnels of the Underground Railroad at the Enos Sanitarium and a stop at the Old Post Office. Our last stop will be a visit to the once majestic Hilltop Room at the Stratford Hotel, never before featured on a haunted tour!!

Haunted Craft Beer Walks take place on May 5 and September 29 at 7 pm and October 6, 13, 20, 27 and November 3 at 8 pm

Tours begin at 31 East Broadway, Alton, IL, home of My Just Desserts
