In a partnership with Woodberry Kitchen and Rappahannock River Oysters, Flying Dog is releasing a new limited-edition beer, the Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout. The draft-only release is a dry stout actually brewed with local oysters.
"We are pumped that this beer is coming out at the start of oyster season,” Corey Polyoka, bar manager at Woodberry Kitchen, said in a press release. “Finally, we have a beer made with Chesapeake oysters to drink with Chesapeake oysters."
Proceeds from the beer will benefit the Oyster Recovery Project, which leads large-scale oyster restoration efforts in the Chesapeake Bay. The beer will be released on taps in mid-November in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C.
The beer's launch will be at Woodberry Kitchen on November 14 from 6-9 p.m., where they'll be pouring Pearl Neclace, shucking Rappahannock River oysters, and enjoying the music of Cris Jacobs and members of The Bridge. Tickets are $35 and reservations should be made through Woodberry Kitchen.
