Delectable Oysters We fly in over 25,000 fresh oysters from both coasts and offer a tantalizing array of dishes, like gumbo, Rockefeller, fried, Po-Boy, and grilled. Of course, the raw bar will offer plenty of varieties on the half shell, so you can try an assortment.
Rich Schlafly Stouts Enjoy your oysters with three delicious Schlafly Stouts–Nitro Irish, Oatmeal and Kaldi’s Coffee–and discover a match made in heaven!
Star Shuckers We used to think people swarmed in for the oysters and beer, but the real stars are our guest shuckers, who we bring in from both coasts. These seasoned veterans of fishing and shellfish farming have become true celebrities over the years. With personalities more colorful than their names, Bimbo, Clam, Rawle, Silky Smooth and Thurman will be back to demonstrate their shucking prowess at the raw bar in The Club Room, Friday from 5:00-9:00 p.m. and Saturday from Noon-8:00 p.m. Read more about Bimbo.
Shuck & Jive East meets West in the 6th Annual Oyster Cup Competition on Saturday evening as our star shucker teams from both coasts show their incredible skills in oyster identification, shucking, slurping and, naturally, Schlafly Stout appreciation.
Did You Know?
Oysters are loaded with essential minerals, protein, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Their nutritional value is often overlooked because people are too busy enjoying them to ponder their healthful properties. Put aside all of the famed aphrodisiac qualities and consider that if you could eat just one thing from the sea, oysters would be a great tasting and extremely healthy choice.
BEER IS GOOD FOR YOU
…and if there is one beer in particular that lives up to that proclamation, it’s stout. Aside from being a feast for the eyes with its rich, black color and thick, creamy head, stout offers a multitude of goodies for both the body and the soul.
Stout was often prescribed to nursing mothers because of its abundance of vitamins, proteins and carbohydrates. Recent health studies have identified flavonoids as the compound in red wine and dark beer that offers health benefits to moderate consumers, and since you can’t get a much darker beverage than stout, well, what more can we say?
Stout is soothing and warming on a cold winter’s night, yet cool and refreshing in the summer. With three varieties of Schlafly stout available, there’s surely one here to suit your mood, your thirst, and of course, your good taste.
