After our trip to Jimmy’s this past weekend, Chris O’Leary (from Brew York, New York) and I headed over to Bierkraft to check out their new backyard and partake in their first annual Oyster Shuck and Cask Ale Festival. Needless to say, the combination of outdoor drinking and rain showers made the afternoon a quite Portland-esque.
But despite the fowl weather – and lack of oysters by the time we arrived – everyone was in great spirits and we had a chance to try some fantastic beers including a Kelso of Brooklyn Oyster Stout brewed specifically for the event. Its briny character and slight roasted character were perfect on a rainy day with my consolation prize lunch of Meat Hook Bratwurst. Check the photos out below.
