21st Amendment Marooned On Hog Island is back in the can lineup

21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island

21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island, the brewery’s oyster stout, is back in the lineup once again.

The California based brewery creates a stout brewed with rolled oats and chocolate malt, plus 200 pounds of Sweetwater oyster shells from Hog Island Oyster Company.

““More than just a fun tale of a like-minded collaboration, this oyster stout is also deep rooted as a traditional style produced in England, where oysters are plentiful and there is not shortage of stout on that island nation. Marooned on Hog Island is our new world interpretation, created with our neighbors at Hog Island Oyster Company just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Tomales Bay, and it is nothing short of spectacular,” – Nico Freccia, co-founder

Hog Island Oyster Company was started by two passionate guys John Finger and Terry Sawyer, much like 21st Amendment was. The salinity in the brine and the calcium of the shells give this beer a slightly salty touch to this stout

The new San Leandro brewery expansion allowed 21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island to be re-brewed for the first time since 2012.

DC Brau & Baxter Brewing Create New Can Collab

Lewiston, Maine’s Baxter Brewing and DC Brau (Washington D.C.) have teamed up on a new collaboration beer – Daughters of Poseidon. A stout/ipa hybrid brewed with oysters.

Brandon Skall, founder of DC Brau and Luke Livingston of Baxter Brewing met a couple of years ago at the American Craft Beer Festival in Boston. Their breweries were founded about a year apart, and both can their offerings. Both breweries are even close to the ocean. Why not collaborate?

The result is a unique recipe, more like a dark IPA than a stout, brewed with precisely the same ingredients at both DC Brau and Baxter. Except that the DC version uses locally sourced Rappahannock Oyster Co. Olde Salt oysters, and the Maine version uses oysters from Glidden Point Oyster Company in the Pemaquid (ME) area.

The duo spent time each oysters on the water in Boston during their time at the festival. A perfect way to remember their meeting was to add oysters to the collaboration. 800 pounds worth, to be exact. DC Brau/Baxter Daughters of the Poseidon will be available in 16oz cans for a limited time.

Style: Stout (w/ Oysters)
Availability: 16oz Cans
Arrival: May 8th, 2014

Release Events:

Meridian Pint (Washington D.C) 5/8, 5 pm
Deep Ellum (Boston, MA) – 5/29

Flying Dog Oyster Stout Now Year Round

Flying Dog invites you to drink drink beer and restore the Chesapeake Bay all year long.  Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout will officially be a year round beer, distributed across the country.

The beer is a dry stout brewed with oysters from the Rappahannok River in Virginia.  Proceeds from the beer benefit the Oyster Recovery Partnership.

“Our initial work with the ORP was just the beginning,” Ben Savage, Flying Dog’s VP of marketing, said. “Sales of Pearl Necklace will continue to benefit the ORP and also raise awareness nationwide of how critical oyster restoration is to the Chesapeake Bay.” The goal is to enable ORP to plant at least 1 million baby oysters back into the Chesapeake Bay through proceeds from Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout. “A healthy oyster reef not only filters the Chesapeake Bay’s waters, but also provides habitat for other important marine life such as blue crabs and striped bass,” Stephan Abel, Executive Director of the ORP, said. “Every oyster we plant back into the Bay will have an immediate, positive impact.”

Style: Dry Stout (w/ Oysters)
