Others do oyster stouts or single events, but we take things to the next level with our East Coast Exclusive 3 stop Guided Local Oyster and Craft Brew Tour!
Kings and Queens of Europe prized the sweet and subtly buttery Lynnhaven Oyster from Coastal Virginia’s waters. The population declined for years due in part to overharvesting, but efforts by groups like Lynnhaven River Now and responsible harvesting from oystermen like Capt. Chris Ludford of Pleasure House Oysters (as featured in Southern Living and NY Daily News) have led to a resurgence in the oyster population. On our tour, you’ll visit several award winning area restaurants to sample Virginia oysters in various preparations (raw, stewed, fried, rockafeller, etc.) via our executive coach selected by Chef and Food Historian Patrick Evans-Hylton. Guests will receive guided tastings paired expertly with Virginia craft beers as well as receive regional recipes developed by Patrick himself.
Coastal Virginia is the south end of the newly proclaimed Virginia Oyster Trail, and Virginia is proud to be the Oyster Capital of the East Coast. On our three-stop oyster and craft beer tour, you will experience oysters from some of the seven distinct oyster regions of Virginia paired with award-winning local craft beer.
All tastings and transportation included. NO DISCOUNTS APPLY.
PRIVATE GROUPS of 10-12 BY APPOINTMENT. Larger groups contact us directly for quote.
