Seven years ago, one of the owners wanted to order some oysters and pair them with bourbon barrel aged beers and invited some friends over to The Castle on Christmas Eve to try them, that this would turn into a big annual event!
2019 marks the 7th Annual Christmas Eve Bourbon Barrel Beer & Oyster Brunch! Come join us for fresh oysters flown in from the East Coast, West Coast & Canada, and a variety of very special bourbon barrel aged beers (each specially paired with a cheese by our Cheesemongers).
$15 presale / $20 at the door = 4 oysters and choice of draught beer
(additional oysters & beer sold a-la-cart) NOTE: This event typically sells out. NO REFUNDS/RETURNS.
