Next week, our Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout will be available for purchase year-round with distribution throughout the country.
A dry stout brewed with local Rappahannock River Oysters, Pearl Necklace was initially released as a limited edition brew last November.
We decided to brew it year-round not only because the beer itself was well received, but also because it supports a cause essential to our backyard. Proceeds from the beer benefit the Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP), one of the region’s leading nonprofits restoring oysters back into the Chesapeake Bay.
Drinking Pearl Necklace literally helps restore one of the most endangered habitats on the planet. Here’s what ORP Executive Director Stephan Abel had to say:
“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. Every oyster we plant back into the Bay will have an immediate, positive impact.”
Our goal is to enable ORP to plant at least 1 million baby oysters back into the Chesapeake Bay through proceeds from Pearl Necklace. It will be available in all markets where our beer is currently sold on draft and in 6-packs.
