Bierkraft is celebrating their 2nd annual Oyster Shuck and Cask Festival this Saturday April 14. The event kicks off the Brooklyn Beer Summit and opens the Bierkraft patio for the warm weather months. Last year’s oysters were fresh and shucked by an impressive team from Bierkraft that served them along with some of the best local beers you can find. We loved Kelso’s Oyster Stout last year. This year the local breweries like Brooklyn, Kelso, Barrier, Sixpoint and Greenport among others will have casks available and are sure to bring some great cask beers. Given the great selection last year we were happy to find that there were half-pours available to allow for more tasting. Thankfully the weather looks like it will cooperate, with temperatures expected to be in the 70s for the weekend.
