Postmark Brewing Launches Oyster Stout With Some Help From Fanny Bay
Vancouver, B.C. – Postmark Brewing partners with Fanny Bay Oysters to release an Oyster Stout, a unique small batch Stout brewed with Oyster Shells. Available in 650ml bottles, along with draft kegs. ABV 4.6%, IBU 25.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Fanny Bay on this project. When they approached us to brew a Stout with their oysters we were quite honoured. They have been around for 30 years and are the name when it comes to Oysters in BC.” Co-Founder Nate Rayment
A family run shellfish farm, Fanny Bay Oysters hails from Vancouver Island and now has its very own oyster bar in Vancouver. “We are a unique oyster bar because our product comes directly from our farms to your table. We needed a unique beer that would pair perfectly with our shellfish. Postmark’s amazing beer will be pouring from three of our taps daily to accompany our shellfish centric dishes and raw bar.” General Manager Issac Martin Del Campo.
“Brewing an Oyster Stout was an extremely fun project. There are not many in the industry and in turn there was not much in the way of best brewing practices to follow. Really what we were aiming for was a slight brininess that you search for in the finish and doesn’t overpower the beer. We are extremely happy with how it turned out” Brewmaster Dominic Giraldes.
Located at 762 Cambie Street, in close proximity to B.C. Place Stadium and Rogers Arena, the Fanny Bay Oyster Bar will pour the Stout during brunch, lunch, dinner, and will feature it during their Happy Hour and Late Night Happy Hour.
Along with pouring at Fanny Bay Oyster Bar and select craft beer locations, Postmark has designed a custom west coast themed label that will sell through private retail locations in BC as well as the Postmark retail store.
