Beer Fest.jpg

Join us for the debut of our Oyster & Beer Fest—the marquee event in our inaugural Oyster Week, itself a weeklong celebration of oysters hosted across both Block 15 locations as well as Caves Bier & Kitchen

Oyster & Beer Fest is a showcase of unique oysters sourced freshy fresh from coastal regions around the country, each paired with beer from standout breweries from the same region. Each oyster will be offered in a raw preparation that allows regions and species to demonstrate their unique character.

We'll also be grooving to live tunes from Gary Rowles and Chuck Holst from 5:30pm - 7:30pm on the Tap Room patio.
