Marooned On Hog Island Oyster Stout Release Tour Dec 6 & 7.

Printer-friendly version

When life gives you oysters, be sure to brew some killer oyster stout.

That’s exactly what Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founders of 21st Amendment Brewery did. In a food+beer collaboration with Hog Island Oyster Company co-founders John Finger and Terry Sawyer the team has created Marooned on Hog Island, the latest beer in '21A's' Insurrection Series, a limited edition, once-in-awhile four-pack release of a very special beer that rises up in revolt against common notions of what canned beer can be.

Marooned on Hog Island has an ABV of 7.9% and was brewed using Magnum and Willamette hops and top fermenting ale yeast, Pale Malt, 120L Crystal Malt, Rolled Oats, Carafa Malt, Chocolate Malt and White Wheat, along with the most special of ingredients: 450 pounds of Hog Island Sweetwater oyster shells.

       To fully appreciate the story of Marooned on Hog Island, one must view the four-pack carrier and can art. Designed by tbd, 21st Amendment’s agency, the carrier brings alive the tale of this fearless beer collaboration. Each panel of the carrier tells a chapter of the story sequentially through words and illustrations, replete with muskets, sharks, beer barrels and soggy escape artists. The top of the carrier depicts a bird’s eye view of Hog Island while the bottom of the carrier provides more of a fish’s eye view.
