Denver’s official oyster stout is now in the tanks. Hold tight because it will be just a couple more months until the brew is ready for consumption! Last week the fishmongers of Seattle Fish Co. took a welcomed field trip to local brewery, Denver Beer Co. Together, the teams made what will soon become a stout brewed with fresh oysters from Blue Island Oyster Company, hence the name: Blue Island Oyster Stout. Specifically, we used one of the company’s wild oyster varieties called “Naked Cowboys” after the infamous nearly-naked Times Square musician. Don’t miss the official launch party on the afternoon of April 25th at Denver Beer Co! We will turn the brewery into a oyster bar and tap the kegs….and who knows, maybe you will meet the man himself in his skivvies.
And if you think an Oyster Stout sounds strange, just wait until you have your first sip!
Our team of buyers at Seattle Fish Co. begin day their at 5am making calls to fishermen and farmers all over the world with one goal in mind: to source the highest quality seafood available for the Rocky Mountain region. Some may think being landlocked lends a disadvantage to us mountain-dwellers, but we believe just the opposite. Being centrally located in the United States gives us access to seafood from all over the world. Also, it doesn’t hurt that our processing plant is just minutes from DIA, the sixth busiest airport in the world by aircraft movements.
With all that said, our buyers know when to grab the newest and hottest items available in the seafood market on any given day. Our most recent offering to our chefs and customers is a quickly-crafted, yet easy to read “Weekly Catch Email”. Each e-mail (which is also mobile friendly!) will give you a quick snapshot of the week’s hottest items, along with pictures, pricing, and sourcing traceability. Want to be in-the-know? Let your Seattle Fish Co. rep. know you’re interested in getting the fishmonger’s weekly catch in your kitchen.
