Oyster Wars 2019

For nearly a century, New England & Mid-Atlantic watermen competed for the abundant seabeds of the East Coast in hostile & violent skirmishes known as The Oyster Wars. Today, there’s no war, just a coming together of the finest oyster farms, best breweries & most talented chefs from New England to DC.

On Sunday, October 13th, please join The Salt Line and Other Half Brewing as we host an afternoon event showcasing the talents of some of the best chefs, breweries, and oyster farms spanning the Eastern Seaboard! Your ticket price includes oysters and tastings from the following chefs and oyster farms. Featured chef’s tastings will be served from 3-7PM, and a la carte brewery selections will be available via cash bar. VIP Ticket holders will gain admittance at 2PM – providing exclusive access to Oyster Farm and Chef tables as well as first access to beer offerings. VIP Ticket Holders will also receive a 2019 Oyster Wars commemorative tasting glass.

Festivities will continue on throughout the evening until the taps run dry.
