J. Wakefield's Raw Oyster Beer Shots (Video)
There were lots of shenanigans to be had, as well as beers, at the Palm Beach Craft Beer Festival Saturday. Perhaps the most bold was J.Wakefield Brewing's new move: oyster beer shots.

Are we kidding? No. This is serious business. There is something to be said for sticking raw seafood in alcoholic drinks and downing them in one gulp. Anyone who knows about beer and food pairings knows that raw oysters pair excellent with stout, but actually IN stout?
J.Wakefield's oyster stout is already brewed with freshly-shucked oysters, so adding the raw oyster to a shot of stout is simply complimenting something that already tastes delicious. Chewing is optional.
While beer vendors unleashed their taps upon the thirsty crowd during Saturday afternoon, reps from Gold Coast Beverage Distributors were maintaining a steady flow of freshly shucked oysters to the J. Wakefield Brewing tent. Then this happened.
