Our beer and oyster fest is back for a third year, bigger than before and in a new location! Join us on Sunday, September 17 from 4-7pm at the Lighthouse Point Park Carousel. This fun tasting event brings together the bounty of the land and sea to celebrate the success of another great season!

Come savor Norm Bloom's Copps Island Oysters and sample a growing selection of local beer, including Back East Brewery, Black Hog, Brenner Brothers' Brewery, Firefly Hollow, Hanging Hills, No Worries, Stony Creek and more!

This family-friendly event also features music from Stacy Phillips and His Bluegrass Characters, and the Lighthouse Point Carousel will be running and available for rides!

And new this year is an informative and interactive tasting experience: sit along the shore of Long Island Sound and enjoy an exclusive selection of drinks hand-picked to complement a dozen freshly shucked oysters. You'll learn about the local oyster industry and the flavor profiles of local varieties, as well as how to pair oysters with popular libations. Our VIP guests speakers include the wine experts from The Wine Thief and founder of Armada Brewing Company Johnny Kraszewski.
