Denizens and Hank’s Oyster Bar Make a Stout

Starting this Friday, November 29th, and going until the end of the year, all Hank’s Oyster Bar locations will be pouring Salty Wolfe Stout, brewed at Denizens with thirty-dozen freshly-shucked oysters added to the kettle.

That’s 360 of Hank’s Oyster Bar’s proprietary oysters in the brew, adding a bit of creaminess and umami minerality to the 5.1% alcohol-by-volume beer. Denizens’ Head Brewer Jeff Ramirez describes the beer as having “deep notes of bittersweet chocolate, smooth roast, and subtle dark cherry, laced with an underlying umami brine.”

Priced at $7 per pint, a portion of proceeds will benefit oyster recovery projects in the Chesapeake Bay. The DMV is no stranger to oyster stouts for a good cause, as Flying Dog’s ill-named offering also helps oyster recovery efforts in the Bay, and DC Brau has made both an oyster stout and an oyster saison, the latter may still be available at The Salt Line.

We’re told the Salty Wolfe Stout marks the first in a series of seasonal brews on which Denizens and Jamie Leeds Restaurant Group will collaborate over the next year.
