Jax Fish House and Cinder Block Brewery collaboration Oyster Stout taps for second consecutive year on Feb. 28 for Mardi Gras celebration
Celebration will also feature 3 special dishes from Chef de Cuisine Theresia Ota with custom drink pairings from Restless Spirits Distilling
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Feb. 20, 2017) – Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar is teaming up with Cinder Block Brewery for the second consecutive year to bring the duo’s collaboration Emersum Oyster Stout back to Kansas City just in time for Mardi Gras celebrations. The stout is brewed with six dozen of Jax’s proprietary and wholly sustainable Emersum Oysters, which add a natural minerality and create a rich texture to the beer. The Emersum Oyster Stout will tap on Mardi Gras, Feb. 28 at Jax and will pour exclusively through the month of March, Jax’s proclaimed Oyster Month, or until the keg runs dry.
In addition to the tapping of the oyster stout, Jax Fish House Chef de Cuisine Theresia Ota will offer three special dish and drink pairings for Mardi Gras on Tuesday, Feb. 28. Dishes include Fat Tuesday classics like beignets and a crawfish boil and are each paired with a full-size drink. Kansas City's own Builders Gin from Restless Spirits Distilling will be featured in one pairing cocktail, and a new Cherry Cider from Cinder Block Brewery as another. Jax will also offer its own 24-ounce Jax Hurricane, served in a Bourbon Street-inspired souvenir yard cup.
Jax will offer all three specials with drink pairings and the Jax Hurricane all night on Feb. 28 starting at 4 p.m.
