Blog : Beer & Oyster Party at the Franklin Oyster House

By Sam Lane | Aug 6, 2015 | in

Tonight, August 6, at 5:30 p.m. the Franklin Oyster House welcomes all to join them for the Beer and Oyster Party. If you care to start things off with a drink you’re in luck, as there will be six 5-ounce beer samples from Smuttynose Brewing Company and Great Rhythm Brewing Company. Some of the brews included are Smuttlabs' Cherry Short Weisse and Oak Tripel, Smuttynose's Vunderbar Pilsner and Great Rhythm Resonation Pale Ale. Each beer will be paired with a variety of six locally sourced oysters. The pairings cost $34, but jump on the opportunity quick as there is only standing room available. During the event WXGR 103.5 will provide music to accompany the good eats.

As any local beer drinker would tell you, Smuttynose brews some of the top beers in New England. Active at fun, local events such as the Beer and Oyster party, Smuttynose makes a tremendous effort to be involved lsocially, as well as consciously. At their new sustainable and eco-friendly facility in Hampton, NH, you can find the Smuttynose staff brewing locally prized craft beers such as the ever so secret Smuttlab brews and old favorites like Old Brown Dog Ale and Bouncy House IPA.

The Hampton facilities are positioned to receive the most natural sunlight as possible, along with solar tubes and an on-demand LED light systems. The newly installed air compression systems are stocked with VFDs, cutting down on motor speed on pumps, process, packaging and HVAC equipment to help cut down on energy expenses. Much of the stone and wood used to build the new facilities are repurposed or recycled. The facility is registered for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifiication, setting it's energy consumption apart from other breweries while reducing its carbon footprint.

The Franklin Oyster House is located at 148 Fleet Street in Portsmouth, NH. For further information, call 603.373.8500.
