Tribes Beer Company, a brewery and craft beer bar with locations in Tinley Park and Mokena, brings back its Oyster Fest to the Mokena location on Thursday, February 22 through Saturday, February 24. Owner Niall Freyne, born in Galway, Ireland, home of the world's oldest oyster fest, has brought this proud tradition to Chicagoland and serves oysters flown in from the east and west coasts each day. Oyster Fest attendees will also be treated to an additional full raw bar of seafood delicacies including shrimp, clams and Kind crab legs. Seafood chowder, Oysters Rockefeller and more specials will also be on the Tribes menu.
For Oyster Fest, Freyne chooses eight different varieties to satisfy all oyster-loving taste buds. Throughout the event, a raw bar is set up and guests can choose their oysters (priced by the piece and available ala carte, no minimum or maximum) and have their order zip-lined to be shucked on the spot by the Tribes crew. Homemade cocktail sauce and homemade mignonette sauce (a traditional, spicy sauce made with shallots and vinegar) will be served with every order.Oyster Fest will take place each day from 3 p.m. - 9 p.m.
