Fam's Brewing Co. on James Island hosts an oyster roast and beer release party (with a philanthropic bent) on Veterans Day Sun. Nov. 11. The party runs from 1 to 5 p.m. with a raffle, plus pop-up vendors Shred Season Surfboards and Apis Mercantile CBD Honey. Guests can sip on the Brewing Co.'s newest release, a rich yet light and easy drinking stout, the Sea Pearl Oyster, and feast on AYCE hot and salty bivalves.
The event raises money for local veteran nonprofit Warrior Surf Foundation
. The foundation, founded in 2015 on Folly by American combat veterans and surfers, works to assist with post-service transition, helping vets deal with challenges like PTSD, moral injury, and survivor's guilt. Warrior Surf hosts six-week surf camps that allow vets to overcome anxiety with social situations, crowds, and allows them to forge non-battlefield bonds.
Entrance to the roast and release is free, but for just $25 attendees get AYCE oysters plus one pint of the stout.
