Oyster Fest at Tribes in Tinley Park
September 17, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - September 19, 2015 @ 9:00 pm
Tribes Alehouse & Beer Company, one of Chicagoland’s premiere craft beer bars with a recently-opened brewery, is excited to host its 3rd Annual Oyster Fest on the patio of its Tinley Park location! Owner Niall Freyne was born in Galway, Ireland, home of the world’s oldest oyster fest: the Galway Oyster & Seafood Festival and he has brought this proud tradition to Chicagoland. Fresh oysters are flown in from the east and west coasts each day to ensure that only the freshest coldwater oysters are served. Freyne chooses eight different varieties to satisfy all oyster-loving taste buds. Throughout the event, a raw bar is set up at the front of the restaurant and guests can choose their oysters (between $2.25 -3.25 a piece depending on the variety, available ala carte, no minimum or maximum) and have their order zip-lined to be shucked on the spot by the Tribes crew. Homemade mignonette sauce (a traditional, spicy sauce made with shallots and vinegar) will be served with every order.
In addition to oysters, raw clams, stone crab and gigantic shrimp will be available. Seafood chowder, baked oyster bruschetta and drunken black mussels will also be on the Tribes menu, making this a spectacular seafood event!
Tribes hosts this fun, delicious event twice a year—the Mokena location in February and the Tinley Park location in September.
