Did someone say “Free Oysters”? Raw Bars are popping up at local breweries and I’m in love with it!
The Waterman opened their doors in 2018 and now they are popping up raw bars are local breweries! The first raw bar ever was at Red Clay Ciderworks, and it was a massive hit! Waterman was shucking free oysters until they ran out while people sipped some of the best ciders Charlotte has to offer. Within an hour the hard cider brewery filled out with a line out the door and they quickly ran out of oysters.

According to Alexis, the service and events manager with The Waterman’s, say they are dishing out the free oysters to get to know the neighborhood after opening just last year. The pop up raw bar craze will continue. The next pop up raw bar will be at Lenny Boy this Saturday 1/19/18 at 3pm with free oysters, live music and other vendors. Another pop up raw bar will be Sugar Creek Brewing this Sunday 1/20/18 at 4pm. If you attend, you may spot me slurping down oysters.
