Service Brewing Company (SBC), a veteran-owned and operated craft brewery based in Savannah, Georgia will release their new brew Lincoln’s Gift Oyster Stout with the Lincoln’s Gift Release Party on Friday, November 13 from 5:30-9 p.m.
This highly anticipated Winter Seasonal kick-off will include an evening of Savannah Street Eats food truck’s Oyster po’ boy sliders and DJ Mr. Snakes spinning his eclectic vinyl collection from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. In addition, a special R&D small batch of Chocolate Strawberry IPA will debut along with Service’s year round and specialty beers. The event also serves as the kickoff fundraiser for SBC’s winter charity, Stop Soldier Suicide, the first national civilian not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing active duty and Veteran suicide.
The Stout’s recognizable name stems from the infamous march of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman who torched most of the Confederate South on his 1864 March to the Sea. His swath of destruction met its end when he came upon the lovely city of Savannah, Georgia. Overcome by its beauty and bounty, tough old Sherman presented an unscathed Savannah to President Abraham Lincoln as a Christmas gift. Lincoln’s Gift is a sweet stout brewed with over 3000 locally harvested May River oysters, giving this traditional dark beer a slightly briny character.
Tickets for the launch are $25 and can be purchased in advance or at the door. They are limited and pre-purchase is highly suggested. Tickets will include entrance into the event, po’ boy sliders, a 36 oz of beer tasting, brewery tour and a souvenir 22 oz bottle of Lincoln’s Gift Oyster Stout.
