The craft beers on tap are local from all around the Tampa Bay area. Are you a beer enthusiast? Or, a wanna be beer enthusiast? At Oak and Stone you're able to pour your own beer from the beer wall, and pay by the ounce, giving you the excuse to try all 58 until you discover your perfect one.
Beer specialists at Oak and Stone have paired their three desserts with local craft beers from the 'pour it yourself' beer wall.
Key lime pie is a signature dessert in Florida. Oak and Stone's pie, masters the art of a light, sweet and citrus flavor for a refreshing treat. A perfect pairing is the Key Lime Cider from 3 Daughter's Brewing located in Downtown St. Petersburg. The Key Lime Cider is a mix of an apple cider with a splash of key lime for that Floridian flavor. This pairing is ideal to cool you down and activate your sweet tooth on a hot summer day.
The Apple tort is a mini apple pie pastry, served with cinnamon ice cream and drizzled with caramel. There's nothing quite like a mix of warm, baked apples complemented with a cold scoop of ice cream for balance. Oak and Stone's Beer specialist recommends keeping that fun, fruity flavor activated from the warm apples by pairing it with the Mad Man Elderberry Cider from Two Henrys Brewing. This is a traditional hard apple cider blended with elderberry juice giving that mouth puckering, sweet taste.
This traditional vanilla bean custard cheesecake, topped with caramel and whipped cream is a great way to ace your sweet craving. A simple dessert calls for a simple beer pairing to calm the tastebuds. The beer specialist recommended the Bell Cow Nitro from JDub's Brewing Company. The chocolate porter is a flavorful sip of rich chocolate with a medium-bodied mouth feel that pairs great with the simplicity of a vanilla bean cheesecake.
