Back to all posts

The Gulf Shores and Orange Beach areas have something going on every weekend of the fall. There is plenty of reason to come down for an Orange Beach vacation at Seachase and enjoy the great fall weather, beautiful beaches, and fun with new friends! One of our favorite events of the year is the Hangout Oyster Cook Off and Craft Beer Weekend, Nov. 3-4th!


The Hangout Oyster Cook-Off & Craft Beer Weekend showcases the talents and tastes of the best chefs from the Southeast for a decadent afternoon of oysters and spirits on the beach in beautiful Gulf Shores. At the Bloody Mary Invitational some of the Southeast’s best mixologists will compete for the best Bloody Mary. Don’t want to compete? No problem! There will be plenty of opportunities to taste!


We are pleased to have numerous authors and James Beard Award nominees visiting our beach oasis. Make sure you attend a workshop or get a book autographed and sharpen your culinary skills with fun and informative cooking demos throughout the day. Catch all the football action with our Best Tasting Tailgate tents where you can watch SEC Football games on big screen TVs.


The Craft Beer Festival on Friday, November 3, offers dozens of craft beers available from breweries such as Oskar Blues, Good People, Abita, Big Beach Brewing, Kona Brewing and more. This all-inclusive event features a souvenir cup, unlimited craft beer tastings and live music. Plus, craft cocktails, Champagne, and Bloody Marys will be featured throughout the day to help wash the oysters down.


On Saturday, November 4, stop by the North American Oyster Showcase and sample oysters flown in from Pacific Northwest, New England, the Maritimes, British Columbia, the Mid-Atlantic, Baja Peninsula and right here from the Gulf Coast. Shucking oysters is truly an art. At the Shucking Contest watch along as restaurants compete for the title of fastest oyster shucker.


Seachase provides a great place to relax and hangout on any weekend in the Orange Beach area. Come down this Fall and enjoy some great seafood, shopping, recreation, and an all around great time!
