I know that oysters pair well with beer, especially on a warm summer eve, overlooking water of some sort, breeze wafting through your hair… I think my favorite beer to pair with them is Guinness. There’s just something about a nice, dry Irish stout that mingles well with the salty little buggers.
So yah, oysters paired with beer? I’m with you all the way! But oysters brewed IN beer? I’m a little skeptical.
If Flying Fish Brewing Co., has anything to say about it, I shouldn’t be! They’ve been brewing their Exit 1 Bayshore Oyster Stout for a while now. According to The Exit Series, “The creamy flavor of English chocolate and roasted malts harmonizes with minerals from the oyster shells. Irish ale yeast adds a bit of fruitiness and a dry crispness.” …Sounds pretty good to me, but I guess I’ll just have to try it myself and let you know.
If you’re a lover of stouts like me, I believe these are worth trying. Have you had beer brewed with oysters? Tell me about it!
