Oyster Stout–The Real Deal!
Feb 16, 2010
Most so-called oyster stouts are simply smooth, creamy stouts that go well with oysters. But the original, of course, was brewed with bivalves to give it that extra creamy, aphrodisiacal head. Kudos to Island Creek Oysters and Harpoon Brewery for creating their brand new oyster stout, which, together with the Pemaquid Oyster Stout from Maine’s Marshall Wharf Brewing Company, are the first bonafide oyster stouts seen in these parts in many a decade. Harpoon’s offering is for a limited time, so get it while you can, or be at the Bluebird Tavern in Burlington, Vermont on February 28th to try some.
