Beer Description

It’s even harder to argue against making beer with oysters once the season hits in Charleston.

After pairing rich, roasty stout with oysters for years, enterprising European brewers started putting oysters in the beer in the early 20th century. Oysters impart a silky mouthfeel thanks to their protein-y-ness, and maybe a delightful hint of brine, to the Oyster Stout style.A bushel of succulent oysters harvested around Bowens Island were added to every 15 barrels of this beer, making it a truly local drinking experience. It’s particularly suited for that most Charleston of cool-weather food festivities: the oyster roast.
