Oysters and Beer

Oysters Page 1Oysters and Beer

He was a bold man that first ate an Oyster

Jonathan Swift

Trips to Ireland first triggered the idea that oysters and beer might go together and in Ireland the beer of choice is stout and the oysters I had were wild caught Irish Flats (Ostrea edulis) from Galway Bay.

Annually as August creeps to a close and the months start getting spelled with an "r" I develop a craving for oysters and begins sampling ouysters and beer. This year I re-read Patrick McMurray Consider the Oyster: A Shucker's Field Guide and learned first the the whole thing about not eating oysters in a month without an "r" in the spelling is BS and second that the flavor profiles for many oysters and beer styles, meads, ciders and sakes over lap, contrast or complement each other. Check out the links to oyster flavor wheels below. Lights went off: "Oysters - not just for stout anymore."
