One Great Plate: Stout & Oysters

One Great Plate: Stout & Oysters

Black beer and bivalves are a match made in heaven. If you haven’t had the pleasure, please report directly to your local oyster bar. This is not a new marketing gig, a hipster invention--it’s a damn fact. So sayeth the British Prime Minister in 1837: “I dined or rather supped at the Carlton with a large party off oysters, Guinness and broiled bones, and got to bed at half-past twelve. Thus ended the most remarkable day hitherto of my life.” There’s something about the salty metallic brine of an oyster balanced with the roasty malted bitterness of a stout that creates a true and beautiful complex mouth moment. Give it a shot at Oceanaire with a tap of Guinness and the happy hour trio of oysters for $6. Or hit up The Lowry for a tin of slipperies with a nice round of stout on taps including Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Or go DIY by picking up a dozen from your market or co-op and dabbling with either Liftbridge Silhouette Imperial Stout or Irish Coffee Stout.
