Oyster stout was the traditional seafood beer in the 18<sup>th</sup> century when regular stouts were accompanied by oysters in local taverns and pubs. Later, oysters were incorporated into the brewing process which was first documented in the 1930s. That’s what we call “oyster stout” today. It fell out of fashion for a few decades but as craft beers become increasingly popular in New England, several brands are coming out with their own take. Harpoon did an oyster stout a few years ago and, last year, Dogfish Head made a very bitter chocolate lobster beer.</p><p> Mon, 03 Jun 2013 10:45:00 +0000 Ryan Lessard 28597 at http://nhpr.org N.H.'s Own Lobster Beer
