Does Oyster Stout Have Real Oysters?

Wondering, like I did, whether Oyster Stout has actual oysters in the recipe or it’s just a name, here’s the answer.

Does Oyster Stout Have Real Oysters?

As I opened my Big Rock variety pack with all these awesome limited release beers, I pulled out an oyster stout. With several friends and family members, including myself, not being allowed to have seafood, I began to wonder…

Does Oyster Stout have actual oysters in it or is it just a name?

The answer is YES!

Different companies vary on how they use the oysters some use the whole animal and some just the shell, but oyster stout does have actual oysters in the recipe, so I guess my husband will be happy because that means those ones are all his.
