    It sounds interesting, and goes to show that yes, you can put ANYTHING in beer. We don’t get anything from flying fish around here, but if I make it east anytime soon I’ll check it out.

    I have to say, your last statement, “I’m pretty sure I’ll be the only one in Jersey to publicly say that, sorry Flying Fish, still love ya!,” is well stated. Gentle honesty in a critique lends credibility, and in my opinion, respect from the brewer. When someone tells me they don’t like one of my homebrews, it is much more of a help than a hinderance.

      Nate, Isn’t that a great thing about beer. Anything can go, while some may not like it, others will. Keeps it unique and fresh and us reviewers on our toes!

    It’s on tap @ The Copper Mine Pub, I need to try it

    I missed Exit 4, but enjoyed their Exit 11 beer, which was my introduction to Flying Fish. A great first impression.

    I’m on the fence on this one. The idea of oysters in beer seems more like a gimmick than anything, and I usually try to avoid such beers. But being a Jersey beer guy, it’s almost obligatory that I try this one. The problem is my wife won’t share with me, as she’s allergic to shellfish, so I’ll be stuck with the whole 22 ounces if I don’t like it.

    I guess we should have shared one, Peter!

      head over to the Coppermine and get it on draft, save yourself the 750ml, since you’re one the fence. I was wondering about the allergies too. My wife is also allergic to all seafood, but since the quantity of oysters is low and they are boiled would it be a problem???

    I’m not sure about the allergies, but I’m sure we’re not going to find out the hard way. 🙂

    My wife is a little OCD about this stuff, so even bringing the bottle into the house would probably give her anxiety.

    I dig this, big time. I’m always pulling for Jersey brewers, and this is my fave of the exit series so far. I may be a little biased toward black beers and big stouts, but I really think this one came together nicely.

    Sounds good! Oyster stouts are a traditional style in the UK– I’ve had some marvelous ones, in particular the one from Irish brewer Porterhouse has some really delish salinity in there.

    I’m on the fence w/ this one too. Kudos to Flying Fish for putting it out there though. (Liking the site redesign too TBW)
