So the question is which was first, oysters in beer or beer with oysters?
However, there’s no doubt that dark beers and oysters have a history. In the United Kingdom the porters, or the workers carried things for a living, had two staples in their diet, beer and seafood.
The most popular beer drank buy the porters was named after them. The cheapest most common seafood was then paired with their beer, oysters. The Porterhouse steak is also named after the cut of meat served at the restaurants that catered to the porters.
Porterhouse is also a Dublin tourist attraction and a grab place to grab a pint. Located in the historic bar and tourist area of Temple Bar, it’s a great place to sample Irish micro-brew.
I bought this at the Pangaea Bottle Shop for $4.99. It has an ABV of 5.2%.
