Oyster Stout

A subtle taste of the ocean

ABV: 5.5%

Revival Stout is brewed in the British and Irish tradition of oyster stouts. Made with three thousand Chesapeake Bay oysters from War Shore Oyster Company, the oyster shells are steeped in the brewing water to add mineral content and then the oyster meat is added during the boil. The oysters add a subtle whiff of a sea breeze, a slight briny character and a smooth textural element to the beer.

Five percent of the sales of Revival Stout is donated to the Oyster Recovery Partnership to support their efforts to revive the oyster population in the Chesapeake Bay.
