Backfin Blue Crab Stout
We’ve brewed a lot of different beers as Ocean City’s oldest brewery, but this beer is extra special for us. For centuries people have been brewing stouts with oysters to promote clarity and enhance the beer’s sweet & roasty characteristics with the natural salinity of the oyster. We have now brewed the first known stout using live blue crabs in the boil to create one of the most unique beers in the world. Just like bakers use salt to bring out the sweetness in their desserts, the crabs and spice cause the toffee and chocolate notes to come to life in this beautiful stout. This is a beer that could only have been painstakingly handcrafted in our homemade microbrewery, located in the heart of an old crab house. WARNING: Contains Shellfish!
