Lobster and beer may not be a pairing that immediately strikes you as a delicious combination, but Oxbow Brewing Company believes it’s one that America is ready for. Their Oxbow Saison dell’Aragosta special seasonal brew was made with live Maine lobsters suspended in boiling sweet wort, an infusion of malt and grain.


That's right, it's a lobster-infused beer.

“It’s about exactly the right amount we were going for,” Oxbow founder Tim Adams tells the Boston Globe. “There certainly is a salinity from the salt, and the lobster provides a touch of sweetness."

Want to try the fishy/malty combination for yourself? Adventurous drinkers can hit up any of these five bars for a taste. Call it dinner, and you've got yourself a cheap date.
