Oyster House Brewing Company
Oyster House Brewing Company creates quality craft beer in various styles, including their award winning “Moonstone Stout”, which is a special brew where oysters (shell and all) are included as an ingredient. You won’t get the actual taste of oysters from the beer, but it does provide hints of sea salt, calcium and other minerals that become part of the overall flavor. Oyster House Brewing Company, which also offers a full food menu, recently relocated to 625 Haywood Rd in West Asheville and upgraded to a 5 bbl brewhouse, 12 taps and 2 cask beer engines. Their beers are also available exclusively downtown at The Lobster Trap, which is where the brewery was originally founded by head brewer, Billy Klingel.
