Maine brewer makes beer out of live lobsters, sea salt

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A Maine brewer is offering a quicker way to consume two of the state's summertime staples: beer & lobster.

Oxbow Brewing is serving up beer brewed with live Maine lobsters & a dash of sea salt.

Brewmaster Tim Adams says the lobsters were placed in a mesh bag & suspended in a kettle full of boiling wort during the brewing process. He says the lobsters add a subtle brininess & sweetness that lobster fans will recognize.

p>The beer is a saison (say-ZAHN')-style beer brewed in collaboration with a brewery in Parma, Italy. It is 4.5 percent alcohol by volume & is available on a limited basis. The beer is served in the brewery's tasting room.

Adams says the lobsters that were cooked in the brewing process were after eaten.
