I grew up on oysters and the likes. Living where I do that was good poor folk food!
I love oysters about any way you can serve them.
Raw, stew, pan fried, put them on the BBQ in the shell and wait for them to pop open, put some water in the bottom of a large pot ( beer keg ) and steam them open.
The last was the most common way of having them when I was a youngster. Me and a buddy worked out in the oysters and we would regularly take a bushel home, steam them and drink beer. MMMMMMM....
When I read the title of the thread I thought it was going to be an oyster beer! That could be good also.

Unfortunately, I developed a shellfish allergy ten years ago or so. My favorite food is oysters, I live where they are plentiful, my brother has a shellfish business with steamer clams and oysters and I can't eat any!

Only use the shell??
Must be dirty shells and they are getting residual oystery bits.
The shell is calcium. No flavor other than the muddy flavors that absorb into the outside.
There used to be a place that ground them up to be used as calcium supplements up the road from me.
I know they still sell it some places.

I think an oyster ale could be good. You would just have to figure out how much oyster to use so that it wasn't over powering.
You could drop some oysters in the boil, then eat them!
Mmmmm.....

They just seemed a little salty to me (i think marstons only use the shells). And there is very good examples of good oyster stouts made with real oyster (the whole thing) like the ones brewed by porterhouse.

A recipe with stout an oyster (not a beer recipe a snack recipe):
open the oyster remove it from shell, reserve the oyster water and shell, wrap the oyster in bacon, put a toothpick to hold the bacon there,
grill for very little time the bacon wrap oyster, reserve.
In a pan caramelize a little onion well chopped, combine a little bit of stout the oyster water, pute in the pan ans reduce a little bit, season your sauce put your previously grilled oyster in the pan, heat for 1 minute.
You can serve in the original shell put the oyster in the center and put sauce and onion on top.
Voila.
