It wasn’t long ago when liquor stores carried five or six different beers. A couple of U.S. heavy hitters and maybe an import or two. Times have changed. Walk into your local booze shop now, and you’ll be greeted with shelves of interesting brews. So how do you decide what to drink? While there are countless beer styles, we choose a handful of popular ones and decided to help for when you’re trying to pick a beer for the day.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
