So, I'm into this whole bacon thing with Sue because, well, bacon is a staple of my diet.
I was having a suprisingly non-bacon lunch with my buddy EJ, and he mentioned he'd tried some bacon beer during a recent whale-watching excursion up north. Got me curious. (EJ suggested that bacon beer is what happens when you run normal beer through a "bacon filter." While I'm skeptical, I'm not ruling it out.)
A quick Googleskim seems to indicate bacon beer is more of an Oktoberfestian beverage. Suggestions include washing down a slice of bacon apple pie with some bacony fermented beverage(s).
Fakin' bacon? This item is for you vegheads.
Never miss a local story.
As for EJ's bacon beer experience, he informs it took place at the San Juan Brewing Company in Friday Harbor. Looks like the company bar is known as the Front Street Alehouse.
A quick check of the menu didn't turn up any beverages. But excuse me while I go all Elvis Presley on you and suggest that the restaurant add some bacony goodness to its Peanut Butter and M&M Sandwich on French Bread. Defib, STAT!
Are there any bacon beers closer to home?
