There's no way that this cannot be good.....

Uncommon Brewers: Organic Bacon Brown Ale

Yes, this is a meat beer. The Santa Cruz, Calif., brewery chucks in hunks of applewood-cured pork into the process to give this sweet brown ale a smoky, meaty taste. "I enjoy bacon and I thought using a nut brown would be the way to do it," said brewmaster and founder Alec Stefansky. Stefansky developed the beer with fellow brewer Reed VanderSchaaf as a companion to yet another strange brew, the Rubidus Red Ale. They weren't pouring it at the festival, but Stefansky said the latter was made with candy cap mushrooms, which grow wild in their area and give off notes of maple. The best part, he said, is that if you drink a few pints at night, then in the morning, you smell like maple syrup -- with the bacon beer, it's a complete meal experience.



  1. Oh, my. It's like a nexus of awesome!

  2. It certainly has to be...I've got to find a way and get a bottle of this. I'm also looking for bacon jerky.... which as far as I know is only made by a company out in California.

  3. Um, yeah, the organic part is good.

    Honey Brown Lager, yo.

  4. All you need to go with that beer is a glass of maple porter, some coffee flavored beer and you've got breakfast!

  5. Holy mother of god that is disgusting and awesome.
