Your Beer And Bacon Pairing Guide For Baconfest 2014

Baconfest 2014 is rapidly approaching, are you ready for all the bacony goodness? You’ll be able to get all sorts of wild bacon concoctions, like bacon cupcakes and bacon ice cream. But do you know the finest beverage accompaniment when enjoying a strip or two of the good stuff?

Mmm…Beer! MMMM, MMMM, MMMM, Bacon!
No need to travel far and wide for a beer that “pours silky black with a creamy tan.” (That’s how the Founders Porter is described). Many “beeries” out there have ranked the best beer and bacon combos — Founders tops many of those lists.
When I stride over to NewBo on Saturday, September 20 for Baconfest 2014, it’ll wash down my endless bacon binge with a fine, quality domestic brew.
When you’re eating your bacon strips straight-up, go for a light beer, like a pilsner, or maybe even a hard cider to help cut the saltiness. If you like your bacon maple-cured try pairing with a moderately dark beer, like a porter.
Here’s my top 5 baco-tastic beverages:
  1. Old Style, brewed by Pabst Brewing Company
  2. No surprise then that my number two is ol’ fashioned PBR
  3. Miller-brewed Mickey’s Big Mouth
  4. Coors Light
  5. Rounding out my list is another Pabst beer — Blatz
Tip back one of those on September 20 and you’ll be just fine! Make sure to bring all your friends to the party, even you vegetarian friends can drink with us and enjoy the live music.
