HOGSBACK BREWING COMPANY introduces limited edition Bacon Beer. CAIR-Canada’s Litigation Jihadists are frantically searching for a way to have this charged as an ‘Islamophobic’ hate crime and will probably demand that the company stop selling it immediately.
SUN News (h/t Susan K) Ottawa’s Hogsback Brewing Company has officially launched ‘Aporkalypse Now’ Oatmeal Bacon Stout — a limited-edition beer featuring bacon made from Canadian pork. The unique beer combines two tastes North Americans love: Bacon and beer.
“This proves it. Everything tastes better with bacon, even great tasting beer,” the company said in a statement. “Blending roasted malt and oatmeal, this smooth, dark beer has a sweet caramel aroma and a rich and creamy unbridled taste that comes from a unique infusion of local bacon.”
The bacon part of the bacon beer comes from Pork of Yore, a pig farm about 100 km west of Ottawa, “and the bacon produced there is second to none.” HogsBack will launch its breakfast brew Friday at Ottawa’s Heart and Crown pub and Saturday at Toronto’s The Only Cafe.
Aporkalypse Now is a limited-edition beer, available at select locations, on draft, during February only.
The company’s website has this to say about their “Aporkalypse Now” beer:
Look into the heart of darkness of this pitch black beauty. Take in the sweet caramel and roasted malty notes on the nose with a suggestion of the bacon goodness within. This full-bodied, rich and creamy oatmeal stout trots out a bold, unbridled taste that comes from a unique infusion of local Ottawa Valley heritage-raised “Pork of Yore” fine bacon. Blending in roasted malt and oatmeal for a solid footing, this smooth, dark beer has the perfect finish hinting of the fine swine contained within.
Over 13kg of
Pork of Yore’ fine bacon was used for every 780 litre batch brewed — and was fried up personally by the owners of the brewery.
Wondering what bacon beer tastes like? You’ll need to hurry to find out. This limited-edition bacon beer is only available throughout the month of February on tap at select Ottawa restaurants and pubs. Rogue Brewery also offers a bacon beer called “Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale” featuring applewood-smoked bacon and maple flavoring. The company’s suggested food pairing for the beer? Doughnuts and pork.
