A Brooklyn, N.Y., brewery has created what might simply be known as man’s perfect drink: Bacon Beer. Let’s break this down. You’ve got beer. It’s good. You’ve got bacon. Exceptionally good. Putting the two together? Probably one of the greatest moves for the betterment of mankind. There’s just one problem: You’re likely never going to be able to drink it. Such a small amount of the beer was made, commercial distribution is not possible. Why was only a limited batch brewed? Apparently, Bacon Beer is quite hard to make. Read this description from the brewmaster:
“The technique we used — which comes originally out of the perfume industry — involves transferring an aroma from a fat to a liquid without actually transferring the fat itself. Then to completely remove the fat and have none left in the liquid, it was very tricky.”
Yes, sounds tricky, indeed. So who will get to drink the beer? Well, mainly people in New York who can afford $350-a-plate fundraisers at trendy restaurants. Damn them. On a good note, the brewmaster confirmed he’s open to finding a simpler way of brewing Bacon Beer. If we can put a man on the moon and a 60-yard TV screen over a football field, we can make this beer! Until then, I’ll have to settle for a cold brew and a nice bacon, bacon and bacon sandwich.
