brooklyn Proving that more than just indie rock and hipsters come out of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Brewery is creating bacon infused beer. The inspiration for the brew is the German beer called Rauchbier or “smoked beer”, which is said to taste a lot like bacon. Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster, has come up with what he thinks will create the best bacon beer, combining fat washing and smoked malts.

I couldn’t find any office information about the beer other than this blog post on their website, but the internet meme creators are going crazy over this. They are reporting that Garrett is planning to use malts that are smoked in the same room as bacon, thus creating malts that smell just like bacon. They say he has also infused brown ale with bacon using the fat washing method and is aging it in bourbon barrels. He will then blend the beer and the malts to create the first ever Bacon Beer!

Garrett says, “Either this will be the most amazingly disgusting thing you’ve ever tasted in your life. Or I shall rule the earth.”

I hope for bacon/beer lovers everywhere that this beer will rule the earth. I have had beer from Brooklyn Brewery before and they all have been pretty good, so I think this experiment is in good hands. I hope they invite me to the party when they make this stuff. I really can’t wait to try it, even if they say it’s horrible.

Lastly, if I were to make bacon beer this is how I would do it.

    Thanks!!!

    I just sent them an email begging to get some… so if that works I will do the same. It would be a great reason to have me on your show ;)

    Fingers are crossed.

    Ben – you *should* sell your firstborn. I had BB’s Bacon Beer at the Per Se beer pairing dinner on Friday. It is smooth and smoky and flavorful and elegantly crafted. I even snagged other people’s Bacon Beer who didn’t finish theirs LOL. We also tried Brooklyn Brewery’s new Manhattan Project beer (a rye brew inspired by rye-based Manhattan cocktails). Also delicious!
