Man has always been sure of two things:
- Beer can make almost anything taste better
- Bacon tastes delicious
So I figured:
WHY NOT TRY BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER?
Thus was born The Great Bacon Exbeeriment
Such an extreme task could not be accomplished alone, so I enlisted the help of two of my friends. The experiment would consist of:
Each bacon was allowed to marinate in a different beer for 3 hours. To avoid beer flavors mixing, the pan was cleaned after every combination. The bacon combinations were cooked from lightest to darkest to avoid drastic brew changes.
And now…The Great Bacon Exbeeriment
Me: Kinda bland…very little flavor
Sophie: No taste – hint of beer
Paul: Interesting. No real taste
Me: More flavor than the Hefeweizen. Swiss cheesy.
Sophie: More flavor to it. Bitter, cheese-like flavor.
Paul: Tastes like cheese!
Pale Bock Lager
Me: Very flavorful and sweet, almost like a microbrew.
Sophie: Acquired taste. Bitter cheese
Paul: Sugar cheese
Me: Tastes just like maple sugar bacon, with a very light beer aftertaste
Sophie: Tastes like bacon should. Perfect.
Paul: Deliciousness. Honey becomes strong
Me: Sweet and rich, but almost sickeningly so.
Sophie: A little bitter for me.
Paul: Really sweet.
Me: If Heaven was bacon and beer, this would be it. Perfect!
Sophie: Bravo! (Almost) perfect.
Paul: Oh my god! So different, so good.
Sophie: Honey Brown
Paul: Honey Brown
