It has been done. Can't speak to the taste from personal experience. Working on a diy essential oil distillation setup so I can.

I am also interested in this. I was thinking a bacon bourbon porter might be tasty. Or bacon anything.

Don't know... I've not tried putting bacon into any of my brews yet... Not sure how long it will be before I do either. I'm working on more traditional flavor elements first... One day I'm sure I'll get around to bacon though... Doesn't everyone?

I'd thought of using something bacon flavored that didn't have oil. Like imitation bacon bits or something like that.

How about bacon infused vodka? Basically the same thing as when they do it to bourbon, just vodka instead...

There was an issue of BYO a while ago that covered "breakfast beers", including a bacon beer.

Personally, I use Weyermann smoked malt (maybe with a touch of Briess cherrywood smoked malt for complexity) instead of meat to achieve a similar effect.

Don't know if she'll see this thread or not, but a friend/fellow HBT member actually made a bacon beer a few months ago and gave me a bottle. I believe it was a brown ale that she'd "dry hogged" (!) with a couple pounds of cooked bacon.

I must say, it was pretty interesting, but I'm not sure if I'd want 5 gallons of it (I think the brewer felt the same way). It smelled delicious - just like bacon - and the bacon taste definitely came through. But the "dry hogging" definitely screws with the carbonation, head retention and mouth feel, so it ended up being a little undercarbed and a lot over-slick.

Overall, it was impressively made, and a super cool idea, but it'd be hard to drink more than one bottle at a time, IMO.
