Default Baco Crusted Wheat Beer

PETA Will be happy No Crustaceans where used in this beer.

Man you need to try this if you like bacos!!!

I ground the "Bits" version of bacos in my coffee grinder. Then used two saucers. One for the water dip and the other for the fine baco-grind.





Water dip then baco twist. Wa-lah .... This one is on a commercial wheat beer.

Srsly, I can't really imagine how those flavors go together. But I guess anything's possible!

Its a trial balloon for my hot smoked pepper wheat. I have been aching to try it for some time.

FWIW - I've been known to eat a whole jar of bacos when I'm half in the bag.


It also takes the funk out of this GI-312 Urban wheat. I'm fresh out of limes...

Its just my exuberance for baco-crusted wheat. No shrimp, crab or oysters. Do you disapprove or should I use a cooked shrimp as the garnish?

Yesterday - I was drinking this GI-312 with grapefruit slices. Somethin's afoul with this beer.

That's the other motivation. Bacos covers that aftertaste. I really think with smoked pepper beer it will be much better.

According to Garrett Oliver author of "The Brewmaster's Table", the perfect pairing for bacon is Bavarian weissbier or Belgian Wit. So this isn't too far off pairing-wise. I just gave it a closer pairing so to speak.

The use of crustacean is a bit misleading. For punishment I drink one of these w/o the crusting.

Sounds like two awesome ingredients that should never be mated in that way.

Now, a big BLT and an IPA would be good... on the side, of course.

Damn, I am hungry now.
