It's more likely than you might think.

I don't know if it's worth it to have high hopes for this, but I can definitely say that I'm interested to try it.

I would try it! This quote is pretty good:

very cool concept with the beer the bread and the milk full circle
. I imagine the bacon Beer would be similar to Schlenkerla Marzen. Very Smokey Rauchbier. The intense smokey almost speaks bacon.

I know a guy who homebrews a bacon smoked porter regularly. It has real bacon in it.

i saw on dinners driveins and dives one time,
this joint took some nice kentucky bourbon like makers mark or wild turkey
and they would fry up some bacon and pore the clean grease in to a mason jar when it had cooled some but still very liqud, they would pour the Whiskey on top of the bacon fat. after it sat out for a few hours to exstract the smoke and bacon taste the jar would be placed in the frezer. in an hour or so the fat would form in to a hard puck on top of the Whiskey , then two hole where poked thought the puck and the Whiskey was decanted back in to its bottle.

Guy very relucatantly took a shot with the owner
and afterward said it was suprizingly good but really wierd too.

Haven't tried it yet because he lives on the other side of the country. Although now that you mention it I might do a swap with him.
