Ottawa - Ottawa's HogsBack Brewing Company is launching Aporkalypse Now Oatmeal Bacon Stout — a limited-edition beer featuring bacon.
Ottawa brewery HogsBack Brewing Company is officially launching its "Aporkalypse Now" Oatmeal Bacon Stout beer tonight at an event being held from 5-8 pm at the Heart & Crown pub at 353B Preston Street.
The company's website has this to say about their "Aporkalypse Now" beer:
"Look into the heart of darkness of this pitch black beauty. Take in the sweet caramel and roasted malty notes on the nose with a suggestion of the bacon goodness within. This full-bodied, rich and creamy oatmeal stout trots out a bold, unbridled taste that comes from a unique infusion of local Ottawa Valley heritage-raised 'Pork of Yore' fine bacon."
Over 13kg of bacon was used for every 780 litre batch brewed — and was fried up personally by the owners of the brewery.
Wondering what bacon beer tastes like? You'll need to hurry to find out. This limited-edition bacon beer is only available throughout the month of February on tap at select Ottawa restaurants and pubs.
Rogue Brewery also offers a bacon beer called "Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale" featuring applewood-smoked bacon and maple flavoring. The company's suggested food pairing for the beer? Doughnuts and pork.
