Wines to pair with bacon:  
Quadrum– The soft and fruity qualities compliment the saltiness of bacon, plus grenache’s natural acidity goes with bacon fattiness.


2010 Domaine de Piaugier Cotes du Rhone Villages Sablet– This non-agressive grenache is the perfect match to any bacon dish with it’s peppery and brawny finish.



Beers to pair with bacon:
Schlenkerla Eiche– This Doppelbock is smoked over oak and is perfect for any bacon pairing because it’s as subtle as smoke gets with these beers.  


Olvisholt Brugghus Lava Smoked Imperial Stout– Binny’s beer buyer, Pat Brophy compared this beer to covering bacon in maple syrup. Yeah, you’ll just have to take our word on this one… it’s good.



We’re just going to leave this here…
Bacon Cheese Soup made with Stone’s Arrogant Bastard Ale. It’s everything.
