Breakfast All Day











I attempt to avoid obvious bromides such as the phrase "comfort food" in this forum, yet sometimes it's simply inescapable. Whether it's homemade blueberry pancakes, instant grits or pork chops with eggs over-easy at Big Biscuit in Blue Springs, a plate of these basic foods calms me like nothing else in these trying times. In fact, given a choice between a Pale Ale or several slices of premium bacon, I'll opt for the latter.

    Bacon Beer
    Review found on the Beer Advocate web site:
    Brewed by:
    Front Street Ale House / San Juan Brewing
    Washington [state], United States
    Blurb from the Front Street Ale House menu:
    “Bacon…great! Beer…great! Now beer really can be for breakfast. Pale ale infused with lean bacon.”
    Say no more. I was intrigued, and decided to order a pint. Set in front of me was a glass of clear, brownish-golden ale with a decently retained, thin white head. The aroma reminded me of a breakfast at IHOP: maple syrup, smoked canadian bacon, and some biscuits. *drools*
    San Juan definately makes some interesting, experimental brews…see my review of their “Ale Diablo” pepper beer. In a similar vein, the flavor of Bacon Beer actually tasted like bacon (surprise, surprise). Also some saltiness, sweet maple notes, and a kiss of peppery hops. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but finished crisp and was nicely carbonated. Definitely an interesting try, and one I won’t soon forget. San Juan is an underrated brew-pub. Worth the Ferry trip to Friday Harbor.

    Ha ha. I've actually been to the San Juan Islands. It's my idea of heaven. Now I know that it IS heaven.
