Bacon bacon bacon bacon bacon. IT’S BACON! That’s right, bacon and beer, together at last. (We honestly don’t know what took us so long). This smoked red ale is a bold taste sensation that will drive you hog wild. It delivers the acutely addictive flavor and aroma of bacon in a beer that is savory yet refreshing and astonishingly drinkable.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Bacon not just for breakfast
This beer goes really good with a hamburger or steaks

Good beer
I would recommend this absolutely. The smoke can be tasted quite easily. But to get the bacon smell you need to drink from a glass as the smell is the only way I can detect the bacon.

If you love Bacon
I bottled this last weekend and those of us present passed around a glass of the beer before bottle conditioning. The smell seemed more like that of chocolate ice cream. The bacon taste is definitely present without being overbearing. Just a few steps above a hint of flavor. It's a fun novelty beer to keep around to impress your guests.

Pleasantly surprised
I wasn't quite sure what to expect but just the sound of it had my interest so I had to order it. Waited 2 1/2 weeks after bottling and was pleasantly surprised. The first sip seemed a little strong but it was also something that I wasn't used to tasting. It did mellowed out by the end of the glass. Everyone I gave this to (except the busch light drinker!) really like the flavor. I do suspect it will even be better with a little more age. Definitely will brew again for a special occasion.

If you like a subtly smoky flavored beer you have to try this one. Without a doubt this is the best I've brewed yet. I waited a month after bottling and the flavor is great. The reviewers that mention the strong smell at brewing are correct - but don't let that scare you away. I'm ordering another.

Wow! Outstanding!
More smokey and bacony than I expected, but that is not a bad thing. I kinda made it as a joke because I like bacon and I like beer, but this is really excellent.

Rich red, smokey, bacony, delicious! On my last bottle now and will have to order again.

Tasted my first bottle today. Dark brown color, nice head with good lacing. Deep smoke flavor, may be a bit over powering for some, but I liked it. My wife, who isn't a beer drinker at all, liked the taste of this. I really didn't taste any bacon flavor, unless the smoky flavor is in fact bacon. This beer would be great along side a smoked brisket or a smoked pork butt. I plan to use it in some baked beans, think it will add great flavor. This beer has been in the bottle for 4 weeks. I would make this again. I am going on a fishing trip next week and will get a critique from my fishing buddies.

Great beer and I added chipotle peppers
This is a great beer for any party. After I fermented the Bacon Smoked Red Ale I split the batch. 3 gallons went in to one carboy. The last 2 gallons went to another carboy, but I add 2 chipotle peppers. both turn out awesome. I will brew this beer again.

Great Kit!!!!
This is a great kit...........Just bottled today and the tasting is almost like drinking bacon if you let it breath a little first. After it ages and conditions some it ought to be just right...........I,m definitely going to re-order this one

Is it possible to get these recipes in 2.5 gallon kits?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe so , but it was a good kit , & the ingredients will all keep. You could split it into 2 batches, & experiment on your own. The vial of liquid bacon extract should be fine in the fridge , & the dry grains &, UME will last a long time. Get it & brew twice.
If I am going to keg can I just go to the keg and force carb immediately after fermentation is complete? Or does this brew need to condition for a bit?
S C on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I followed the instructions and as I recall a standard 1 week primary & 1 week secondary and then immediately kegged and force carbonated. Everyone loved the brew.

I have been unable to find it....what can one expect for the FG? I hit the OG...just looking for a target...thanks in advance.
Jeff V on Nov 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My FG hit at 1.010. I also did a yeast starter as well. Your mileage my vary :).
It seems the only issue that anyone has had with this brew is the over the top smoke....would it be advisable to cut that portion in half? Thanks in advance....
Jeff V on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That would be a totally individual taste and choice. I just received my second batch since the first one went quickly and probably one of my all time favorite beers just as it is. I do not think it is over the top smokey, hence, the reason I would propose it is simply individual preference.
