Have you ever considered beer for breakfast? Okay, gotta be honest...the last time I had beer for breakfast, I was living in the Pi Kappa Phi house at Iowa State. Well, Waffle House has teamed up with Oconee Brewing Company to produce a new bacon-infused beer that delivers the aroma bacon flavor you love, with a little boozy kick.
Dubbed Bacon & Kegs, the beer is a 6.5% ABV red ale and described as having a malty character enhanced with “salty, savory, and smoky bacon extract.” And we’re not just making up the breakfast part – Oconee says that’s kind of the point. "Bacon & Kegs pairs well with breakfast food items,” the company says in a statement. “[It can also] be enjoyed as a stand-alone, soon to be iconic beer."
Want some? The beer will be sold initially in six-packs or on draft at Oconee Brewing Company beginning December 18th. You’ll also be able to find it at the Waffle House at SunTrust Park – home of the Atlanta Braves – the only Waffle House in the country that sells beer.
