No thanks. In my experience, the beer just ends up tasting salty. Maple, on the other hand, is delicious in a porter or stout and can pair well with other bacon offerings.

With a name like HogsBack, I'm guessing this isn't the belly bacon that (US) Americans know and love.

So, with a US audience in mind might I suggest changing the headline to "Canadian beer: Now with more ham?"

Ham flavored beer? No thanks.

If you're not tired of the bacon flavored things, you're not paying enough attention to the world around you.

Bacon? How refreshingly original. Find a way to work zombies or ninjas into it, and my eyes will likely roll right out of my head.

I'll pass on the beer - but I'd kill for a T-shirt with " Aporkalypse Now Oatmeal Bacon Stout" on it.

We need more meat beer.

If you ever come across a bottle of Stone's "Voodoo Doughnut" which has bacon flavor in it, put it back on the shelf.

Go lick a curb and try not to vomit.  It's the same experience and I will have just saved you seven bucks.

The Labatt's brewery is upriver from Montreal.  The Molson brewery is downriver from Montreal.

/just sayin', eh

Hogsback is the name of the brewery, not the beer.

Meh, it's already been done, and with maple syrup.

Honestly, enough with the faux bacon taste in everything.  It just turns out to be added salt and smoke taste to whatever it is added to, even if there is "real bacon" in it.  I love the taste of bacon, and when I want that taste, I will eat real bacon, not eat fake bacon mayonnaise, or bacon salt, or bacon cupcakes, or bacon cheese, or drink bacon flavoured beer, vodak, water, soda, or anything else.  It all sucks, especially when I can eat the real thing almost whenever I choose.


The absolute worst bacon flavoured thing on the planet is these bacon flavoured alka seltzer tablets my friends got me, because apparently I "really like bacon."  farking most horrible thing I have ever put in my mouth.  But hey, it's BACON!1!!ONE!!

It looks like a bottle of Pepto-Bismol. Why on earth would anyone drink such a thing?

I'm sure I have no idea.  Since it's a combination of two trendy Oregon businesses, Voodoo Doughnut and Rogue Ales, all the local shops made a big fuss about it and I couldn't help but notice the displays everywhere when it came out.  Fortunately, I think it was a limited time thing that bombed so hopefully they won't be making this atrocity again.

Yep. It's f*cking awful.

Went to a pub in Ottawa on Tuesday, the manager was drinking it, he got it in a bottle from somewhere (so he had it in a pint glass, since the pub we were in didn't serve it).

He said it tasted a bit "young", and wasn't refined enough.

Gave up on humanity shortly after.
 
2013-02-07 01:37:48 PM  
Since it's Canadian, it's probably back bacon and not real bacon.
 
2013-02-07 01:42:33 PM  
The whole bacon flavoring craze is getting as tiresome as steampunk. If you really want bacon, go pick up the frying pan.

You're being too kind.

As a homebrewer I would suggest that someone should have been taken out and beaten savagely for letting this get anywhere past the testing phase.  Even from the smell you could tell it was just dreadful.
 
2013-02-07 01:45:21 PM  
Rogue Voodoo Doughnut tastes pretty much like you'd expect a beer named after pastry to taste.  Some kinda weird beer.

FTFY.

The only bacon beer that's palatable (and it's pretty good!):

That's right.  My bad.

As a homebrewer I like the idea of combining flavors and a Porter I think would be perfect for that sort of thing.  But after going with Maple I don't think I would have gone much further.

The bottle's pink, the beer isn't.

I liked it.

And I don't recall hearing it bombed... From what I recall it goes pretty quickly once it hits the stores (AFAIK Rogue brews it in cycles).

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.
 
2013-02-07 02:16:56 PM  
Won't be drinking this, but I have tried bacon from their local supplier, Pork of Yore, and it is excellent. All heritage pigs.
 
2013-02-07 02:32:41 PM  
Two things that are great separately are not automatically great together. I love (American) bacon. I love beer. I have no desire to drink bacon beer. I love pumpkin pie. I love hot mustard. The two should not be combined. I love my Nanna. I love screaming hot monkey sex. Not together, though. I love screaming hot monkey sex. I love chocolate pudding. Sepa... no wait. Bad example. Those two actually go really well together.

As novelty beers go, it's actually worse than the pizza beer, which is impressive.

Seriously, bacon in a beer is stupid.  If you want that smoky flavor, use smoked malts.  Age an imperial smoked porter in used maple syrup aging barrels and you've really got something.

Hmmm.  My source (homebrewer husband) must be biased.

Bacon has jumped the damn shark! Can we please stop pretending it makes everything better?

Damn you Jim Gaffigan! See what you've created?

Stone?  I thought it was Rogue.

They're both doing some interesting things with strong flavors in beers, but the more southerly one focuses on ingredients that naturally belong in beer (like hops and malt) and the more northerly one on those that don't (like bacon and vanilla).

The brewery is named after Hog's Back Falls in Ottawa, Canada. It's one of the better regional breweries around here.

Belly Bacon. Back bacon isn't common in Canada, despite what Bob and Doug would have you believe.
 
2013-02-07 03:34:13 PM  
I've always thought that peameal bacon was the closest thing to a true Canadian bacon. If I'm wrong that's fine with me I'll keep on it eating it.

Can I offer you some Cock ale?

Oh.  Canadian bacon.  Call me when it's actual bacon

lesson for our southern neighbours:
What US says    What Canada says
Bacon Bacon
Canadian Bacon Back Bacon

Its a trap! The canuks call ham bacon

Faux Bacon land! Your home and native land
Weird dishes like poutine at your command
With clogging hearts, we see thee rise
The true north, fat and happy
from pants so wide Faux Bacon land
We stand on guard for thee
God get me a Tim Horton's and coffee
FAUX BACON LAND get me Tim Horton's and coffee
FAUX BACON LAND get me Tim Horton's and coffee
