Went to a Bacon & Beer tasting at Jimmy's No 43 last night with Dens, Heather D, and some of her friends. It was pretty awesome. We had six kinds of bacon starting with plain old Oscar Meyer (the control bacon) and working our way through salty, sweet, porky, and ended with a Berkshire Pork Bacon from R.U.B.. There were also six kinds of artisanal beers my favorite of which was a chestnut beer from Italy which is, according to the guy who picked out the beers, the most exciting beer country in the world these days. Who knew? Dens, helpfully, took a picture of the menu with some notes he took.
Afterwards, since we were all salted up, a couple of us walked over to Hearth for some dessert and a nice glass of port to finish the evening.
The next tasting @ Jimmy's is a pickle tasting in early December. Not as exciting as bacon, but possibly worth going to?
