I've always enjoyed a sweet/malty brew or brown ale with bacon, and a while ago Rogue brewing combined two of my loves with a Bacon Maple Ale

While not too bad, it wasn't as good as I expected. I still prefer drinking my beer with the bacon to snack along with it
ok you need to share where you get this bacon and pork roll. you know that only people from our area know about pork roll and it's awesomeness! can you imagine having pork roll in Disney???

My pork (and other meats) source is Ely's Pork Products

http://www.elyporkproducts.com/

They're not cheap, but when I want the good stuff that's usually where I go, and they're crazy friendly as well. Ely's is in the Washington's Crossing area of Bucks County near Yardley/Newtown.

I think pork roll's sphere of influence may be smaller than that of scrapple ... I don't know how the rest of the country would welcome pork roll but I sure prefer it over scrapple. Next time the RV ever makes it down to Fort Wilderness again, I'll need to remember to bring some along

OMG I just looked at their product list, I could spend a small fortune there!! it's so wrong to have that much stuff so close to me, it's right over the bridge from Mercer....I may be making a pilgrimage there....

I may have to hit that up too. I was just in Newtown at a friends house on NYE. I am amazed that you can only find pork roll in the Jersey/PA area. Nothing beats a porkroll and cheese sandwich for breakfast. I have never added bacon to it, but it can't hurt. Except for your cholesterol.

FWIW.... I live. I've been busy between work, Holidays, Baby, and everything else and just haven't had the time (or desire in the free time I did have) to hop on the DIS. Glad to see everyone is getting along just fine around here without me, and to all the newbies!

I hope everyone had a good holiday season.... and the post-holiday hangovers (physicial and financial) aren't too bad.

Some people were Banned, and then everyone apologised and everything was ok.
But it just brought to light that there was potential for some topics to get out of hand and needed to be someplace more private than a family board.

I dunno.... My one warning (and entire thread conversation deletion) came over in a Tag Fairy thread that also had a lot to do with Bacon. I think I had become desensitized thanks to this group.

Don't look at me. My hand-slap and conversation deletion came before I got my first tag.... which I had for a few hours before I ended up getting Boo-Boo'd.

....also noticing that my sparkly is now missing too after being gone for awhile....

I've not posted here in FOREVER, but I just thought I would drop by and say hey. I wasn't hugely active here before but y'all are fun and always entertained me, so yeah.

I'm currently experiencing the winter blues so I've been taking (multiple and prolonged) study breaks to come here and procrastinate

It's very fun. I popped over to Splitsville. I wanted to try their food. Heard that the sushi rivals Cali Grill. Will have pic if you guy want them.
