Philadelphia, PA – In 2019, Bake'n Bacon became the talk of the food truck industry with its bacon-only menu. Bake'n Bacon, just days after announcing their new restaurant at 1148 S. 11th Street in Philadelphia, has announced that they will be partnering with a Philadelphia-based brand to produce a truly iconic item. A limited edition bacon-inspired beer brewed with Evil Genius Beer Company.
New Bacon Chocolate Strawberry Ale
Evil Genius Beer Co., founded in 2011, is known for its "Very Silly Names For Very Serious Beers." They are also well-known for their clever beer names, which often reference movie quotes or lyrics, funny memes, or timeless song lyrics. Philadelphia-based brewers were in the spotlight in the last few years thanks to significant collaborations with industry leaders like Auntie Anne's White Castle and Sheetz. Evil Genius has returned to its roots and again shares the spotlight with Bake'n Bacon.
We knew we had to try it when we heard of a food truck themed around bacon. We knew we could create something unique with our iconic branding and delicious food. We invited the guys at Bake'n Bacon to our food truck festival, and they instantly clicked.
The beer is called Tast-E Bacon and plays on Bake'n Bacon's most famous dessert, the sweet-salty combination of chocolate-covered strawberries topped with crumbled bacon. Tast-E Bacon is a 5.0% ABV beer brewed using smoked malt to give it a sweet bacon taste. It also had a light hop addition so the chocolate and strawberry flavors could shine. Evil Genius states that the beer was brewed without bacon, which suits all dietary restrictions.
Justin Coleman, the founder of Bake'n Bacon, said that 2023 was an exciting year. We're opening our brick-and-mortar restaurant in South Philadelphia this spring. We will debut our first beer collaborative with it. We are excited to share this collaboration with everyone. We can't wait for our South Philly restaurant to open later this spring or summer. "But more on that soon."
