Who doesn’t love beer and bacon. As we found out, they are a delicious combo!!!! Instead of our normal happy hour at a bar, we decided to buy a Living Social deal for a beer/bacon tasting (4 beers, 4 bacon dishes). The event was held at the new Living Social space where they host a variety of classes (ie: Wine/Painting, Yoga, etc). It is in a very convenient location (918 F St, NW) and the space was transformed in a very hip/sleek way! The staff is friendly and welcoming which made the whole experience worthwhile.
On the menu: black pepper maple glaze applewood-smoked bacon with Danish blue cheese, local turkey bacon with apple confit with four-year Vermont cheddar, bacon basil blue cheese-stuffed dates, and barbecue spiced artisan grilled hickory bacon.
I don’t enjoy blue cheese so two out of the four dishes were misses for me. But I really enjoyed the bacon w/apple and cheese! J and Ten liked the barbecue bacon a lot. The date dish was everyone’s least favorite in our group. We learned a lot about beer and I learned I still don’t like beers with citrus or coffee undertones.
Overall it was a great class and a good change from our normal routine. I highly recommend you get over to the Living Social space to partake in one of their deals.
