Sunsetter Beer Candied Bacon Recipe

Beer Candied Bacon

After having a chance to test out the great new Sunsetter Beer from Stanley Park Brew I knew I had to create something with it that would be perfect for snacking on. Something outside the box a little bit but that I knew would be a great pair. I started thinking pork chop dinners and from there it hit me! Beer Candied Bacon. Did you hear me?


With the Sunsetter beer having a great peach flavor I knew this was going to be amazing and I am so happy they did too and urged me to give it a go!

Once I got their blessing, and some help with ingredients, I ran off to one of the best deli’s I knew for some of the best bacon I could find and as usual these ladies didn’t disappoint me. They never do when it comes to bacon and they have a bunch. I mean what better way to compliment a local brew than with locally smoked bacon am I right?! I snagged two different types their slicing bacon and their kings bacon.


I giggled all the way home making the whole skytrain envious since I was carrying a bunch of strongly smoked meat. It was glorious – they really need to make bacon a perfume. Anyways once I was home, we had finished dinner and my kids were out of my hair hubby and I could get to work on our beer candied bacon creation.
