Beer and bacon come together for tasting event Thursday


Bacon and beer.

Did I catch your attention?

Two of Boynton Beach’s most delicious businesses are teaming up Thursday to bring you a beer and bacon tasting at Due South Brewery. The brewery will serve the beer, and Bacon Boxes will provide the bacon. You’ll get four pairings.

The event is from 6-9 p.m. at the brewery, 2900 High Ridge Rd, Suite 3.

Here are the pairings:

  • Caramel Cream Ale and Bahamian Berkshire Bacon, Spiced Rum cured with toasted coconut.
  • Oaked Category 5 IPA and Spicy Duck Bacon.
  • Mariana Trench Imperial Stout and Salted Caramel Duck Bacon, maple cured with Fleur de Sel.
  • Legendairy Milk Stout and Smoked Bacon Fudge Brownie.

Now, I’d like to make a few disclosures: I drank beer at Due South. I brought my dad there on Father’s Day and my husband and I order it if it’s on a menu when we are out to dinner. I haven’t bought bacon at Bacon Boxes, but I’ve thought about it. And, I love bacon.

Here’s some background about Due South: Mike Halker is the president and head brewer. The business opened in 2012. Some of the brewery’s flagship beers are Caramel Cream Ale, Category 3 India Pale Ale and Category 5 imperial IPA. The brewery has pretty much exploded in success and popularity and is distributed outside the state.

In case you haven’t heard of Bacon Boxes, here are some facts from a story I did two years ago. Kimberly Hruda and Logan Israel run the business, which they launched in 2015. The idea for the business came about when Israel made bacon roses for her fiance, who shared them with people at his office. Employees became interested and ended up ordering boxes. That led Israel to develop a business plan, and Hruda came on board. Hruda and Israel were already close friends.

Bacon Boxes sells bacon boxes and bacon bouquets. Flavors include chocolate bacon, campfire s’more, pumpkin spice and cinnamon bun.

In March, The Palm Beach Post reported the business was named 2017 American Small Business Champion as part of a competition run by Score, a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground.

Tickets can be purchased at squareup.com/store/due-south-brewing/item/bacon-and-beer-pairing or at the door the day of the event.
