Well, it also ends with beer.
But in the middle... so much sausage.
Oh, wait. The sausage has beer in it, too.
Anyway, our tale begins here: Kaiser Tiger, a two-story bastion of beer, bacon and sausage from the Paddy Long’s people, now open on Randolph Street.
This is the kind of place you’ll find yourself at after work. Probably in a big red bucket seat at the second-floor bar, looking at impressive skyline views and happily hoisting one of the 24 beers on tap. Try the Scurry, a thought-to-be-extinct German honey ale, which Off Color Brewing has somehow resurrected. It’s always great when that happens.
On the menu: sure, The Bomb, that ever-so-subtle bacon-wrapped, bacon-stuffed meat loaf thing from Paddy Long’s, makes an appearance. But there are also bacon-and-beer flights, sausage-and-beer flights, The Justin Bieber, which is basically a big white brat (you see what they did there), and the masterwork—Beer & Bacon.
It’s a bacon-wrapped sausage that’s made with more bacon, pork and so much Lagunitas IPA that the USDA was almost afraid to let them serve it.
Thankfully, the government usually errs on the side of beer sausage.
