SHAKE 'N' BAKE BEER? BETTER BELIEVE IT

Who doesn't remember Talledega Nights? Who didn't use the old "Shake 'N' Bake" line? Repeatedly?

So that was a bit of harmless fun. Past tense.

Now the Good Ole Boys of NASCAR have gone and ruined it. Can you imagine a Shake 'N' Bake beer?

No, neither can we.

There is indulgence and then there's the ludicrously indulgent. The level of indulgence that makes even Americophiles understand why the rest of the world laughs at them sometimes. Well, that's this level of indulgence.

The Rahr & Sons concoction (we stop short of calling it a brew) has been, err, concocted for the AAA Texas 500 race weekend from October 31 to November 3. So, if there's any consolation, you're going to have to be in a very specific place and moment in the space-time continuum to suffer through it.

So what they've done is combined half a bottle of the Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager (which we've yet to sample in its purest form) with actual pieces of bacon and, wait for it, vanilla ice cream. No, stop, it's not April 1.

The pieces of bacon aren't just pieces of bacon, either. They are candied in sugar and syrup and then, just in case you missed that there was bacon, there is additional bacon-flavoured syrup in it. And there is whipped cream on the top of the sort-of beer. 

If that's not enough, it will cost US$10 for a 16-ounce plastic cup. 

This plague is not solely upon the beer drinkers, either, because the mixture is going to be tossed into a non-alcoholic root beer as well.

While this might breach the open-minded approach Beeriosity takes to its testing procedures, we think we're pretty safe in saying this will be, err, awful.
