Things are bigger — and come with bacon — in Texas
From the track that brought the racing world “Hawg Heaven” bacon cotton candy, Texas Motor Speedway unveiled it’s newest concession item today, a bacon-infused beer milkshake. And for you designated drivers and for fans under age 21, there’s a root beer-based version of the bacon shake.
It’s amazing the racing world has survived this long without the Shake ‘n Bacon Brew.
The treats, which were created by Levy Restaurants’ executive chef Joel Pena, will be on the menu for the Oct. 31-Nov. 3 AAA Texas 500 NASCAR tripleheader weekend at TMS.
The Texas-sized drink features a signature craft beer from Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. of Fort Worth and Blue Bell ice cream from a company founded in 1907 in Brenham, Texas.
Ingredients include six ounces of Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager, six ounces of Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream, two ounces of bacon-infused maple syrup that is mixed in a blender for a unique milkshake for adults 21 and over. The Shake ‘n Bacon Brew is poured into a 16-ounce plastic souvenir cup featuring the brew’s pig mascot and topped off with three ounces of whipped cream and bacon crumbles.
Levy Restaurants also will produce a non-alcoholic root beer-based version for those fans under 21 that have a love for bacon and milkshakes. And who doesn’t have a love of bacon and milkshakes?
Shake ‘n Bacon Brew and Shake ‘n Bacon Brewless will sell for $10 each during race week and be available at the “Pig Rig” located on the main concourse between gates three and four at TMS. The drinks also will be available in The Speedway Club for Texas Motor Speedway’s club members.
