Waffle House is known for many things and apparently beer is now one of them. On Tuesday, Waffle House announced it is introducing a bee—a bacon infused red ale.
According to CNN, the Georgia-based brewery Oconee Brewing Company and Waffle House will collab on the first Waffle House-branded beer called Bacon & Kegs.
Leslie Tillery, Oconee’s media director, stated she reached out to Waffle House in January.
“We knew that Waffle House had dipped their toes (or dipped their hash browns, as I like to say in this situation!) into the industry when they allowed beer at their Braves stadium kiosk in 2018,” Tillery told CNN in an email. “I thought (hoped) that they might be interested in craft beer collaboration, so I found an email address for someone at corporate headquarters and proposed the idea. He was kind enough to respond with willingness to discuss the idea more!”
As far as how the beer was created, a few executives attended a tasting. After a few samples, Bacon & Kegs was created.
You can purchase the beer starting December 18th, according to CNN. The beer will be available at the brewery starting on December 18 in six packs and on draft, which will include growler fills of the beer.
While the beer may get a wider release, the beer itself will only be served at SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves and the only location that sells beer.
