Summer may have lost its sizzle, but the falling temperatures are no reason to get salty—unless it involves curing your end-of-summer blues by pigging out on the one food that never disappoints: bacon. Give new meaning to the term "comfort food"—and drown your seasonal sorrows in suds while you're at it—with an Adventure that's piled high with pork products: an evening of bacon and beer, with a craft beer tasting at a classic St. Paul brewpub along with delicious bacon-inspired pairings.
We'll start by heading to the Great Waters Brewing Company in St. Paul, where our porcine posse will be waiting to greet us and check us in. After everyone's arrived, we'll belly up for a tasting of four gourmet bacon-centered pairings—think a bacon hushpuppy with bacon jam or a bacon chocolate tart with sea salt. Each of these tastings will be paired with a 5-oz. glass of Great Waters craft brew in a souvenir LivingSocial tasting glass that's ours to take home at the end of the evening. Appropriately, the whole event will take place in the Historic "Hamm" Building in downtown St. Paul, a former cathedral converted into a stylish pub and brewery.
After the tasting, we'll be free to stick around and hang out with our new bacon buddies and purchase additional food and beer from the brewery's extensive menu, which will have us in hog heaven. Now that the smoke has cleared from summer, there's no need to be rash—take solace in swine with an Adventure that's sure to render you speechless.
