Texas Motor Speedway and Levy Restaurants brew up bacon-infused beer milkshake

Many people tend to have hankerings for beer, milkshakes or bacon – or for that matter all three – and now thanks to Levy Restaurants and Texas Motor Speedway those cravings can be satisfied all at once.

Levy Restaurants Executive Chef Joel Pena has created the Shake ‘n Bacon Brew beer milkshake, a delectable, bacon-infused, alcoholic novelty concoction that fans enjoyed during the recent AAA Texas 500 NASCAR tripleheader race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.

The Shake ‘n Bacon Brew utilises local Texas products in its key ingredients with the beverage featuring a signature craft beer from Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. of Fort Worth and ever-popular Blue Bell Ice Cream, a company that was founded in 1907 in Brenham, Texas.

The $10 frothy beverage consists of 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 then topped off with three ounces of whipped cream and bacon crumbles.

Levy Restaurants also produced a ‘Shirley Temple’ version for those fans under 21. The Shake ‘n Bacon Brewless substituted root beer for the Rahr & Sons beer.
