Shake'n bacon grew at Texas Motor Speedway. Only in America baby!
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 will debut Oct. 31-Nov. 3 during the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR tripleheader race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
The Shake 'n Bacon Brew utilizes 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 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 will be 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 will produce a "Shirley Temple" version for those fans under 21 that have a love for bacon and milkshakes. The Shake 'n Bacon Brewless will substitute root beer for the Rahr & Sons beer and also come in the 16-ounce souvenir cup.
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 3 and 4. The drinks also will be available in The Speedway Club for Texas Motor Speedway's club members.
Shake 'n Bacon Brew and Brewless are the third and fourth bacon-infused concession items that Chef Pena has produced, joining Texas Motor Speedway's growing family of novelty concession items that debuted during April's NASCAR race weekend.
The most popular item of the group was the "Hawg Heaven" bacon cotton candy, which was joined by the Bacon Martini, Smokin' Hubcaps (brisket on a glazed donut), mac 'n cheese hot dog and chocolate-covered Pit Stop Popcorn. All of these items will be available once again for the AAA Texas 500 race weekend.
The only opportunity to taste these unique concession items is to attend the AAA Texas 500 race week set for Oct. 31-Nov. 3 at Texas Motor Speedway. For ticket information, please visit or call the Texas Motor Speedway Ticket Office at (817) 215-8500
