We're taking our first mini vacation in a long time and driving up to Montreal for the music festival Mutek, which is coincidentally the same weekend as their Beer Festival! We have reservations for Au Pied de Cochon, and are very excited to take a break for 4 days.
And equally important is the cargo we'll be taking up with us! One liter of our experimental maple bacon soda. We tried this a few month ago and decided it'd be fun (or foolish) to take a bottle up with us to try impress Au Pied de Cochon. It's currently carbonating in our fridge. (Just to recap, in order to extract bacon water you have to cook the bacon in water, then take this fatty bacon-water and add it to a gelatin mixture, freeze it in an ice cube tray, then as the bacon-gelatin mixture melts, the fat is left behind leaving a clear fat-free bacon liquid which you can then add maple syrup to)
This does mean that we won't be at the Flea this weekend, but our bottles will still be available at Blue Hill and Palo Santo.
