Bacon Infused Beer Milkshake is Made up of Everything That Makes America Great


Let us all bask in the glory that is the Shake ‘N Bacon Brew.

A collaboration between Levy’s Restaurants and the Texas Motor Speedway, this epic milkshake is made up of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream, Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager, bacon-infused maple syrup, whipped cream and forgoes the traditional maraschino cherry topper in favor of a bacon garnish. It also comes in a souvenir cup so you can hold fast to your bacon milkshake memories.

The 21 and over alcoholic frozen novelty will also be available in virgin form for the younger bacon lovers with root beer being substituted in for the Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager. Because out of everything in this bacon beverage, we’re concerned about the kids drinking beer. Yeah, okay.

Created by Chef Joel Pena to commemorate the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR tripleheader race weekend, the Shake ‘N Bacon Brew will only be available from October 31-November 3 at the Texas Motor Speedway.

Red Robin Adds a Beer Milkshake to Their Fall Menu Offerings

What says ‘Oktoberfest’ better than a beer? Well, according to the Red Robin burger chain, Oktoberfest means the launch of a hopped-up dessert in the form of a Samuel Adams Octoberfest Milkshake.

The new 21 and over milkshake is made with creamy soft serve ice cream, Samuel Adams Octoberfest draft, vanilla and caramel. While the idea of a ‘beer milkshake’ isn’t exceptionally groundbreaking, it is noteworthy when it comes from a chain restaurant with Red Robin’s reach. The shake is part of an Octoberfest menu that will run through November 11.

Along for the Octoberfest menu Red Robin is also debuting some gnarly looking warm pretzel bites served with a side of Merkts-brand beer cheese dip and tangy ber mustard. Additionally, the fast casual chain will be bringing back their Oktoberfest Burger, a seasonal product that features a toasted pretzel bun slathered with beer mustard, a beef patty, melted Swiss cheese, beer mustard sauteed onions, Black Forest ham and green leaf lettuce.

No shortage of things to eat at Red Robin this Fall, and if drinking your sorrows away while catching a few cavities is your type of thing, their Octoberfest Milkshake might be the way to do it.
