Bacon-infused beer milkshake coming to Texas Motor Speedway

Posted 9:19am on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013

Fans attending the AAA Texas 500 weekend, Oct. 31-Nov. 3, at Texas Motor Speedway will have the opportunity to be among the first to try the Shake 'N Bacon Brew beer milkshake. The newest item at the huge facility in north Fort Worth is the concoction of Levy Restaurants Executive Chef Joel Pena.

The Shake 'N Bacon will feature local products for its key ingredients including a signature craft beer from Fort Worth's Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. and Blue Bell Ice Cream, which was founded in Brenham in 1907. The beverage will consist of six ounces of Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager, six ounces of Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream, two ounces of candied bacon and two ounces of bacon-infused maple syrup that is mixed in a blender to create the milkshake.

While the Shake 'N Bacon is for adults 21 and over, there is also what is being touted as a "Shirley Temple" version for younger race fans who also enjoy bacon and milkshakes. The Shake 'N Bacon Brewless will replace the Rahr & Sons beer with root beer and will come in the same 16-ounce souveneir cup. Both items will cost $10 and will be available at the "Pig Rig" between Gates 3 and 4 on the main concourse.

The Shake 'N Bacon milkshakes join the other bacon-infused items produced by Chef Pena, the Hawg Heaven bacon cotton candy and the Bacon Martini. Other novelty items Chef Pena has created for Texas Motor Speedway include the brisket on a glazed doughnut known as 'Smokin' Hubcaps' and chocolate-covered Pit Stop Popcorn.

For further information on the novelty concession items and to purchase tickets to the AAA Texas 500 including the pre-race show featuring O.A.R., call (817) 215-8500 or visit here.
