Beer and bacon: Together in flight

David and Jack Cunicelli have introduced all-natural, house-cured and smoked, thick-cut bacon at their 320 Market Café (713 Chester Rd., Swarthmore)

And what goes better with bacon than beer.

The Cunicellis have launched a beer and bacon flight called "When Pigs Fly" that is available for $12 through April.

You get a sampling of each.

Their tasting notes:

Saison + Balsamic, featuring Stillwater Classique (4.5% ABV): Drizzled with a house-made balsamic reduction, the bacon in this pairing takes you back to the pasture, where farmers historically ended their days with a light and refreshing Saison.

Belgian Tripel + Blood Orange, featuring Allagash Tripel (9.0 ABV): Salty and sweet combine in this pairing, where the bright citrus crispness of blood orange holds its own against savory bacon as the honey notes of a Belgian-style Tripel tie everything together.

Stout + Dark Chocolate, featuring Founder’s Breakfast Stout (8.3% ABV): A thick, roasty stout provides a perfect complement for smooth and dense dark chocolate, while the bacon’s smoky crunch intensifies the richness of the stout and the chocolate.

Bleu Cheese + Bacon, featuring Bell’s Two Hearted Ale (7.0% ABV): A creamy gorgonzola spread amplifies the bacon’s satisfying, salt-cured richness while simultaneously coaxing a subtle sweetness from this traditionally bitter style of beer.

The beer pairing and the bacon sampling are available separately for $8 apiece, for beer lovers who don’t eat bacon or bacon lovers who don’t drink beer.
