Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale at Worden's Market in Missoula

If you've spent any time in downtown Portland, OR, you've probably paid a visit to Voodoo Doughnuts, the iconic doughnut maker that seems to always have a line way out the door.  They've got fun and crazy combos like glazed doughnuts rolled in captain crunch cereal and the one that makes you do a double take: a maple bar with two strips of bacon on top.

I tried one during a late night run at the 2011 Beer Bloggers Conference and immediately fell in love.  To my great surprise, one month later Rogue Ales announced about a month later they planned to release a Voodoo Doughnuts Bacon Maple Ale. (The original label approval for the beer showed it to be a porter, but when released, it had switched to being a brown ale.) It really does have bacon and maple syrup in it, though no actual doughnuts. 

From there, the beer has taken quite a ride. Rogue sold it initially only in case quantities and it was practically impossible to get.  As the beer slowly leaked out, reviews were . . um . . . curious to read.  Long story short, the beer has finally made it's way to Missoula where single bottles can be purchased at Worden's Market for $12.99.
