Bikes, Bacon, Beer

Bike Against Hunger

Rotary First Harvest says that over 100 billion pounds of food goes uneaten within the United States every year. Does that appall you? How about the fact that 50 million people within the United States fall into the category of “food insecure?” Bike Against Hunger aims to shed light upon these startling facts. Plan to attend the Omaha Bike Against Hunger event on August 1 at 5:00 at Miller’s Landing.

Join the (Bacon) Club

If you consider yourself a discerning bacon fanatic and have an appreciation for locally-made food, you might want to check out the Omaha Bacon Club. Locally-made bacon that comes from ethically-raised pigs is what members get every second Friday of the month. This is a good option for someone who wants to try a bunch of different bacon varieties while also eating local. Sign up before August 15 to get introductory membership prices.

Empyrean’s Mango IPA Returns

Nebraska’s Empyrean Brewing recently re-released their popular Carpe Brewem Imperial Mango IPA. The last time they released this particular brew on draft, it sold out in a matter of weeks. So it’s probably a good idea to get your hands on some of this before it’s gone again.

Nebraska Brewing Company’s Gold Medal

Speaking of beer, Nebraska Brewing Company won a gold medal at the Los Angeles International Beer Competition for their Ale Storm brew. It won the medal in the Golden/Blonde category. The brew was originally produced in partnership with the Storm Chasers.
