The ongoing Covid situation has affected local small businesses and many are struggling to stay open. In an effort to help those small businesses survive, we are featuring them in a segment we call #SmallBusinessShoutout!
Today we'd like to introduce you to Bacon Swinery in San Marcos!
Bruce Knight says that the company was born from a desire to bring better quality bacon and interesting flavors for everyone to enjoy. They want to change a classic breakfast staple into an artisanal experience!
From their website:
"Ever think that wine connoisseurs and sommeliers sound pretty pretentious with their descriptions of wine like "with a hint of orange and lavender, pencil lead and ground pepper?" Yeah, we do too. But we love wine and beer...and mixed drinks too.
We love wine, but we don't think you have to be a pretentious jerk when you're drinking it...and this got us to thinking: why couldn't our OTHER favorie thing...BACON...be appreciated in the same way as great wine and alcohol, without the attitude?
Wouldn't it be awesome if you not only tasted bacon, but you got a hint of some other amazing flavors? Not 'punch in the face' flavor, just a soft caress to remind you how great it is to be alive. Well, that's our idea on how to make the greatest bacon in the world.
Welcome to Bacon Swinery!"
They also have an artisan 'Bacon Of The Month' Club! (Now you all know what to buy Shannon for Christmas!)
Bruce Knight and Curtis McConnel from the Swinery joined Gary & Shannon to talk about all things bacon, hear that interview below.
