This weekend while the husband and I were biking around downtown, we decided to stop at Union Ale and grab a sandwich and a beer. Because, you know, casually rolling around in 75 degree weather is thirsty work. I meant to be good. I meant to get a salad or a wrap. Or maybe I’d go crazy and get a turkey club.
Instead I got this.

This is their pulled pork sandwich, which is decadent enough. But what takes this monster over the top are the three slices of thick-cut bacon. The pork was tender, the sauce was sweet and tangy and rich, the bacon was perfectly cooked to be slightly crisp yet still chewy. Topped with their green apple coleslaw, I definitely didn’t crave dessert. And yes, I did get the sweet potato fries instead of the salad. What are you insinuating?

When I took my first bite, I was sure I’d never be able to finish it; it was too rich, there was too much meat, too much everything! And yet, champion that I am, I powered through. Toward the end I reluctantly offered my husband a bite and it received his seal of approval as well.

If you go to Union Ale’s website link, you’ll see they’re about to launch the site and have added the title of Smokehouse to their name. I’m not sure what exactly this entails, but suddenly I’m very interested. You can count on me to do the hard work and research to bring you all the details in the coming weeks.
