According to this uber-scientific graph by Foodzie.com, there are really only a few gift choices for your macho nacho-lover this Valentine's Day: bacon, bourbon, beer or bubkis. It's not rocket science, but if it were, the rocket would probably have some bacon crumbles on top and it would be propelled by smoky beer hops. Oh yeah, and the astronaut would be drinking bourbon.
Luckily for your guy, and thanks to years of bro-engineering, he can have his bacon and beer it too with some craft hybrids: GQ drafted Schlenkerla as its choice for a bubbly-bacon brewsky, citing its smoky flavor. Not to be outdone by the Germans in the arms race to the fridge, local scientists have invented their own splicing of masculinity: Bourbon-Coffee-Bacon Caramel Corn.
In the name of forging ahead into new territories, going where no man has gone before, taking one small step for man, one giant leap for ... Brooklyn(?), one would be remiss not to mention the Neil Armstrong of micro-brewing: Kings County Distillery, whose founders cleverly dug into the New York farming laws and found a way to legally brew Bourbon at home in the Big Apple. Licensed on April 14, 2010, Kings County Distillery is New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery, the first since before prohibition. KCD began with moonshine before making bourbon, which lends to its boozy street-cred - something your dude is sure to be impressed with.
