Those of us who live in the Bay Area have the (quite decadent) opportunity to nosh on 4505 Meats' amazing chicharrones at any time. We can also check out owner Ryan Farr's butchery demos or taste some of his amazing beer-soaked bratwurst at The Ferry on Thursday afternoons. But these lovely hand-pulled Hatch Print letterpress posters are available to everyone. Click through for more information.
The posters were made recently at the famous Hatch Show Print press in Nashville, TN. Using a hand pulled process (see video above), each limited-edition poster is signed by Ryan Farr and marked with a thumbprint of lard. They would make an excellent gift for a pork (the noun) lover or framed up to decorate your kitchen wall with 'crispity clouds of porkaliciousness'!

Oh, and the chicharrones? For those who don't know, chicharrones are simply deep fried pork skins. But there's nothing simple about the incredible taste explosion one gets from 4505's chicharrones, whose secret formula includes sugar, chilies, salt and, of course, pork skins, all fried up in rice bran oil. Dubbed 'crackly crack-in-a-bag' by the critics, these crispy snacks are impossible to put down.
