Salami Variety Pack

No table is complete without a holiday ham and River Bear’s Spiral Sliced Honey-Glazed Ham ($89.99) is made from antibiotic-free, humanely raised Berkshire pork.

River Bear American Meats, a Denver-based producer that uses old world techniques to make new world fresh and cured meats, has announced the lineup of the company’s holiday meat offerings for 2022.

All of River Bear's products are hormone-free and made with no junk and no fillers, just the family farm-raised, hand-trimmed good stuff. To ensure this standard, the company works exclusively with a co-op of family-owned farms in the Midwest and Colorado that are committed to a strict code of responsible animal husbandry.

For a taste of River Bear, the Dry-Cured Salami Variety Pack ($84) offers a combination of the company’s most popular salamis which are shelf stable (perfect for traveling + stuffing in stockings). The variety pack includes Habanero Orange Salami made with pork, habaneros, and orange zest, which River Bear loves paired with a fruity spiked seltzer or an orange wine; Colorado Beef Green Chile Salami made with Colorado Angus beef and Pueblo Green Chile Peppers; Fennel Pollen Salami, an old-world style recipe made with fennel pollen, white wine, and River Bear’s proprietary blend of spices; Dry Chorizo, a traditional Spanish-style recipe and perfect accompaniment to spice-up a variety of dishes or as part of a salumi board; Calabrian Chile & Vermouth Salami, pork with imported Calabrian chill peppers and sweet vermouth (try it with a vodka martini); and a spreadable ‘Nduja which River Bear loves on a grilled cheese. All the salamis are made from antibiotic-free, humanely raised heritage breed pork and Angus beef and are naturally cured with celery powder and sea salt.

No table is complete without a holiday ham and River Bear’s Spiral Sliced Honey-Glazed Ham ($89.99) is made from antibiotic-free, humanely raised Berkshire pork. Glazed with River Bear’s proprietary blend of all-natural spices, sugar, and honey granules, the ham is slow smoked over applewood to enhance the Berkshire flavor. This ham, which pairs well with a Lambrusco, is spiral sliced, fully cooked, and ready to eat.

To get the day started right, order River Bear’s Uncured Bacon ($39 for a 4 pack) and wash it down with a Bloody Mary or a breakfast stout. This bacon is dry-rubbed and cured with River Bear’s proprietary blend of all-natural herbs and spices, then smoked over real fruitwood. No nitrates or nitrites, just naturally cured with sea salt and celery powder for that perfect bacon bite.

And for the main event, River Bear’s Prime Rib ($129.99) cannot be missed. This showstopper is a slow roasted, American raised boneless ribeye seasoned with River Bear’s house blended red meat rub. Perfect for holiday gatherings, each prime rib is roasted to a juicy medium-rare and will be a minimum of 3.5 lbs. (will feed around six people). Available directly through River Bear’s website or through the company’s distributing partner, Royal Crest. Pairs perfectly with big reds like Barolo, a Manhattan, or a Pilsner.
