BACON AND BEER! Do not sleep on buying tickets! This event sells out in just a few weeks time!

In past years (we were there both years y’all!), this event has boasted some amazin’ bacon bites and the tastiest quaffs of local craft and this year is no different! For the ticket price, this is my favorite event of the year!  Here are some reasons you should get in on this bacon escape and let the waves of ale take you out to sea!

  • 900lbs of BACON! And I don’t even know how many liters of BEER?!
  • 25 Chefs serving up BACON in all ways thinkable!
  • 18 breweries: pouring multiple BEERS at each station!
  • 800 people spread out over two floors. (read: lots of space to stretch between BACON & BEER!)
  • 1 room, 2 floors of delicious BACON AND BEER!

Returning for its third year, the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival will be held November 16 and is presented by EatBoston and Denver Off The Wagon.

In the last two years, the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival has raised almost $40,000 for Project Angel Heart and Metro CareRing. The Denver Bacon and Beer Festival is excited to announce a continued partnership with these two organizations.

“Each November, Colorado breweries and chefs out do themselves with the dishes and beers they bring to the festival,” said Aaron Cohen, founder of EatBoston. “This year to make things even more exciting, one restaurant and one brewery will be crowned Denver’s first “Beast in Show,” a people’s choice vote for the best beer and bacon dish. The winning restaurant and brewery will receive bragging rights and a $750 donation to a local charity of their choice.”

“Over the past two years, Denverites have consumed more than 2,000 pounds of bacon at this festival,” said PJ Hoberman, founder of Denver Off The Wagon. “Pairing bacon with different styles of beer allows a drinker to really taste the hoppiness in an IPA and the maltiness in, say, a stout. Bacon, like beer, is an element. Both are an essential part of life and make people very happy.”
