Event Preview | 2016 Bacon and Beer Fest

2016 Bacon and Beer Fest

What: 2016 Bacon and Beer Fest

When: Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 2 – 5:30 p.m.

Where: The Glitter Dome 3600 Wynkoop St | Denver, CO 80216

There may not be a more divine combination fit for consumption, than the pairing of finely crafted beer and bacon put through the culinary ringer 20 different ways. This Saturday’s 2016 Bacon and Beer Fest once again showcases some of Colorado’s best and brightest breweries paired with equally inspiring heavy hitters from Denver’s rising restaurant scene.

From a beer perspective, its an opportunity to revisit familiar breweries that either reinvented themselves or have continued their upward trajectories with new and exciting offerings. Cerebral Brewing, Grimm Brother and Left Hand are all fresh off their newly minted GABF medals. Meanwhile Call to Arms, Comrade, Goldspot, Little Machine, Our Mutual Friend, and Ratio still continue to gain acclaim as Denver’s hottest new-ish breweries. You’ve also got old guards like Boulder Beer, Breckenridge, Great Divide, Wynkoop who continue to reinvent themselves, as well as that strong sophomore class of City Star, Renegade, Wit’s End and Strange who are continuing to innovate and sustain their legacy of quality.

But what makes this event truly special is the creative liberties employed by Denver’s culinary masters in celebrating all things bacon. Last year Rebel Restaurant wowed with their Japanese-style curry katsu pork belly with a crispy shrimp chip, Butcher’s Bistro extended boundaries via their bistro bacon wrapped hogs head with a chili apple jam and pumpkin pie caramel, and Bubu Lowery took pork to the third power with their butternut squash ravioli with ginger and pecan smoked pork belly topped with asian pear slaw, apple soy sauce and pork crackling.
