2011 Bacon & Beer Festival
The 2011 Bacon & Beer Festival is coming soon! On April 30th, Eat Boston will host the second annual Bacon & Beer Festival at the Bowery in the South End of Boston. What is better than bacon and beer? I have a hard time thinking of things that even come close! So, when tickets go on sale on April 1st, will you get yours? Last year the event sold out pretty quickly, so I have to imagine they will go quickly again this year! Sarah and I went with our friends Peter and Jessica to the 2010 Bacon & Beer Festival and met up with our friends Josh and Brynn and had a great time. Thankfully, we arrived about an hour before the doors opened and were roughly 10th in line at the start. This prevented us from a very, very long wait. This year's breweries will include, but are not limited to: Blue Hills Brewery, Sam Adams, Clown Shoes Brewing, Long Trail, Harpoon Brewery, Ipswich Ale Brewery, Notch, Smuttynose Brewing Co., Cape Ann Brewing, Mayflower Brewing Co. and many, many more! The event will be Saturday April 30th from 1-3:30pm at the Bowery in Boston. Tickets are $35 and sales will benefit hunger relief organizations Lovin' Spoonfuls, Community Servings, and Share our Strength. Tickets go on sale this Friday April 1st at 1pm.
