The Bacon and Beer Classic proudly bestows the titular duo with a headliner status worthy of their widespread popularity. The gathering showcases the diverse range of beer and the delectable versatility of bacon via the ingenuity of the vendors. Covering libations will be some 100-plus beers poured from an impressive array of regional breweries, while edible options encompass over 30 bacon-centric dishes dreamed up by local chefs. Attendees can take advantage of unlimited samples as they wander the ballpark, perhaps stopping to take in some music or participate in a lawn game. Those up for a challenge can even partake in a blind beer taste test or compete in a bacon-eating competition. Three ticket options are available, including the maximized indulgence of early entry, a pork belly tasting, a donut wall, and a limited-edition brew created specifically for the occasion.
