For generations, beer pairings were restricted to peanuts and pretzels. While there will be quite a few people wearing pretzels around their necks this Saturday, Stanley’s party is all about showcasing brew with bacon. The fourth annual Craft Beer + Bacon Fest takes place outside, offering sample cuts from Hormel, Meat Candy, Sentryz Market, and even vegan offerings from Herbivorous Butcher. If you need more bacon on top of that bacon, try some Maddie & Maize bacon popcorn or a few Old Dutch bacon ranch kettle chips. Wash it all down with samples from 40-plus breweries, including AleSmith, Clown Shoes, Lupulin, Fair State, Toppling Goliath, and Finnegans. Live music from ’90s cover band You Oughta Know! will take revelers into the evening. For tickets and more info, visit www.stanleysbarroom.com. 21+.
