On Saturday April 4, 2017, SobeSavvy.com joined beer lovers at a festival that celebrates the perfect pair: BEER and BACON! The Beer and Bacon Festival is known for being the Best Bacon Bash in The Triangle. If you love bacon and enjoy beer, this fest is for you! Drink Eat Relax, organized this fun event held at Town of Cary’s Booth Ampitheatre. Mother Nature was on our side because it was a gorgeous, sunny day…perfect for an outdoor beer festival!
The Beer & Bacon Tasting Session was from Noon-6pm with a Beer Tasting Session from 2pm – 6pm. Attendees got a chance to enjoy:
- 75 Craft Beers
- 15 Restaurants
- 10 Bacons From Across the US… and lots of Piggy Love
This fun event has sold out for 3 years in a row! The ALL-YOU-CARE-TO-TASTE extravaganza comes complete with the best craft beers for your tasting pleasure… and of course the food of the Gods: BACON . I tasted a gourmet bourbon bacon fresh off the grill that I really enjoyed! Each guest got a souvenir glass and boundless portions of over 75 craft beers and all live entertainment, which was a 90’s cover band. The band was great..I mean who doesn’t love the 90’s ?!
This year the festival’s event planners changed their tickets up a bit based on guest feedback and suggestions. For instance, the early BEER & BACON TASTING SESSIONreduced the amount of tickets sold by over 20%. This allowed for less lines. Also there were NO THIRD PARTY TICKET SELLERS: Living Social, Groupon or whatever your favorite coupon site did not feature any of these tickets for sale.
It was the perfect day for listening to live music, enjoying the fun foodie exhibits, playing games or just relaxing on the grass with your lawn chair or blanket while having some beer and bacon!
