It is now a well-known fact that bacon and beer go together like grilled cheese and tomato soup, especially in Denver where pairing pork with craft brews has become a kind of artisan religion.
On November 10, 2:30 to 5 p.m. head to the <a href="http://www.exdoevents.com/">EXDO Event Center</a> for the second annual <a href="http://www.wheretoeat.in/2013-denver-bacon-and-beer-festival/"><strong>Denver Bacon & Beer Festival</strong></a> hosted by <a href="http://www.wheretoeat.in/">Eat Boston</a> and Denver Off The Wagon. Sample bacon dishes and beers from over 25 restaurants and 25 breweries (list below) – talk about an ultimate Sunday Funday.
“Bacon and beer were made for each other,” says our own PJ Hoberman, founder of Denver Off The Wagon. “Much like a pretzel necklace, bacon provides salt and texture that aides in clearing and coating the palate. Except that bacon is much more delicious than a pretzel can ever hope to be.”
The Denver Bacon & Beer Festival benefits Metro CareRing and Project Angel Heart, two organizations working to curb hunger and provide nutritious meals to those in the metro area.
“The day will feature out of this world bacon delicacies and some of Colorado’s best craft beer,” said Eat Boston founder Aaron Cohen in a press release. “Hopefully we can raise a good amount of money for Metro CareRing and Project Angel Heart.”
Event tickets ($45) can be purchased <a href="http://www.wheretoeat.in/2013-denver-bacon-and-beer-festival/">here</a>, starting on Tuesday, October 15 at 10 a.m.
