The Bacon and Beer Classic Returns to Minneapolis

BaconandBeerClassicLogoBacon and beer lovers rejoice! After drawing sold-out crowds across the country, the Bacon and Beer Classic is coming to the Nicollet Island Pavilion on Saturday, April 15, 2017 for the ultimate food and drink experience.

A festival unlike any other, the Classic will feature mouth-watering bacon dishes, unlimited bacon strips, and over 50 craft beers from regional breweries. Guests can also try their hand at giant Jenga, strike a pose in a photo booth, battle it out on the bungee run, brand themselves with bacon and beer-inspired tattoos, compete in a bacon eating contest, and more. The first place winner of the bacon eating contest will take home a year of Hormel® Black Label® bacon and the second place winner will take home a Duff Goldman gift basket from Tylina Foods.

Kate Levenstien, founder of Cannonball Productions and the Bacon and Beer Classic, is thrilled to bring the festival back to Minneapolis for the second time.  “Minneapolis is home to so many amazing craft breweries and boasts a quickly-growing food scene” she says.  “My team and I can’t wait to showcase the best bacon dishes and beer this city has to offer.”
