Denver Bacon and Beer Festival Scheduled for November 16

DENVER, CO — Returning for its third year, the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival will be held November 16. This is not just any food festival, and not just any beer festival, instead the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival features 18 breweries and 25+ restaurants. The Denver Bacon and Beer Festival is presented by EatBoston and Denver Off The Wagon.

In the last two years, the Denver Bacon and Beer Festival has raised almost $40,000 for Project Angel Heart and Metro CareRing. The Denver Bacon and Beer Festival is excited to announce a continued partnership with these two organizations.

“Each November, Colorado breweries and chefs out do themselves with the dishes and beers they bring to the festival,” said Aaron Cohen, founder of EatBoston. “This year to make things even more exciting, one restaurant and one brewery will be crowned Denver’s first “Beast in Show,” a people’s choice vote for the best beer and bacon dish. The winning restaurant and brewery will receive bragging rights and a $750 donation to a local charity of their choice.”

The Denver Bacon and Beer Festival will take place on Sunday, November 16 from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. at The Curtis Hotel (1405 Curtis St., Denver CO 80202).

“Over the past two years, Denverites have consumed more than 2,000 pounds of bacon at this festival,” said PJ Hoberman, founder of Denver Off The Wagon. “Pairing bacon with different styles of beer allows a drinker to really taste the hoppiness in an IPA and the maltiness in, say, a stout. Bacon, like beer, is an element. Both are an essential part of life and make people very happy.”

The festival is open to adults 21 and older. Event tickets can be purchased online at starting October 16 at 10 a.m. Mountain Standard Time for $46.50. Tickets include unlimited bacon small bites and beer samples.
