If you read the words "Bacon & Beer Festival" in the headline and your heart skipped a beat, there'll be plenty more heart-stopping action where that came from when you actually head out to the Wigwam Resort's event celebrating all things porcine and sudsy. The event, which takes place on October 25, will feature unlimited beer samples, bacon burger sliders, and more.
Be prepared to have as much smoky, crunchy bacon and brew styles as you can possibly handle because this event has it all. Put on by Wigwam and the Arizona Pork Council, the event will also feature 30 participating breweries that will serve out unlimited beer samples as long as you keep your commemorative sample glass handy.
Local favorites like College Street Brewhouse, Phoenix Ale Brewery, Papago Brewing Co., San Tan Brewing Co., Huss Brewing Co., and Lumberyard will join the likes of Unibroue, Left Hand, Breckenridge, Mike Hess, and Ballast Point. The event will also feature eats like a bacon beer brat, bacon burger sliders, and a bacon sundae for those folks that like to mix their sweet and savory treats.
The Beer & Bacon Festival hits the WIgwam Front Lawn on Saturday, October 25 from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. Admission is $30 in advance and $35 day-of, including the sample glass. You can also purchase a designated driver ticket for $10 if you're just in it for the bacon. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Honey Foundation.
