The Philadelphia Bacon and Beer Festival

Media Title

The time has come for the inaugural Philadelphia Bacon and Beer Festival, and if you don’t have tickets, too bad: It sold out in a mere 30 seconds. The BBF’s three previous gorgefests in Boston have sold out in minutes, sure, but never in half of one, according to organizer Aaron Cohen. “Thirty seconds is the record for fastest sell-out, and it’s only the first year here, too, so I was surprised!” he tells PW of the BBF’s foray into Philly. An event that celebrates two of knuckle-dragging man’s most highly-desired palate pleasers in a city with a river-deep appreciation of both is no real surprise: The surprise is that no one’s done it before.

So, what’s on tap? The name says it all. Expect savory and sweet bacon offerings courtesy of dining hotspots like Alla Spina, Pub & Kitchen, Southwark, The Mildred, Standard Tap, Lemon Hill, Cheu Noodle Bar and 10 Arts, while craft masters from places including Victory Brewing Co., Sly Fox, Troegs Brewing Co., Dogfish Head, Nodding Head and Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery promise to keep the ice-cold beer flowing freely. Proceeds will help fund MANNA; eating well so others can do the same this season is an absolute win-win.

Can’t get your fill at the Fest? Check the afterparty at Hotel Monaco’s rooftop bar, Cohen says, featuring “some nibbles from Sweet Box Cupcakes and Ribs Within, beer from Vault Brewing and a special bacon and beer related cocktail menu from Stratus’ mixologists.” / RANDY LOBASSO
