Bacon and Beer Festival Coming to Philadelphia

bacon-wayne-Philly-webThe first ever Philadelphia Bacon and Beer Festival is coming to to the Hotel Monaco on Sunday, December 8th. Fifteen of the city’s best bacon-loving restaurants and nine local craft breweries are participating.

The event also benefits MANNA, with at least 50% of the proceeds going to the non-profit.

This is the fourth city the festival has gone to. Denver was added in 2012 and San Francisco had its first bacon and beer fest this year.
