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.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, November 13th at 10 a.m. The Philadelphia festival will only be a quarter of the size the original in Boston and that one sold out in minutes. 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.


Tickets are $45 and include access to the festival and unlimited samples from all of the restaurants and brewers.
