The Philadelphia Bacon and Beer Festival is back for a third year as a fundraiser for Manna. More than 25 restaurants will offer bacon dishes made with 1732 Meats oft-praised bacon. Wash down that bacon with beer samples from dozens of craft breweries.
The event takes place on Saturday, November 14th from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at the 23rd Street Armory. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14, and will sell out quickly. General admission tickets cost $46.50 per person and include unlimited bacon and beer samples during the two-and-a-half hour event.
A VIP option offers the chance to skip the line to get, a swag bag with a Bacon and Beer t-shirt, a take-home pack of 1732 Meats bacon, and other goodies. Seems kind of like a no-brainer.

The Bacon and Beer Festival sold out within the thirty seconds it took me to realize my mouse was upside down. So they’re going to be selling tickets to an after party at the Hotel Monaco’s Stratus Lounge. Tickets are $25 and go on sale at 2 p.m. today.
Tickets include bacon-ized cupcakes from Sweet Box, bacon bites from Ribs Within and two drink tickets for bacon and beer cocktails.
The after party is Sunday, December 8th from 6 to 8 p.m. The bar will remain open after the after party and drinks will be available for the discount price of $5 each.
The bacon cocktails »
The 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.
