San Diego Event of the Week Aztec Brewing Company’s 3rd Annual Bacon & Brews Cook-Off starts at the brewery in Vista at 1pm. Teams will be competing for trophies and prizes with dishes of their own creation -- made with bacon from pigs that have been fed Aztec Brewing’s spent grains (mmm... spent grains). Samples of the competing dishes will be provided to the audience on a first-come first-served basis and, of course, there will be live music and plenty of beer.
