Bacon and beer are basically the two best things in the world, so presumably, pairing the two with an epic string of festivals aptly named the Bacon and Beer Classic was probably a no-brainer. The event is held in multiple cities around the country and celebrates the two most important things in life.
General admission to the festival gets you a full 3 hours of unlimited bacon and beer tasting across all of the festival's offerings, along with access to games, bacon-eating contests, and -- in New York's case -- Citi Field Stadium during its off-hours. The festival gives you a ceramic souvenir tasting glass to try 3-ounce pours of a variety of beers from regional breweries. At New York's event this weekend, more than 50 craft brewers will be pouring more than 100 different beers, and you have access to them all. Local chefs will also be serving upwards of 50 dishes all made of bacon.
