Bacon and beer lovers near and far, cause for celebration is here! After drawing sold-out crowds across the country, the Bacon and Beer Classic is bringing sudsy, bacon-fueled fun to Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on Saturday, November 5th.
Over 30 local restaurants and 40 regional breweries, that includes cideries, too, will serve up delicious bacon-infused dishes and refreshing craft beer & cider throughout the stadium. In addition to sampling unlimited food and drink, guests can also try their hand at giant Jenga, strike a pose at the photo booth, battle it out on the bungee run, brand themselves with bacon and beer-inspired tattoos, compete in a bacon eating contest, and more.
Kate Levenstien, founder of Cannonball Productions and the Bacon and Beer Classic, is thrilled to bring the Classic to Nashville for the first time. “A city known for its food, music, and rich local culture, Nashville is the perfect backdrop for our Classic. I can’t wait to try the best dishes and craft beers in the area, and share them with thousands of fellow foodies and beer lovers!”
All participating breweries & cideries will pour two of their best craft beers or ciders, and local chefs will bring their most inventive bacon-infused dishes to the plate. A panel of judges will be on site to rate the sips and tastes and also award winners in select categories.
Guests can attend one of two General Admission sessions from 1-4p.m. and 7-10p.m, upgrade to an Early Access ticket for half hour early entrance, or opt for the full VIP experience. VIP ticket holders are offered one-hour early admission and exclusive access to the field, where they may enjoy additional craft beers, ciders, and bacon dishes.
As always, the Bacon and Beer Classic is all-inclusive. General Admission tickets are currently selling at $49, Early Access tickets are selling at $65 and VIP tickets are selling at $79, but prices will increase over the next few weeks. All tickets include a souvenir Bacon and Beer Classic tasting glass to take home.
The Bacon and Beer Classic is one of the fastest-growing food and beverage festivals in the country. The 2016 tour has featured over five destinations nationwide, including Denver’s Mile High Stadium, Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium and New York City’s Citi Field. Cannonball Productions works hard to make this national festival feel personal to each city. Along with a variety of charitable organizations, Cannonball Productions is partnering with a local food recovery group to save and donate leftover food.
