Thelma and Louise, Ben and Jerry, Hall and Oates, Kim and Kanye, and chocolate and peanut butter. Some things just go better together.

it did't take a genius to figure out that this kind of festival is a good idea. It just took someone to do the legwork of putting an event together. Sometimes that's a great challenge. Not the Bacon & Beer Classic. this is a no-brainer and you know you want to go. Here come the deets.

October 6th, 2018. More than 100 beers from regional breweries, and close to 50 different bacon dishes from local chefs, a blind beer taste test, a bacon eating contest, lawn games, music, and some surprises.

My desire for some bacon right now is so great that I can actually smell it. I'm headed to Vintage 501 in downtown Rockford right now for, trust me on this, the best bacon treat I've ever had.
