Clipper City's Beer & Bacon Fest
I love the sound of this.
Check it: From noon-4 p.m. Saturday Sept. 19, the Clipper City Brewery is throwing a Beer & Bacon Fest, complete with "Pyrates, Pigs & Pints."
We're talking more than 15 kinds of bacon, more than 10 kinds of beer, more than 10 restaurants and even some live music. All you can eat and drink is only $40. Details here.
These are a few of my favorite things ...
Clipper City beers are some of the best locally brewed beers around. And bacon needs no introduction. But I did scratch my head a little about the "15+ bacons" bit. Are there really more than 15 different kinds of bacon out there?
I guess there are, if you count bacon from different kinds of animals, like pig bacon and ostrich bacon. But I've always thought of bacon as coming from a pig. I guess it's just another example of my narrow-mindedness.
What does Kevin Bacon have to do with it? Absolutely nothing. But I thought you'd get a kick out of seeing his photo with a post about his namesake. Even if Bacon isn't named after the food, he should be. Or he should at least publicly recognize its awesomeness.
