THE BACON AND BEER CLASSIC RETURNS IN A NEWLY IMAGINED, SOCIALLY DISTANCED, FORMAT AT THE KENNEDY GOLF COURSE ON MAY 22ND
This Annual Event That Previously Took Place at Mile High Stadium is Taking on a New Structure This Year and Hitting the Green
Denver, CO (April 12, 2021) – Cannonball Productions will bring its highly acclaimed Bacon and Beer Classic back to Denver on Saturday, May 22nd. The Classic, which was known for taking over professional sports stadiums in previous years, will hit the green for the first time, heading to Kennedy Golf Course with no actual golfing involved. The Bacon and Beer Classic offers attendees a unique, all-inclusive experience at a truly epic tasting event.
The newly formatted event will look a bit different than the traditional Classic. In order to maintain social distance, there will be small group time slots every 10 minutes. Everyone will walk from hole to hole in a one-way flow. Each hole will feature a few breweries, different Hormel® Black Label® Bacon strip flavors and a local restaurant serving up a hearty bacon dish. The one-way tasting trail will take approximately 2.5 hours and once guests reach the last hole, they will vote for their favorite brews & dishes as they exit the venue!
From savory to spicy to sweet, ticket holders will experience bacon like never before. Denver restaurants including– Breckenridge Brewery and Flying Pig Burger Co. – will serve up their most original bacon dishes. Past dishes have included New England Style Clam and Bacon Chowder, Korean Pork Belly in Bacon Cups, and Bacon Cinnamon Rolls with Stout Icing. Wash down that tasty grub with samples of over 40 craft beers from local and regional breweries including Odell Brewing Company, Rails End Beer Company, Hogshead Brewery, and Pug Ryan’s Brewery from a commemorative Bacon and Beer Classic ceramic cup.
This Bacon and Beer Classic will offer attendees new activities in addition to old favorites. In between bites and sips, guests will be able to let loose, try out the bacon seesaw and play lawn games. Guests are able to socially distance in small groups and spread out across each the fairways, while experiencing a one-of-a-kind, immersive experience.
Safety is a primary focus of this event. Here are some of the precautions attendees can expect:
Vendors and staff will be wearing masks and protective gloves with regular hand-washing. The public is also encouraged to wash hands frequently, use hand sanitizer, and wear a face mask while not sampling.
Attendees within different time slots must maintain at least six feet of space between each other, and vendors will also be spaced out accordingly to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
As always, tickets are all-inclusive, which means guests can sample bacon and beer throughout the tasting trail without ever taking out their wallets. Choose from two ticket types: General Admission or VIP. General Admission tickets begin at $49 and span to $69 for VIP. All attendees will indulge in 8 gourmet bacon dishes, 2 sweet treats, a Hormel® Black Label® Bacon Egg Bite or Breakfast Combo kit, 8+ bacon strip flavors spread out throughout the course, and 40+ craft beers and ciders. VIP ticket holders will get to choose from premier time slots (11am – 12:30pm) and receive everything included in GA, plus a pork belly tasting, specialty cocktail, and a coupon for a package of Hormel® Black Label® Bacon. All tickets include a commemorative tasting glass that you’ll never want to toss. Tickets for this event will drop on Thursday, April 15th at 10am Mountain Time at www.baconandbeerclassic.com
