The 2nd annual Beer and Bacon Fest will be held at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs and will have over 30 craft beers from places such as Sweet Water, Goose Island, Magic Hat, Blue Point, Florida Beer Company, Kona Brewing Company, Red Hook, Shock Top, Victory and Woodchuck.

To compliment the craft beers, a variety of bacon will also be available to taste.

Honey maple bacon, salted maple bacon, double fudge bacon, chocolate covered bacon, pulled pork with bacon and French fries with a beer and cheese sauce and bacon bits are just some of the delicious bacon items you will be able to purchase from 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Cupcake Crazy, Little Lamb Catering & Events, Omaha Steakhouse, The Hammered Lamb, Miller’s Ale House, Whole Foods Market and Catering’s Best.

The event and restaurants will open at 3:00 p.m. and the beer sampling will start at 4:00 p.m. General admission is free, however, the tickets that include the unlimited beer sampling are $25 pre sale or $35 at gate. While supplies last, a complimentary koozie with your ticket purchase.

After the Beer and Bacon Fest, the Miller’s Alehouse in Altamonte Springs (477 E. Altamonte Dr. in front of the Altamonte Mall) will have many of the same beers served at the festival for $1 off each beer at the official “After Party.”
