More Bacon: Bacon and Beer Brewers and Chefs Dinner


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens might be a few things some people list as their favorites, but when it comes to Denver Off The Wagon, bacon and beer take the top spots. We have already shared with you the details of the third annual Denver Bacon and Beer Festival (tickets are still available), but if you want an entire weekend to fill your belly with our favorite things you should also check out the second annual Denver Bacon and Beer Brewers and Chefs Dinner.

The second annual Denver Bacon and Beer Brewers and Chefs Dinner is taking place on Saturday, November 15th at The Lobby (2191 Arapahoe St. Denver CO 80205) from 6 – 9 p.m. This dinner will feature a five course meal prepared by five different local chefs paired with beer from five different Denver area breweries.
