2012 Boston Bacon and Beer Festival - Saturday, April 28th 2:30PM-5PM

Kicking off 2012 Boston Bacon and Beer Week, the 2012 Boston Bacon and Beer Festival will be Saturday, April 28th from 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM at  the House of Blues Boston. Restaurants and purveyors from all over will be preparing their tastiest bacon based dishes for you to sample paired with beers from New England's greatest breweries. If that's not a good enough way to spend a Saturday afternoon, you should know that it's also a benefit for the local hunger relief organizations Lovin' Spoonfuls and Community Servings. Your ticket gets you in to Bacon and Beer Fest where you'll be able to sample the dishes and the beer. There will be other people there with the same intention, so remember to share.
