Two great tastes that taste great together — bacon and beer — make up the menu at the annual Bacon and Beer Classic, returning to Citi Field on April 25 while the Mets are playing the Yankees up north in the Bronx. More than one hundred craft brews will be available, along with more than fifty bacon-inclusive dishes from local restaurants. There will also be workshops, demonstrations, live music, interactive games, a DJ, and other activities. Among the participating breweries are Broken Bow, Two Roads, Central Waters, Thirsty Dog, Knee Deep, the Radiant Pig, Elysian, River Horse, and Angry Orchard, while bacon delicacies will be served by City Crab, Landhaus, Route 66 Smoke House, Pig Guy NYC, Bamboo Bites, BarBacon, Ribs Within, BacoBurger, Carnal, and others. There are two sessions, one for brunch and one for dinner, with VIP tickets gaining you early admission, as well as access to the warning track and dugouts. If you’re not an imbiber, you can get in for a mere $29 for food and nonalcoholic beverages; otherwise, ticket packages range from $59 to $129. In addition there will be various awards given out by a panel of judges consisting of Liza De Guia, Lisa Fernandes, Derrick Prince, Adam Poch, and David “the Rev” Cancio.
