THE BACON AND BEER CLASSIC Comes to Jersey City for the First Time on 10/3
The nationally-touring Bacon and Beer Classic will head across the Hudson River for the first time ever, taking over Harborside (210 Hudson Street) in Jersey City on Thursday, October 3rd. This all you can eat and drink fest coincides with Oktoberfest, making it a must attend for beer aficionados. The event will feature over-the-top bacon dishes, creative craft beers, on-site activations, contests and more. Guests will be invited to snap selfies in a Hormel® Black Label Bacon photo booth, compete in a bacon eating contest with a chance to win a year's supply of Hormel® Black Label Bacon, play flip cup, ride a bacon seesaw and take home a commemorative souvenir tasting glass.
25 local restaurants will serve up original savory dishes and desserts that give bacon a whole new meaning. New Jersey eateries including Queen's Bully, Sands Jerk Hut, Marcha Cocina, and Jase's BBQ are confirmed to participate. Wash it all down with 65+ beers and ciders from breweries like Hackensack Brewing, Hokkaido Brewery, and Bolero Snort Brewery. Vote for your favorite restaurant and brewery using the Bacon and Beer Classic app and winners will be crowned at the end of the event.
The Bacon and Beer Classic is produced by Cannonball Productions, which is owned and operated by Jersey City resident Kate Levenstien. The event sells out in professional sports stadiums and arenas coast-to-coast with recent stops at CHS Field in Minneapolis and T-Mobile Park in Seattle before heading to Soldier Field in Chicago this October.
Tickets are all-inclusive, which means guests can sample bacon and beer for the duration of the event without ever having to take out their wallets. Choose from three ticket types: General Admission, Power Hour, or VIP. General Admission tickets begin at $49 and VIP tickets top out at $89. There will be one session from 7pm-10pm.
