Sunday August 25 marked the first annual San Francisco Bacon + Beer Festival.

I was there to help out The Beer Wench and the Bison Brewing crew but there was plenty of time to get some tasty samples!

Bison Brewing

Bison Brewing Company’s setup

The beer list was impressive (21st Amendment, Alaskan Brewing Co., Green Flash, Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, Stone Brewing Co. – see the full list here).

Alaskan Brewing Company had their smoked porter which I’m not a fan of but it would make some excellent beer chicken!

Bison’s Honey Basil Ale is awesome! Also, Hop Cuvee which is Bison’s version of a West Coast Ale. Awesome stuff from Dan + his team!

Stone was serving up some R&R Coconut IPA, a collaboration brew that was surprisingly delicious coming from someone that hates coconut.

My favorite + most fitting for the occasion was the Brown Bacon Ale from Uncommon Brewers. It certainly didn’t hurt that Alec had his keg right next to us during the event!


If you saw me at the event, I was helping hand out some awesome Maple Bacon potato chips from Kettle.

If you were at the event I’d love to know what your favorite beers were! To read more about the event check out Eat Boston‘s website.
