Being a Chicago Bears fan might be rough this year, but there are two things that can always help you keep your chin up: bacon and beer. Luckily you can make it to Soldier Field this weekend and enjoy all the bacon and beer you can stuff your face with at the Bacon and Beer Classic.
After a popular first year where the Bacon and Beer Classic visited iconic ballparks and stadiums across the country serving up mouthwatering bacon and hop-filled craft beers, the festival has expanded this year and is making a stop at Soldier Field. Not only is the festival filled with America’s favorite liquid and solid but there is also music, interactive games, educational opportunities, photo booths, and more. We have a lot of bacon and beer festivals in Chicago and what makes this one different from the others, besides the fact that you get to enjoy Soldier Field’s concourse levels and seating, is that you only pay one price and get all you can eat and drink for three hours without having to buy anything else.
You can expect creative bacon bites from local restaurants as well as brews from Tallgrass Brewing Company, Motor Row Brewing, Coronado Brewing Company, and more.
The Bacon and Beer Classic will take place Sat. Oct. 10 with a session from 1 – 4 p.m. and one at 7 – 10 p.m. at Soldier Field located at 1410 S. Museum Campus Dr. Tickets are $59 for general admission and $99 for VIP, where you get in to the session an hour early. For more information visit baconandbeerclassic.com.
