8:00 – 10:00 pm – 2013 Denver Bacon Beer Cocktail 

Closing out the 2013 Bacon and Beer Festival, Industry Denver invites the festival’s bounty of chefs, brewers, and bacon and beer lovers back to Session Kitchen for the official after-gathering, But the official after-gathering isn’t the last spectacle of the 2013 Bacon and Beer Weekend, that’s not nearly enough.

We at Industry Denver couldn’t help but add an element of excitement to the gathering, so we invited eight creatively inspired bartenders to compete head to head in a light-hearted Iron Chef-style cocktail competition that begins at 8:00 pm. 2013 Denver Bacon Beer Cocktail will require competing bartenders to build cocktails out of Bacon in Round-1, Beer in Round-2, and Bacon and Beer in Round-3. Made possible by cordial spirit of Fernet-Branca and the Tennessee Whiskies of George Dickel, only one competitor will be named champion after a back-to-back-to-back series of wins through three rounds. Geared up to clink their shakers, we are proud to announce our lineup of bacon and beer creatives.
