Beer, Bourbon and Bacon is back! It's one of my favorite events of the year that I always look forward to. I mean really, who doesn't like Beer, Bourbon or Bacon? All three of them together? That's the trifecta. Clear your calendar for Beer, Bourbon and Bacon 2016 on June 18th at the Dutchess County fairgrounds in Rhinebeck.


What better way to get ready for the festival than by learning what Bacon pairs best with what type of Beer. I've done some extensive research and here's what I've found. VinePair.Com is one of my favorite websites (seriously check them out during Halloween, they pair wine and Halloween candy) and they've broken it down for us.
