Nearly 500 people came out to the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on a crisp, cool November afternoon for the first Bacon & Brewfest and enjoyed a selection of bacon and beer from more than 25 vendors.

Along with all of the food and drink, the day also included a beard and mustache contest, a raffle from Greene Beverage, the Homebrewers Association, and a year's worth of free bacon given away.

Make sure you check out the event's Facebook page to see which beer and bacon dishes the people picked as their favorite. The choices were amazing and show you how creative and skilled many of the local restaurants in our area are.

Townsquare Media and Greene Beverage want to thank everyone for being a part of the first Bacon & Brewfest. Keep an eye out for details on the next one!

And in case you were wondering who won a year of free bacon from Zeigler Meats, we have a video of the big announcement. Thanks again for making year one a huge success!
