Bacon Brew & Que returns to Tuscaloosa this weekend October 5th at Government Plaza and tickets are still available for the sixth annual event.  Hey, theres no Alabama game so if you're looking for something to do this might be right up your bacon.

The bacon festivities will take place in beautiful Government Plaza on 6th Street downtown, and this year's event will be bigger and better than ever.

Many local bacon loving Tuscaloosa restaurants and other vendors will have tent space along the perimeter of the park's green space and breweries from all over Alabama and the country will set up in the middle to offer samples of their finest beers.

This year the gates will open at 2 p.m. and ticket-buyers can sample all the bacon and barbecue they want until the tasting period ends at 6 p.m.  After that all the bacon is shipped to a remote location with a 24 foot pontoon boat waiting.  By 8p.m. myself and Steve Shannon, Don Hartley, Captain Ray, and the vessels real Captain John Ramey,  are eating all the leftovers in the middle of Lake Tuscaloosa on (a wonderful smelling) pontoon boat. #WildBillShow #YayBacon

General admission tickets cost $49.99, and anyone who is more interested in the food than the beers can buy a special Designated Driver ticket for just $19.99.
