Bacon Brew & Que is moving locations for 2017 but this year's event will take place indoors for the first time.

The Tuscaloosa River Market on Jack Warner Parkway will host Bacon Brew & Que on Saturday, August 26. With hot temperatures and pop-up thunderstorms a common part of summer in west Alabama, the event will take the beer and food tasting into a temperature-controlled facility.

That's just one of the big changes coming to the fourth Bacon Brew & Que. For the first time ever, the event will also include barbecue dishes along with bacon dishes. Local restaurants will have the chance to bring out either - or both - and serve samples throughout the afternoon. Check out last year's 'People's Choice' winner for best dish.

This year will also feature a greater variety of beer choices. Not only will you be able to try the three local Tuscaloosa breweries, but some of the best breweries around the state will be featured along with select national brands.
