The Beer BBQ Bacon Showdown is New Jersey’s only festival to feature only New Jersey Craft Beer, coupled with New Jersey restaurants, gourmet food trucks and chefs, offering a delectable array of mouth watering BBQ and bacon creations, all available for purchase. There will be a competition to showcase their culinary skills, with a panel of celebrity judges choosing the best of the best, along with People’s Choice awards for Best Dish and Best Beer.
30 New Jersey Breweries will be in attendance, each bringing four styles of beer. One of these styles will be either a rare beer or a brew created specifically for this event. A fantastic VIP hour sponsored by New Jersey Craft Beer. Not only do you get first crack at all the beer and food but you get an extra hour at the event, an incredible VIP buffet created by our celebrity chef. The event will take place outdoors and under tents, with some fantastic music by Street Hassle and the Brass Balls.
