On Saturday crowds poured into the DeltaPlex to honor and sample the two most delicious substances on the planet: bacon and beer!

GRD was proud to be a part of the 2nd annual BaCon, a bacon and beer celebration! This year's delectable dishes and drinks included chicken-fried bacon, bacon vodka and bloody mary bar, braised pork-belly tacos, creme brulee with beer and candied bacon, bourbon-bacon-cheddar cheese fondue, bacon stout, bacon corn dogs with spicy mustard, bacon-wrapped jalapenos, even maple-and-bacon glazed doughnuts!

Check out this year's winners and photos of the bacon-tastic festivities!

Congrats to the winners!

Daddy Pete's BBQ-- The Fine Swine Award (Voted Best Dish by Public)
McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon-- The Sueyeet Eats Award ( Voted Most Creative by Sponsor, Creswick Farms )
Honey Creek Inn-- Top Hog (Most Sample Tickets Collected)

Thank you to all who came out to partake in the bacon and beer goodness! And thanks to all of the restaurants and breweries who supplied it!
