If you love bacon, then you would have loved Baconfest 2016 in Asheville North Carolina! We stopped by Highland Brewing Company this past Saturday for the event, grabbed some beer, and started baconing it out. Starting at the VIP, we had some delicious tastes from Luella’s Barbecue, and yummy cupcakes from The Bake Shoppe.
We then headed out into the field, where many other restaurants and vendors were featured. And all of it was delicious. A few places really stuck out to us in a great way, namely The Colorful Palate, Iron Hen Cafe, Whole Foods, and Chicken Salad Chick. Unfortunately some restaurants like Ambrozia, Strada, and Ay Caramba only had enough food to last the first hour, so many of us missed out on trying their foods.
On the way out, we stopped by the “Sweet Spot” inside of Highland Brewing, and got to try some cake from The Blackbird and also maple bacon ice cream from 550 Tavern & Grille. Now I’m looking forward to Asheville Baconfest 2017!
