If you’re unfamiliar with this annual pork and hops bacchanalia, hosted by National Harbor and sponsored by the Heavy Seas brewery, then gird your arteries. There are two sessions, from noon to 4 p.m. and again from 5 to 9 p.m., where you will sample more types of bacon than you knew existed -- duck bacon, bourbon-flavored bacon, juniper bacon, jalapeno bacon. And then there’s the beer, more than 10 Heavy Seas offerings, including the seasonal Winter Storm Category 5 Ale.
Tickets are $70. Is it worth it? That depends on how much you like having others prepare products you can fairly easily reproduce on your own. If you don’t feel like shelling out, I’d suggest 3 Bar and Grill, a place that knows a thing or two about bacon and beer.
