Baconfest Chicago 2017 is honored to have Breakthru Beverage Illinois back as a sponsor. Last year’s “mega bar” was so mega-successful that it’s back with a vengeance! This year, it features these and other brands: Clyde Mays Bourbon Whiskey, Corazón Tequila, Dickel Tennessee Whisky, Hendrick’s Gin and Templeton Rye 6, plus beer from Ballast Point. If that impressive array doesn’t wet your whistle, we don’t know what will. These guys really know their cocktails, and we can’t wait to see what they’re planning to serve you, Bacon Nation!
