2023 has arrived and with it comes the eighth annual Three Rivers Brew & Bacon Festival. For the uninitiated, this gastronomic extravaganza has become one of the Tri-Cities’ most popular winter events in recent years, uniting beer and bacon enthusiasts from throughout the region. The event is sponsored by Perfection Glass, a popular Kennewick window installation service based in the Tri-City area. They’ve been serving the community for years keeping our windows in perfect condition, and now they’re putting their weight behind this growing annual tradition.
During the festivities, a number of local brewers offer a wide variety of craft beers, ciders, and wines. These beverages are paired with unique and inventive takes on bacon dishes prepared by local restaurants and eateries, keeping the rotating menu fresh year after year. Caterers and restauranteurs will compete for the ultimate prize of $1,000 and the coveted Best Bacon Bite Award. With live entertainment slotted throughout the evening, this year’s Brew & Bacon Festival is expected to be one for the history books, drawing in more eventgoers than ever before. Be sure to plan in advance in order to ensure yourself a place at the event, as spots will likely fill out fast.
