Not Your Regular Breakfast Bacon
This isn’t your average bacon right off the griddle. Think of it as bacon with a twist. Take candied bourbon bacon, for instance. This is a hit at Denver’s Bourbon and Bacon Fest since it combines both of the “B’s” and is incredibly tasty.
That’s just one of the countless bacon items you’ll find here. There are so many creative options that you’ll never think of bacon the same way again.
