Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival & Left Hand Brewery

The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival, recognized as the “Mecca of all baconfests”, takes place annually in Des Moines, IA.  Organized and promoted by the Iowa Bacon Board, the one-of-a-kind celebration offers participants: extensive bacon sampling, bacon lectures, bacon-inspired dishes, bacon competitions, an annual bacon queen, bacon awards, live entertainment and bacon fellowship.


Left Hand Brewery is one of the most honored and recognized breweries in the state, with over 21 Great American Beer Festival medals, 9 World Beer Cup awards, and 6 European Beer Star awards. Famous for their Nitro series, Left Hand Brewery was the first craft brewery to release a bottled Nitrogenated beer.  Left Hand’s collection of perennial and seasonal beers are available in 28 states. “Sometimes you’re not in the mood for what everyone else is having.”
