Everything is better with BACON! The Essen Haus is hosting their 4th annual outdoor tasting event from 3-6 p.m. on Sunday, April 28. Expect 16 unique bacon recipes, such as candied bacon, bacon-wrapped meatballs and bacon cinnamon rolls, along with beer from Karben4 and free live music from John "Elvis" Lyons.

Bacon tasting tickets will be available at the door for $1 each, or you can purchase a pack of 12 tickets for $10.

The outdoor bier caddy will feature several selections from Karben4, including Bacon's Best Friend (BBF). The alt-inspired ale is fermented on whiskey-soaked oak and engineered to pair perfectly with bacon. Seriously, Karben4 concocted this brew just for Bacon Fest.

Visit the event website to view bacon recipes and additional details. Prost!
