Bacon Brewfest 2016

Our Bacon and tomato polenta crust pie

Our Bacon and tomato polenta crust pie

After the runaway success of the inaugural Bacon Festival last year, Newtown café Cuckoo Callay is all set to lay on another celebration of all things bacon and beer. In support of Australian Pork, this Saturday's Bacon Brewfest showcases more ways to prepare all-Australian pork than anyone could possibly imagine, while also heralding a 12-week bacon menu at Cuckoo Callay.

A group of cured-pork enthusiasts will unite for the day, including Newtown's Black Star Pastry and the team from boutique cheese bar, The Stinking Bishops. You can also look forward to sampling Grumpy Donuts' maple bacon doughnut bars with American-style candied bacon, and the Porky Pig burger - twice-cooked pork belly, sauerkraut, fried onion and crisp bacon - by Josh Arthurs, founder of pop-up burger joint, Burgers by Josh.

Craft beer will flow from the likes of 4 Pines Brewing Company, Willie the Boatman, Batch Brewing Co and others, accompanied by a musical line-up including Sydney band The Cope Street Parade and Central Coast singer/songwriter Jacob Pearson.

Bacon Brewfest, 27 February, noon-9pm, Central Park, 28 Broadway, Chippendale, NSW. Tickets are $30 plus a booking fee. Tickets are available until sold out from the festival's website.
