When you first walk in, you’ll notice that the ballpark has transformed into a bacon and beer haven, with the big screens displaying phrases such as “Wish you were beer,” and “Pig out!”

You’ll also see multiple Instagrammable art installations scattered about, each with its own witty saying and food-themed imagery.

Make sure to pick up your reusable beer cup, and venture out into the endless array of tents. With over a hundred craft beers to sample, remember to pace yourself and stop by the food tables, too. Over 35 dishes from local Seattle chefs will be available for taste, all of them including bacon.

After each beer, take note of your thoughts and cast a vote to crown the 2020 Bacon and Beer Classic Champion, the best of the lot. In Seattle, the winners for 2019 were the following:
