You read that correctly, Bostonians. BACON and BEER. The PB&J of the adult world. In honor of this culinary tag-team, Eat Boston and The Fenway are hosting the Boston Bacon and Beer Festival June 7th from 2:30-5PM, in support of Community Servings and Lovin’ Spoonfuls.

Folks, this is the big one. The whole top floor of the Landmark Center parking structure near the Fenway T stop will be turned into a veritable bonanza of meat and wheat. Over 60 restaurants and brewers are participating– you can find the full list here. If you’ve been slacking on finding your favorite local brew, now is your chance to get your sample on.
