The San Francisco Bacon and Beef Festival will be held for the first time this August to raise money for the Sprout Cooking Club.

San Francisco will host the city’s first Bacon and Beer Festival on August 25 at the Fairmont Hotel SF.

The festival will feature more than 45 Bay Area restaurants and breweries. More than 25 local chefs and butchers from establishments including Haven, Nojo, and Fatted Calf will be creating their best bacon dishes from bacon provided by Zoe’s Meats. The beer will come from more than 20 local breweries such as Speakeasy, Knee Deep, and Drake

All the proceeds from the event will go towards the Sprouts Cooking Club, a local organization that works to teach kids how to cook with the help of real chefs in real restaurants.

The event was originally held in Boston four years ago by Eat Boston. It is coming to the Bay Area in partnership with Bison Organic Beer. The Denver Bacon and Beer Festival started in 2012 and sold out a week before the event. Between the two, almost $100K has been raised for local food related non-profits.
