Baconfest 2017 • So Sizzling!

Our annual Baconfest, Jan. 28-29, isn’t just an excuse to indulge in 25+ bacon-licious recipes and products throughout the store. It’s a true celebration of this food that has risen to celebrity status!

Our love affair with bacon runs deep, which is why we decided to dedicate a whole weekend to it when Baconfest was launched four years ago. And each year, it just gets better and more bacon-y than the year before. What’s to love about Baconfest? Here are a few things:

Bacon Everything. As you enter our doors, just follow your nose to a variety of tantalizing bacon treats awaiting you in every nook and cranny. The best part? You’re invited to try them all! Think Bacon Cheddar Pull-Apart Bread, Salted Bourbon Chocolate Bacon, Maple Bacon Baby Cake, and DLM Maple Bacon Gelato. Plus, we’ll have many more products to choose from to take home where bacon is the shining star.

Bacon and Beer. What else is better with bacon? Why beer, of course. We’ve partnered with our friends at Crooked Handle Brewing Co., located in Springboro, for a limited edition Baconfest brew that we like to call Dig the Pig Porter. Our friends there at the brewery have made this brew just for Baconfest and it’ll be flowing from the taps at DLM and Crooked Handle during Baconfest.

The Bacon Lounge. Also new this year at Baconfest is our Bacon Lounge, located in each store’s Beer & Wine department, where you can kick back and enjoy your favorite brew. We’ll be having a special beer pairing with our DLM Uncured Bacon flavors (think Hickory-Smoked, Applewood-Smoked, and Peppered bacon).

Flying Pig Marathon Sign-ups. Last, but not least, our good friends from the Flying Pig Marathon will be coming back to register runners for their 2017 event and to answer questions.

So if you dig the pig, join us at Baconfest 2017 where we’ll be bringing our bacon A-game. Want to learn more about the many kinds of Bacon? Read the article "Know Your Bacon!"
