The producers of the popular event, The Bacon & Beer Festival, together with The North Dakota Pork Council and Bernie’s are bringing to Fargo The Pig & The Pint, An Evening of Swine Dining. Six locally-owned restaurants will each be given one whole hog, one week to prepare it and assigned a local brewery to collaborate on culinary-creative suds and swine pairings.
The Pig & The Pint is a semi-formal evening of informal indulgence. Space is limited to ensure an intimate evening with local chefs, brew masters and an abundance of assorted suds and swine. The participating restaurants and breweries are Fargo Brewing Co., Drekker Brewing Co., Junkyard Brewing Co., HoDo, Toasted Frog, Usher’s House, Luna, Rustica and Monte’s. Further support is by Hatch Realty.
“We’ve had tremendously positive feedback from our Bacon and Beer Festivals,” Jade Nielsen of Jade Presents said. “We want to present the area with a new event that showcases the community’s unique talents in both the culinary and brewing worlds.”
