Brewsky’s brings home the bacon at the 2019 Star City BaconFest
Lincoln, NE (April 2019) —
Nebraska Restaurant Association (NRA) member Brewsky’s captured bacon enthusiasts’ first place votes at this year’s BaconFest held April 7 at Lincoln’s Cornhusker Marriot Hotel. Brian Waller, Brando Garratt, Trevor Scholz and Akim Tran, Brewsky team members, wowed the crowd with their Sweet & Spicy Sliders – seasoned slow smoked pork injected with apple cider topped with Granny Smith Apple Coleslaw, diced candied Jalapeno Bacon and a Raspberry Bullet Bourbon Jam entrée.
Second place went to Hurts Donut for its Mini Maple Bacon Long John. Smoking gun Jerky came in third for its Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Bacon, Maple & Cracked Black Pepper and Hawaiian Jerky.
Well over 600 bacon enthusiasts enjoyed gourmet treats crafted by leading Lincoln-area restaurants and a creative high school team from the Papillion LaVista South High School ProStart program. Sponsored by the Nebraska Pork Producers Association and the Nebraska Restaurant Association proceeds from the event will provide $9,000 in scholarships to culinary students.
