Beer, Bacon and Bourbon — oh my!

Williamson County Convention & Visitors Bureau
Beer, Bacon and Bourbon — three words that still the heart of the most steadfast Southerner.
Now, all we need is a festival honoring all three!
            Well, shut my mouth, if Franklin, Tenn., hasn’t organized one.
            The first, Beer Bacon and Bourbon will take place Saturday, March 5, at The Factory at Franklin, featuring top local craft brewed beers, various bacon-themed hors d'oeuvres and the finest Southern bourbon. It will also host a first-of-its-kind “Tennessee Home Brew Exhibition,” which will give guests the opportunity to try home-brewed beers from across the Tennessee and award a “people’s choice” winner. Tickets to Beer Bacon & Bourbon are $75 and can be purchased online at
            Franklin, Tenn., is a quaint town located just outside Nashville, home to great shopping in the historic downtown district, music venues, Arrington Vineyards and the site of the Civil War’s Battle of Franklin. It’s also a stop on the Natchez Trace Parkway and the Americana Music Triangle.

  1. This is the best function room in the city. The food they served at venues in NYC was warm, fresh and tasty, and the panoramic window is a sight to behold on a clear day. Their main hall was similar to a club/lounge – however, it had more of an intimate feel.
