Bourbon, Beer & Bacon
The inaugural Bourbon, Beer & Bacon event is set to take place on April, 25 from 2-10 PM. This will be a great opportunity for members of the community to come out to the Fluid Event Center in Champaign, IL and sample hundreds of different bourbons, ryes, and scotch's, local and regional craft beer, as well as enjoy food inspired by bacon. This event is directed to members of the community who have a passion for bourbon, beer and bacon. We plan to feature 100+ types of whiskey and 30+ types of beer for sample. April 25th is also one of Champaign's largest tourism days where tens of thousands of runners and their families visit Champaign for the Illinois Marathon. We are looking to give these people something to do at the completion of the marathon activities as well as something for those who have no interest in the marathon at all.
Although this is a first time event, Fluid Events has a successful resume in creating and developing successful events. After opening up a new event center to host events, they have put on concerts, banquets and parties here for nearly 3 years. In addition, they have two annual events, Blues, Brews and BBQ and the Haunt at Bonesaw Mill which continue to grow each year.
Volunteers will be needed in two separate 5 hours shifts throughout the event. The first shift will start at 1 PM and help assist with set up as well as the first half of serving the event. The second shift will help serve the second half of the event and assist with clean-up of the event. When serving, volunteers will pour samples from hundreds of different types of beer and whiskey to attendees of the event. Some may also be involved in helping the facilitation of the Bacon Eating Contest. Volunteers must be 18 years old to serve and volunteers 21 older will have the opportunity to do some sampling of their own. All volunteers will receive their choice of a free shot glass or beer sampler glass with the event logo!
