Bacon & Beer Classic Provides Venue for Beer, Bacon

This Saturday, February 25, Levi’s Stadium will be filled with aficionados of beer and bacon for the Bacon & Beer Classic.

The event features over 30 bacon-infused dishes from local restaurants and food trucks, and more than 100 beers from craft breweries, such as Anchor, Lagunitas and San Mateo County’s own Devil’s Canyon.

Those 100 beers are a great reason to plan on using Caltrain to get you to and from the event. Eventgoers can catch Caltrain to the Mountain View Station, and from there can take either the VTA 822 or 902 to Levi’s Stadium.

There will be two runs, an afternoon session from 1p.m. to 4p.m. and an evening session from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system; tickets are not sold onboard trains but can be purchased at ticket vending machines at the stations. Riders are encouraged to purchase an adult joint Caltrain/VTA Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines after the show. The pass costs $6 more than the regular adult Caltrain Day Pass, but it is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train of the day, and until 3 a.m. on VTA.

Customers using Clipper e-cash receive a 15 percent discount for each one-way trip. Clipper cash value and 8-ride Ticket customers must tag on at their origin station and again at their destination station. Those transferring to VTA Light rail need to tag on at a VTA Clipper machine before boarding VTA light rail. VTA payment is good for two hours and does not require tagging off at the destination station.

For fare and schedule information, visit www.caltrain.com or call 1.800.660.4287 (TTY 650.508.6448.)

Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.
