The second annual Sip & Swine BBQ Festival took place at Coolray Field over the first weekend of March, and we were so excited to be the title sponsor of the event! Sip & Swine is a two-day BBQ festival and competition, and the goal of the event—besides eating some great BBQ—is to fundraise for the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter.
