On Tuesday, June 19, Back Beach Barbecue commemorates its one-year anniversary with the inaugural Hog Bash. From 2 to 9 PM, guests are invited to enjoy two whole hog roasts, live music by Kevin Melvin, giveaways, and refreshments provided by local breweries Grayton Beer Company and Idyll Hounds. Proceeds from the afternoon will benefit South Walton Academy.
Back Beach Barbecue opened its doors in June 2017 and is owned and operated by Danny and Monica Cosenzi, the duo behind the famed Restaurant Paradis located in Rosemary Beach. Since opening, Back Beach Barbecue has served locals and visitors alike from their simple yet refined menu of slow-cooked meats, homemade sides and sauces, as well as gluten-free options.
Back Beach Barbecue has partnered with Restaurant Paradis—along with Buddy’s Seafood, Grayton Beer Company, and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company—for the event. Each sponsor will provide food, refreshments, and various raffle prizes. Every attendee will be entered into the raffle upon arrival, and winners will be announced throughout the day.
Back Beach Barbecue will donate a portion of the proceeds to South Walton Academy, a private, nonprofit inclusion school in Santa Rosa Beach. The school serves all children up to the 6th grade while working to bridge the gap between communication and children with Autism.
For $15, guests will receive a plate filled with pulled pork, barbeque baked beans, and coleslaw. Back Beach will be roasting two whole pigs beginning at 2 PM, and Mr. Melvin performs from 5 to 8 PM.
