It’s a month-long party in honor of the patty! May is National Hamburger Month, and since we’re all about promoting burger awareness, we go big all month. Each week in May, the fine chefs at de Vere’s Irish Pub showcase a unique burger masterpiece that is available for that week only.
Sac Burger Month (or hashtag #sacburgermonth on Twitter) is a joint effort between de Vere’s Irish Pub and BurgerJunkies.com (a burger review blog).
Past Sacramento Burger Month specials:
Tostada Burger at de Vere’s Irish Pub
Served on a lightly toasted, locally baked bun from The Grateful Bread, this freshly double-ground beef burger is topped with a crispy tostada and corn pico de gallo salsa con queso. The burger itself sits on another layer of the house made salsa, a nice red tomato slice, and another tostada layer to give it a great crunch. For an added kick, the buns are lightly spread with a made-from-scratch Serrano chili mayonnaise.
This burger was paired with a classic Corona beer during Cinco de Mayo week, where de Vere’s will be celebrating the Batallón de San Patricio (aka Drinko de Mayo).
The Firestone Burger
Firestone Burger at de Vere’s Irish Pub
This juicy cheeseburger is cooked and served in a red wine, shallots, and balsamic-vinegar based sauce that gives it a powerfully sweet-and-tangy flavor. The double-ground smoked beef patty is infused with smoked pork and topped with bacon, smoked cheddar goat cheese, and fried onions. This flavorful burger is served on a lightly toasted, locally sourced, freshly baked bun.
We paired this burger with an Abbey ale from New Belgium Brewery out of Colorado. The chocolatey undertones allow this beer to hold its own with the smokiness of the Firestone Burger.
The Stadium Burger
This double-ground beef patty is stuffed with 1.5 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese, coated with whole grain mustard, and smothered with a house-made relish containing delicious peppadews. The chefs searched far and wide for the perfect soft pretzel bun to compliment this beautiful burger creation.
Henry personally selected an organic wheat beer that goes perfectly with the pickled peppered flavors that top this burger. Mothership Wit from New Belgium Brewery is brewed with wheat and barley malt, as well as coriander and orange peel spicing, resulting in a balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation.
