May is National Hamburger Month and what better way for Sacramento, CA, one of themost Twitter connected cities, to celebrate than with #sacburgermonth
What is #sacburgermonth?
You can get the full details at sacburgermonth.com, but here’s the highlights:
Think of it as a celebration of all things hamburger in our wonderful city of trees.
We’ve teamed up with the chefs at de Vere’s Irish Pub in Sacramento to bring you 4 amazing weekly Featured Burgersand some fun giveaways (including a digital camera giveaway from BurgerJunkies.com)!
(each premium burger comes with fries and a carefully selected beer pairing for just $15)
Week 1: Sunday May 1 – Saturday May 7
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 is 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)
Week 2: Sunday May 8 – Saturday May 14
The Firestone Burger
This juicy cheeseburger is cooked in a red wine, shallots, and balsamic vinegar based sauce that gives it a powerful 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.
Week 3: Sunday May 15 – Saturday May 21
The Stadium Burger
Local sports fans, this one is for you! 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 chef’s 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.
Week 4: Sunday May 22- Saturday May 28
