I hit Chef Luke with the idea and he loved it too. We decided to go with a one pounder topped with the best Finger Lakes ingredients and maybe some beer in the mix. Go big or go home...I asked Jerry, long time server, manager ,and talented writer, to come up with a name which embraced our roguish heritage and maybe mentioned the beer component. He did not disappoint.
E, Chef Luke, Jerry and our brewer, Chris make a good team. Here's what we came up with: a one pound Angus burger steamed in our Route 34 Red Ale and topped with beer braised NY apples, onions, bacon, melted Bier Meck cheese (Finger Lakes Farmstead) on a pretzel roll. We're calling it the Red Beer'd Burger.
So, get in here and try it. You'll love it. We're hoping you'll nominate it for the best burger in the Finger Lakes on NYS Beef Council's submission site! (That's the link before the "!" You only have till March 15th).
