Best Burger in New York State!!!

The Rogues' Harbor Inn been known to grill a burger or two. In fact, one of the foods we're known for is burgers and more recently our own craft brewed beer. We love serving up good, fresh food prepared from locally sourced ingredients. So, when my husband found an article in the paper about the best burger in New York State contest sponsored by the New York State Beef Council, it seemed tailor made for us and we decided to design a new, really big burger just the occasion.
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).
Mouth-watering, One pound, Red Beer'd Burger
