This Bud’s for St. Louis Burger Lovers:
Nothing brings out the taste of a burger like a crisp, refreshing Budweiser and that’s why the King of Beers launched the search to find the King of Burgers. This spring, amateur chefs in 10 cities competed in head-to-head in burger battles as part of the Bud & Burgers Championship and now a winner will be crowned at a finale in Budweiser’s home town, inside the gates of this historic St. Louis Brewery.
On July 11, the competition will culminate at a festival featuring 10 semi-finalists in a cook-off at the Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery. Festival attendees will have the chance to sample the burgers with Budweiser Signature Draught and then cast their vote to narrow down the group of 10 to three finalists. Budweiser Brewmasters, along with culinary pioneer and award-winning chef David Chang, will then determine who should be crowned as the best amateur burger chef.
Not only will the winner will be awarded $100,000 to start their culinary empire, but he or she will also be featured on the new Esquire Network show, “The Next Great Burger.” This new show will be filming at the Bud & Burgers Championship Festival, showcasing the rich history of the Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery.
The evening will include a special 4D projection of Budweiser’s Made In America concert at NYC’s Liberty Island.
