The 2nd Annual Craft Beer Festival & Burger Bash At PGA National Resort & Spa is finally in the books. It was a scorchingly hot South Florida day so it was a good thing there were misters and plenty of Beer to drink. The Craft Brewjas will be writing a report on their Beer findings shortly but in the meantime congratulations to Chuck Burger Joint for winning Best Burger 2 years in a row. Rounding out the victors were Mrs. Smokey’s Fried Biscuit Sliders who won for Best Alternative Burger and Hog Snapper’s Tuna Burger who snapped up the Most Innovative Burger title.

The Palm Beach Wine & Food Festival is having their very own burger event, Burgers by the Beach. It’s taking place next Saturday December 8th at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach’s Poolside Terrace from 12:30 – 3:30PM.
Who will be serving up the grilled goodness? Food Network’s Robert Irvine and Jeff Mauro, Bravo’s “Top Chef” winner Kevin Sbraga and Fabio Viviani & Four Seasons’ Executive Chef Darryl Moiles. Each one has created a signature burger and I gotta be honest, right now I’m partial to Jeff Mauro’s “Paddy Melt of the Year“. I absolutely love Patty Melts (yes, they count as Burgers).
This is not a competition so you won’t be scrambling to sample each burger before you make your decision. You’ll be able to relax on the oceanfront terrace, sit back under an umbrella and eat. Hey, it’s Burgers by the Beach, what else did you think you would be doing. Check out the menu below.
Chuck Burger Joint in Palm Beach has created 2 Calendars, one for Burgers & one for Shakes. These calendars will show off what Burgers & Shakes are the daily special. Sunday might be the right day to hit them up as you can get a “Breakfast Sammy” with a “Fluffer Nutter” Shake. The calendar starts this Saturday September 1st so you still have time to figure out what you’d like to do.
