Heineken Light Burger Beast Challenge

The Heineken Light Burger Beast Challenge began its life as the Amstel Light Burger Beast Challenge. Every January & February in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 Burger Beast visited anywhere between 15 and 25 restaurants and paired their signature burger with an Amstel Light (2015 & 2016) or a Heineken Light (2017, 2018 & 2019).

Burger Beast would then choose the burger that paired best with the beer. All the winners and participants are listed below.

You can check out all the burger posts under the Instagram hashtag #burgerbeastsweeps
