Bud and Burgers Happy Hour Calendar 8/9-8/16: Where To Get (Discounted!) Budweiser and Burger Specials This Week
Let’s talk about the importance of food and drink pairings. Call it a champagne problem of the culinary set, but it doesn’t negate that a standout dish can be irreparably damaged by a poorly selected beverage accompaniment. (The worst offender: orange juice and penne alla vodka.) So when we got word that Budweiser is joining forces with local restaurants for a series of Bud-and-burger happy hours, we felt a professional responsibility to spread the word about the dynamic duo. Consider this our very delicious PSA.
This month, local restaurants are putting their own gastronomic spin on the Budweiser beer and burger special. (We’ve been chronicling them here, here and here.) And then, diners are invited to compete on social media for a sweet prize package (think: Made in America and Eagles tickets). Round up your officemates; these are your happy hour plans this week.
Great American Pub, August 13, 4pm to 6pm
Open for twenty years, this corner bar is spacious and great for a crowd. They’ll be serving up an elevated classic called the “GAP burger” which is made up of ground sirloin, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles sandwiched between a whole wheat brioche bun. Wash it down with a Bud. 101 North Narberth Avenue, Narberth.
Boyler Room, August 14, 7pm to 9pm
Here’s what you’re doing Friday night. A South Street bar with a friendly crowd, the Boyler Room is offering a $10 Bud-and-Burger special. “The Boyler Burger” consists of Angus beef, Budweiser-beer-battered pickles, aged cheddar, molasses ketchup, lettuce, tomato and onion, all served on a brioche bun. Upstairs, you’ll find a pool table and arcade games. 328 South Street.
While you make your way through the happy hours, snap a photo of you and your friends enjoying Bud and burgers at a Bud & Burgers Happy Hour location. Then, share your best photo on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BudAndBurgersPHL. You can also submit your picture on Facebook.
Winners of the photo contest will win an exclusive event package that includes: two VIP Budweiser Made in America tickets, two Philadelphia Eagles game tickets and two Battle of the Burger tickets. Four runners-up will receive two Battle of the Burger tickets.
Of course, the best way to sample all of the burgers and brews at the Bud & Burgers Happy Hours is to just go to all of ‘em. For more information about the contest and Budweiser, click here.
