Gourmet Cheese Burger and Fries

The hamburger derives its name from the city of Hamburg, Germany and are believed to be a derivation of steak tartare, which is a raw minced beef patty. During the 17th century Russian ships brought recipes for steak tartare to the port of Hamburg which is where many northern Europeans departed from on their way to America during the European migration. Our recipe for the burger patty is 50% ground beef and 50% ground chuck. We use ground check because it has a greater fat content than ground beef so you get a more flavorful burger.

Glass - Gourmet Cheese Burger and Fries

This meal is very filling so a brew that is light and easy drinking pairs well with it. We recommend pairing a session IPA. Session IPAs have big flavor but are low in alcohol clocking in at less than 5% ABV.
