“Looking through the burgers it is a real flavour journey around the world, and even to Mars if people are up to try a fun breakfast burger! It’s been great to see some entries that are really pushing the boundaries of what a burger can be, and we’re looking forward to seeing how these go down with fans,” she says.
“It’s really important to us that the festival is accessible to all, so there’s budget friendly burgs as well as more decadent options like crayfish, caviar, oysters, and truffle making an appearance.”
“Food charity Everybody Eats have created a pay-as-you-feel burger that uses food that would otherwise go to waste, which means their burger offering is going to be a bit of a surprise - but this is a worthy organisation with amazing volunteer chefs such as Zac Bassant from Ortega Fish Shack, so we know it will be good! We’re absolutely thrilled to have them on board for Burger this year,” she adds.
Each year Garage Project creates a range of limited edition beers for Burger Wellington, with some such as the Pickle Beer becoming a permanent offering for the brewery. This year’s burger-friendly festival beers are: T Sauce which is a spicy tomato and salted lime sour; The Devil’s Lettuce a dank, hoppy California style IPA; and Good Shout a hoppy ultra low carb alongside all the usual Garage Project favourites.
Garage Project founder, Jos Ruffell, says this year marks a decade of Garage Project and Burger Wellington which has seen the brewery create dozens of limited edition burger-friendly and burger-inspired beers over the years. “We think there’s no better match for a burger than a beer, and it’s evident that Burger Wellington fans think so too.”
