Despite rain and crazy heat, last year’s PGA Craft Beer Festival & Burger Bash drew big, happy crowds to the grounds of PGA National Resort and Spa.
They repeat the event Saturday, June 15, from noon to 4 p.m. Dress for sun this year.
Chuck Burger Joint returns to reclaim its title of King of All Burgers, voted by the festival attendees. Trying to capture the title, a number of restaurants are submitting their best burgers – or burger-like entry. Bar Louie, Burger Bar, Cha Cha’s, Talay Thai, Chuck Burger Joint, Sweet’s Raw Bar, Four Seasons Resort, Millers Garden Ale House, CR Chicks, Corner Café, Hamburger Heaven, III Forks, The Office, Vic and Angelos, Mrs. Smokey’s BBQ, Whole Foods Market, Hurricane Café, Whole Foods Market, Hog Snappers Shack & Sushi, and Frigates will be grilling up patties in three categories: Best Burger, Best Alternative Burger and Best Innovative Burger.
It’s also a chance to sample 50 craft beers being poured in 2-ounce glasses. Live music and vendor booths are part of the scene.
PGA Resort is offering a special overnight rate for festival goers – a smart idea for those who plan to indulge. $169 gets you a room, parking pass and two $40 tickets – a real staycation deal. The resort offers five golf courses, a European spa, tennis and racquetball courts and more. The famous iBar and Ironwood Grill are on the premises.
The event benefits the Palm Beach County chapter of Surfrider Foundation, an organization that works to protect and raise awareness of the world’s oceans and beaches.
