Saturday, June 14, marks the 3rd annual Craft Beer and Burger Bash at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens.
As in years past, chefs from the area have been invited to strut their stuff and put out their best patties for the fest-goers. Three votes are given to each guest to vote for their favorite among the 20 or so burgers presented. Varieties include traditional burgers, seafood and exotic meat burgers and meat-alternatives – vegetarian burgers.
Approximately 70 varieties of craft beers and ciders will be poured for sampling, including those from local breweries such as Tequesta Brewing Co.
New this year: The location – a welcome relief to those who melted into the pavement of the parking lot previous years. This year, it’s on one of the greens, and with tents to provide shade.
Also new is the Concert on the Green following the Burger Bash. Little Feat guitarists Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett perform in a concert on the golf range with lawn seating available following the food fest.
Buy tickets to either event or both, starting at $45. Note that the special hotel packages available are sold out; there is a Florida resident rate, however, in effect at the PGA Resort and Spa.
