Budweiser Is Looking For The Perfect Burger

Budweiser is known as the King of Beers. Now Budweiser is looking for the king of burgers. Budweiser just announced a national to find the Bud & Burgers Champion. Award-winning culinary pioneer, Chef David Chang will aid Budweiser with a coast-to-coast tour to find the best burger.

The winner of the Bud & Burgers Championship will win $100,000 to support their culinary ambitions. In addition, the winner will be invited to compete in a new cooking competition series, working title “United States of Burgers,” which will premiere on the Esquire Network.

“Both burgers and beer are experiencing a renaissance of sorts.” said Chang, who is well-known for elevating classic dishes, and for his love of lagers. “I love that there’s nothing pretentious about the combination – it just works. A full-flavored lager brings out the taste of a savory burger.”

Beginning today on National Beer Day, which is the official celebration of the repeal of prohibition of beer, burger enthusiasts 21 and older can submit a video or photo on Budweiser.com/Burgers showing their burger and explaining why they should be the 2015 Bud & Burgers Champion.

Semi-finalists will compete head-to-head at 10 nationwide Bud & Burgers Championships events hosted at some of the biggest festivals throughout the summer, including Stagecoach Music Festival, Free Press Summer Fest, Chicago Blues Festival and more. For a complete list of festivals and details on the contest, please visit Budweiser.com/eventfinder.

The competition will culminate at the finale event hosted by Budweiser and Chef Chang at the Budweiser Brewery in St. Louis on July 11, where the Bud & Burgers Champion will be crowned. Chang will join Budweiser’s brewmasters as a judge at the final event.
