The Beijinger Burger Cup is back, and it’s bigger and beefier than ever. We’re shaking it up for 2014 with a slightly new format – instead of a cook off for the finalists, we are hosting a huge Burger Festival Launch Party to kick off this year’s competition.
Join us on Saturday, August 23 at Tube Station Pizza in Lido for Beijing’s biggest ever burger festival. 15 of your favorite local burger vendors (see below), including The Local, Alibi, The Vineyard, Great Leap Brewing and Home Plate Bar-B-Que, will be peddling their wares to up your burger-related excitement before voting for the final 64 burger venues starts. Duvel, Vandergeeten, Great Leap, and Panda Brew will be on hand selling drinks of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety should you need something to wash it all down with.
Date: Saturday, August 23, 2014
Venue: Tube Station Pizza, Lido (6 FangYuan Xilu, Chaoyang District, near the west corner of Lido Park)
Entrance: Free, burgers available for purchase individually
Voting will go live on Monday, August 25 but until then, stay tuned for Burger Wars (having started yesterday on thebeijinger.com), where we pit some of the Capital’s top burgers against each other.
